Abstract

Lung infections represent a significant cause of mortaility to specific patient groups, notably custic fibrosis patients. While antibiotics have been effective against infection - causing pathogenuic bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the onset of antibiotic resistance has been a major concern and meant that alternative antibiotics and/or delivery mechanisms are required to achieve effective treatment.
