Germs & the Environment

Preventing infection is a serious issue for people with cystic fibrosis (CF).

People with CF can catch bacteria from each other, which can lead to worse symptoms and a decline in lung function. 


Chronic infection with certain pathogens in CF can lead to decreased lung function, poor growth, and increased hospitalisations. It is important, therefore, to prevent infection where possible.
