Study of the dominant colon microbiota with cystic fibrosis patients.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme, Prof. Dr. Geert Huys BOF-UGent

This study aims to characterize the predominant members of the intestinal flora of a group of cystic fibrosis patients and to compare these with the microbiota of siblings without the cystic fibrosis phenotype. The effect of frequent and combined antibiotic use on the develoment of...
