  Purpose

Pulmonary exacerbations of CF are an important cause for the experienced disability of patients, respiratory symptoms, and decreases in lung function, which require antibiotic therapy at home or in the hospital. Therefore, prevention of exacerbations in CF is important. In an earlier prospective study during one year, we have demonstrated that non-invasive inflammatory markers in exhaled breath (condensate) are able to predict clinical CF exacerbation before they are clinically manifest. The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy of an intervention directed towards prevention of clinical CF exacerbations by means of early recognition and early antibiotic treatment.
