Treatment of pulmonary infections in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) can be challenging due to organisms unique to CF and antibiotic resistance (1). Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections are prevalent in patients with CF and have been associated with poor clinical outcomes. The increasing prevalence of MRSA infections in CF has led to the advent of newer modalities of receiving antibiotics such as inhaled therapies. (2) Inhaled vancomycin is often used in the CF population to treat refractory MRSA infections and has been shown to improve clinical outcomes (2-3).

Instead, it’s a peak behind the curtain at what might be the hidden story behind the marvelous kids we already see on today’s playgrounds across the country. Most are very healthy – among the healthiest kids in history. Yes, too many are overweight. Too many have asthma. Too many have allergies. Too many have learning problems.
