Background: Chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization (Pa-CC) affects cystic fibrosis (CF) progression, including pulmonary exacerbations and pulmonary function tests. There are few studies of the effects of eradication protocols on colonization time. Here, we aimed to evaluate the effect of eradication regimens on chronic colonization and assess the impact of Pa-CC on body mass index, lung functions, and pulmonary exacerbations.
