Özet

Background and Aims. Although apoptotic dysfunction has recently been suggested in cystic fibrosis (CF), there are few studies reported concerning apoptosis in CF with controversial results. The aim of this study was to investigate apoptosis in CF human lung tissues and compare with non-CF bronchiectatic and normal healthy lung tissues. We also investigated the relation between apoptosis and histopathological features of tissues and microbiological factors influencing apoptosis.
