Candida glabrata
Dear ladies and gentlemen, Candida glabrata has been found for the first time in my airway secretions (CF, 48 years old, female, FEV1 54%, MRGN3/4). I found a study from the university of Tuebingen, Germany from 2016 that drew the conclusion that a chronic or intermittend colonization can lead to a significant loss of lung function. As the fungus is hardly sensitive to Itraconazol, I am a bit worried. Is there any clinical experience on this topic? What kind of symptoms does it cause? How can it be differentiated from a bacterial infection? What kind of treatment is possible? Many thanks for your answer,

Trikafta and transplantation
Hello, my son is 20 years old, and is a CF patient with one deltaF508 mutations. Due to his extremly worsened lung function, his CF center recommended to take Trikafta. He got a liver transplant in 2017; this is the reason why he should discuss the take with his CF center. The center, however has no experience with transplanted patients and Trikafta. Do you have any information?

Inhalative antibiotics during pregnancy
Hello, I am 30 years old and pregnant with my second child. During my first pregnancy I inhaled pulmozyme, aztreonam and hypertonic saline and did not think about it. I took the whole time cefuroxim as an oral antibiotic. During this pregnancy I informed myself via the internet and found reports that dehorted the usage of pulmozyme and aztreonam during pregnancy, now I do not know, what to do. I stopped cefuroxim in august and I am quite doing well. Do I harm my child with the inhaled drugs? My lung function value FEV1 is 84%. In my center I unfortunately get only insecure answers, as I would be the first pregnang woman for them. Many thanks for your answer.

Effects of atypic CF F508del/p.Thr582Ile
Dear expert team, I am 20 years old and a few years ago, the above mentioned mutation has been found, however the physicians were not able to give me a real prognosis. My sweat test was inbetween normal and pathologic. The mutation had been found after I had several pancreatitis episodes, however several anatomical anomalies had been found to be the reason for it (among others narrowing of the ductus and a pancreas divisum) and after an operation I had no symtoms anymore. All my lung function test had been normal so far and until now I did not have any problems with mucus in the lungs or problems to breathe, even when I had a cold that was not a problem for me. I would be interested if there is any information about this mutation. Best regards,

Orkambi or Symkevi - contraception
Hello, I am thinking about changing from Orkambi, which had a good effect in my case, to Symkevi. In the studies it could be shown that the increasement of the FEV1 lung value is even 1-2% better compared to Orkambi and there should be less side effects. Now my question: can I switch again to hormonal contraception (the pill) if I take Symkevi instead of Orkambi? Many thanks
