Abstract

Aspergillus fumigatus is often isolated from the lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, but unlike in severely immunocompromised individuals, the mortality rates are low. This suggests that competition from bacteria within the CF lung may be inhibitory. The purpose of this study was to investigate how Pseudomonas aeruginosa influences A. fumigatus conidial germination and biofilm formation. Aspergillus fumigatus biofilm formation was inhibited by direct contact with P. aeruginosa, but had no effect on preformed biofilm.
