Abstract

Summary

Mucoid strains of isolated from the respiratory tract of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), those obtained from non-CF patients, and those obtained by the action of phage, were found to be stable in their mucoid colonial form when serially subcultured on deoxycholate-citrate agar. The ability of anionic, cationic and neutral surfactants to stabilise mucus production is described. The possible importance of dipalmitoyl lecithin as a stabilising agent for mucus production is considered, with particular reference to the role of mucoid in CF disease.
