Objectives: Repeated cycles of pulmonary exacerbation of chronic infection causetissue damage and progressive drop in lung function for CF patients so makingeffective treatment and prevention strategies imperative. Our study aims to betterunderstand the response to antibiotics and identify biomarker targets suitable forimproved therapeutic or preventative treatments.Methods: Multidimensional LC-MS/MS and relative quantitation was employed toinvestigate the changes in sputum cellular proteome following antibiotic treatmentin 12 CF patients chronically infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa.Conclusions: 1989 human proteins were identified in total. 37 proteins out ofthe 318 detected in >80% samples were differentially expressed (p
