P. aeruginosa , a common cause of nosocomial urinary tract infections (UTI’s), represents 7% of nosocomially-acquired UTIs in North America and Europe These infections are associated with  an indwelling catheter , instrumentation of the urinary system, chronic prostatitis , nephrolithiasis, as well as prior antibiotic therapy. Community-acquired UTI’s are rarely caused by  P. aeruginosa  ( 97 ). In those persons with a neurogenic bladder, or in  children with frequent infection  from vesicoureteral reflux (VUR),  P. aeruginosa  UTI infection may occur.  P. aeruginosa  should be suspected in break-through infections in the urinary tract, especially in a host recently and/ or currently receiving antimicrobial agents, due to its nature to be resistant to many common antibiotics. In the elderly, urosepsis from  P. aeruginosa  may also follow acquisition of a simple UTI. Treatment regimens depend upon the presence of structural abnormalities or indwelling catheter(s), evidence of systemic  sepsis , as well as the site of involvement, and prior antibiotic use. Eradication of the organism remains challenging and requires elimination of the predisposing factors in addition to antibiotic therapy.

"Research in the area of NTM lung disease has been woefully underfunded with no major therapeutic advances in the last 20 years. The availability of a once-a-day product that can help reduce bacterial density in these patients would represent a major step forward in the treatment of this disease," added Dr. Griffith.
