Dear Dr Denning and JEEN,
Did you find any references to the CF delta f508 gene?
I am interested to see if there are any evidence of ABPA being hereditary
thanks
David Adamson

When I get an exercerbation I take sporonox, antibiotics, etc. Recently mycobacteriun Kansaii was cultured from a bronchoscopy I had, and I went to a hospital in Denver CO, National Jewish, which specializes in lung diseases to see if they could get a handle on why I was becoming more ill more frequently.
