Latest publications

We have just published an updated version of our review 'Nebuliser systems for drug delivery in cystic fibrosis' adding a total of 13 new studies, although five of these were previously listed as 'Awaiting classification'. Despite the inclusion of the new studies, our main conclusions have not changed and we found insufficient data to establish whether one nebuliser system is better than another overall. We could not find evidence for all systems and all types of medication used in CF care, although we did find that the newer technologies e.g. AAD and VMT have some advantages over conventional systems. Clinicians need to be aware of the variability in the performance of different nebuliser systems, compatibility with specific nebulised medication, and they must work with their patients to choose the best nebuliser system for each individual.
