Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: To evaluate the effect of nebulized bicarbonate on bacterial infections in the airway of patients with CF diagnosis.
Primary end point(s): Number of sputum cultures positive to Pseudomonas, taken at each follow-up visit during the year of study.
Secondary Objective: - Analyze the pH variation of the airway after nebulized bicarbonate therapy.
- To evaluate the cellular inflammatory changes that occur in the sputum, after nebulization with bicarbonate.
- To compare the effect on bronchial obstruction of nebulized bicarbonate in the airway versus hypertonic saline solution 7% using the Leicester Cuestionario.
- To compare the number of patients chronified at the end of the study, in both groups.
- To compare the quality of life of patients in groups A and B.
- Assess adherence to treatment by controlling the dispensing and the Morinsky-Green test.
- Analyze possible adverse reactions.
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: Every 8 weeks during 52 weeks
Secondary Outcome(s)
Secondary end point(s): - Number of sputum cultures positive for staphylococcus and other bacteria, mycobacteria and fungi, taken at each follow-up visit during the year of study.
- Time between the start of the study and the first culture of positive sputum.
- Changes in the pH of the airway fluid measured in the induced sputum in each visit compared to baseline
- Changes in the quality of life test score in each visit compared to baseline
- Changes from baseline in total lung volume by plethysmography at 12 months of treatment
- Changes in the cellularity of the induced sputum in each of the visits
- Leicester Cough Questionnaire on each visit
- Adverse reactions
- Morinsky adhesion test
- Number of exacerbations per patient at end of study
- Evolution with respect to baseline in FEV1 by spirometry in each of the study visits
- Vitamin A, D, E levels, prothrombin time and thromboplastin time
- Sobel test at 12 months of treatment
- Radiological changes in the pulmonary parenchyma by pulmonary CT of low irradiation at 12 months of treatment
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: Every 2 months during 52 weeks
