Rhinovirus is the most common infection early in life for young children with cystic fibrosis, and it drives pulmonary exacerbation which can permanently affect lung function. We have previously identified specific inflammatory signalling present in the CF airway can be induced by rhinovirus infectin, and thus can be targeted by translation of currently approved drugs in other diseases to target inflammation following infection.
