The author discusses the use of the U.S. Cystic Fibrosis Foundation patient registry (CFFPR) by C. Harness Brumley et al to address the issue of a reassessment of gender-based survival differences and the determination for the presence of gender-based variation in common cystic fibrosis (CF) microorganisms other than P. aeruginsa. Findings suggest the existence of a microbiologic CF named the microbiologic gap in addition to the CF gender-based survival difference.
