Background. Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization, prominent inflammation with massive expression of the neutrophil chemokine IL-8 and luminal infiltrates of neutrophils are hallmarks of chronic lung disease in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. The nociceptive Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) calcium channels have been recently found involved in non-neurogenic inflammation.

Hypothesis and objectives. TRPA1 channels could be involved in the pro-inflammatory signaling pathways activated in CF airway epithelial cells infected by P. aeruginosa. The principal objective is to verify whether TRPA1 channels could be relevant molecular targets for innovative anti-inflammatory therapies in CF patients.
