Summary:
Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM): Microbiological, Clinical and Geographical Distribution is a complete reference that stimulates a greater understanding of NTM infections. Sections cover microbiologic and molecular diagnostic tools, drug susceptibility tests, human genetic susceptibility, prevalence and incidence studies, clinical and radiological presentations, and clinical trials for antibiotic therapy. With the incidence rate of NTM infections increasing globally during the last decade, significant mortality and morbidity must be addressed. This important reference will provide research scientists, clinical microbiologists, hospital diagnostic technicians, and post graduate medical and science students with information on the epidemiology, prevalence, microbiology and clinical aspects of NTM. Highlights new findings in the epidemiological distribution and new diagnosis and treatment protocol of mycobacterial infections Debates new advances in the detection of NTM Demonstrates the distribution of NTM in the environment and its relationship with human infection using a geographical information system (GIS) Includes new radiological findings in non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections in the lung using CT and PET-Scan imaging

This book is a comprehensive and authoritative source on nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) pathogens and diseases and their appropriate management, with a focus on lung disease. NTM diseases, especially lung diseases, are increasing in prevalence in the U.S. and internationally with concomitant growing interest in a broad section of the medical community. Often merely included in coverage of tuberculosis, many aspects of NTM organisms and diseases are actually very different than TB. These differences are not intuitive or trivial and

Incidence of pulmonary disease caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), such as Mycobacterium abscessus and M. avium, is increasing at an alarming rate, surpassing tuberculosis (TB) in many countries. Treatment durations are extremely long. With low sputum conversion rates, the outcomes are often disappointing. Thus, NTM disease resembles extremely drug resistant TB. There is an urgent need for increased research on this dreadful disease. For this book we brought together experts from a wide range of disciplines addressing current status, gaps

Since ocular infections are one of the most frequent occurrences in ophthalmology, the treatment for these infections must be fast, precise and effective. In order to address this goal, it is important to identify and characterize the culprit microorganisms involved in the pathogenesis of ocular infections. Clinical diagnosis of ocular infections can be confirmed by several techniques based on microbiological test of ocular samples. Some of these techniques include classic microbiological testing in which it is necessary to isolate microorganisms

Progress obtained by mycobacteriology in recent years is undeniable with regards to preventing, detecting, and treating cases of tuberculosis, millennial disease that is still present as public health issue worldwide. We present here high-impact research and interest topics related to the application of new methodologies, especially molecular methods for rapid diagnostic such as rapid DST, application of high performance liquid chromatography, molecular epidemiology and molecular diagnostic testing on post mortem. Currently, the constant search for vaccines that prevent the disease


Factors Associated with Mycobacterium Avium Complex Infection and Pulmonary Disease Progression

Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), a resilient and ubiquitous non-tuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) commonly found in water and soil, is a pathogen that can cause infection or pulmonary disease (MAC-PD). MAC-PD is an emerging condition but remains under-studied, particularly in characterizing infection, disease progression, and risk factors. Initially, a case-control study of San Diego patients examined factors associated with being culture-positive for MAC (n=62), relative to being positive for rapid-grower (n=32) and culture-negative (n=44). The majority of MAC+ patients had underlying lung
