deterioration of respiratory function in CF patients not infected with NTM compared to CF patients infected with NTM. 26 patients were infected with NTM: 14/26 with M. avium complex (MAC), 10/26 with M. abscessus complex and 2/26 with M. gordonae. Only 5 patients out of a dozen positive to M. abscessus and 1 in 14 positive to MAC were treated. Comparatively, the other study found a significant deterioration in respiratory function (maximum expired volume in 1 seconde) of CF patients infected with M (...) on the prevalence of positive serological responses in cystic fibrosis patients. Serological analyzes of the sera collected during this study will enable us to evaluate the performance of serology in mycobacterial culture and to identify patients with no positive respiratory specimen in culture but with positive serology indicating potential contact with a mycobacterium. The establishment of a serological follow-up of these patients will allow to correlate this result with a clinical evolution

judged by serial bacteriological results. New episodes of NTM-PI and pulmonary colonization (PC) occurring since 2010 were analyzed. Logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the predictors of NTM-PI. Between 2010 and 2014, the incidence rate of NTM-PI was 46.0 episodes per 100,000 hospital-based patient-years. Mycobacterium avium intracellulare complex (MAC) was predominant in Northern Taiwan, whereas MAC and M. abscessus were copredominant in Southern Taiwan. Multiple episodes occurred

were female (52%) and white (70%). Hospitals with cases were more often labeled "urban" (96%), "teaching" (56%), and had at least 500 beds (78%). Species distribution differed significantly by geographic area. Mycobacterium avium complex ranged from 61 to 91% of isolates and were most frequent in the South and Northeast regions; M. abscessus/M. chelonae ranged from 2 to 18% of isolates and were most frequent in the West; and other species, including M. fortuitum and M. kansasii, ranged from 7 to 26 (...) % and were also most frequent in the West.Significant geographic variation exists in the distribution of nontuberculous mycobacterial species in the United States. Whereas M. avium complex was the most common species isolated in the South, M. abscessus/M. chelonae was proportionately higher in the West. Greater clinical awareness in regions with increased levels of harder-to-treat mycobacteria are needed, given differences in treatment options and implications for patient outcomes.

Genotyping and drug susceptibility testing of mycobacterial isolates from population-based tuberculosis prevalence survey in Ghana. Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) and Non-tuberculosis Mycobacterium (NTM) infections differ clinically, making rapid identification and drug susceptibility testing (DST) very critical for infection control and drug therapy.

. The subjects were divided into definite (n = 9, NTM isolated from the pleura or pleural effusion) and possible (n = 5, NTM lung disease with pleural effusion and improvement of effusion after anti-NTM treatment) groups. Clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes were analyzed. Patients with Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) lung disease but without pleuritis were selected (the MAC-LD group) and compared with the MAC pleuritis (MAC-PD) group.The median age of the 14 NTM pleuritis patients was 68 years (...) , and the majority were men (9/14, 64.3%). Mycobacterium intracellulare was the most common species detected (50.0%), followed by M. avium (35.7%), M. abscessus (7.1%) and M. kansasii (7.1%). The median lymphocyte frequency and adenosine deaminase level in the effusion were 83% and 97 IU/L, respectively. Eight patients successfully completed treatment, although 2 patients died as a consequence of uncontrolled NTM disease. The MAC-PD group had less nodular bronchiectatic lung features and a lower treatment

369. Usefulness of Chinese Herbal Medicines as Host-Directed Therapeutics against Mycobacterial Infections: A Review. (Abstract)

Usefulness of Chinese Herbal Medicines as Host-Directed Therapeutics against Mycobacterial Infections: A Review. The high incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in developing countries, the resurgence of TB in industrialized countries, and the worldwide increase in the prevalence of Mycobacterium avium complex infections have prompted the quest for new antimycobacterial drugs. However, the development of such chemotherapeutics is currently making very slow progress. It therefore appears that devising

Methodological Approaches for Monitoring Opportunistic Pathogens in Premise Plumbing: A Review Opportunistic premise (i.e., building) plumbing pathogens (OPPPs, e.g., Legionella pneumophila, Mycobacterium avium complex, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acanthamoeba, and Naegleria fowleri) are a significant and growing source of disease. Because OPPPs establish and grow as part of the native drinking water microbiota, they do not correspond to fecal indicators, presenting a major challenge to standard

The HRM analysis generated six unique specific groups representing M. tuberculosis complex, M. kansasii, M. simiae, M. fortuitum, M. abscessus-M. chelonae group, and M. avium complex. In conclusion, this study showed that the rpoBC-based real-time PCR followed by HRM (...) melting (HRM) analysis, was developed for the differentiation of Mycobacterial species using a novel rpoBC sequence. A total of 107 mycobacterial isolates (nine references and 98 clinical isolates) were subjected to differentiation using rpoBC locus sequence in a real-time PCR-HRM assay scheme. From 98 Mycobacterium clinical isolates, 88 species (89.7%), were identified at the species level by rpoBC locus sequence analysis as a gold standard method. M. simiae was the most frequently encountered

Surgery was performed on seven patients, in addition to thoracic drainage for the treatment of pleurisy and pneumothorax. Three patients died of respiratory failure. Conclusion Pneumothorax is a frequent complication of NTM pleurisy, often making the condition difficult to treat. Surgery at an appropriate time should therefore considered for refractory cases.

. Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis (2), M. avium subsp. avium (1), and M. fortuitum (1) were isolated from powdered infant formula and ground beef, chicken sausage, and mortadella cold cut, respectively. Mycobacterial DNA (M. avium, M. tuberculosis complex and other nontuberculous mycobacteria) was detected in 15% of dairy products and 2% of meat products. These results show that the prevalence of viable mycobacteria in foods of animal origin obtained at the supermarket was not substantial although
