Yeager H, Raleigh JW. MAC lung disease natural history and long-term outcomes are poorly documented, particularly at the population level . We systematically reviewed the literature up to 1st August 2017 using PubMed® and ProQuest Dialog™ to search Medline® and Embase® databases, respectively. Diel et al. identified an even greater mortality risk (HR 3.64, 95% CI 2.28–5.77) and a mortality after 39 months follow-up of 22.4% for NTM-PD patients versus 6.0% for control patients . Google Scholar. Mortality after respiratory isolation of nontuberculous mycobacteria: a comparison of patients who did and did not meet disease criteria. 2014;11(1):1–8. 2b). The long-term outlook (prognosis) for people who are sick from mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infections depends on the type of infection and whether or not the person has other medical conditions or health problems. Adjemian J, Olivier KN, Seitz AE, Holland SM, Prevots DR. 2a. As shown above, the three studies where MAC lung disease cases were matched with appropriate controls consistently showed an increased risk of mortality for patients with NTM-PD or MAC-PD [21, 26, 27]. Substantial heterogeneity in study characteristics was found, with male sex, presence of cavitary disease and high comorbidity levels predicting worse survival outcomes. Front Microbiol. The aim of this study was to investigate the natural course of untreated stable MAC-LD, with a focus on factors associated with clinical deterioration, spontaneous sputum conversion and prognosis. Nontuberculous pulmonary mycobacteriosis in Denmark: incidence and prognostic factors. Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is the most common form of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM).NTM are bacteria commonly found in the environment.. MAC … Clinical characteristics, treatment outcomes, and resistance mutations associated with macrolide-resistant Mycobacterium avium complex lung disease. Am J Respir Crit Care Med. nov.

American Thoracic Society/Infectious Diseases Society of America, The Research Committee of the British Thoracic Society, Nontuberculous mycobacteria pulmonary disease, Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. Five-year all-cause overall mortality among the 78 patients with definite MAC disease (including treated and untreated chronic MAC patients) was 25.6%. Correspondence to Emerg Infect Dis. This demonstrated that patients with fibrocavitary disease have a substantially greater risk of death compared with nodular disease (Fig. Here, 55% of the cases and 61% of the non-cases died during the follow-up period (2007–2014), with no statistically significant difference in five-year mortality between cases and non-cases . The datasets used and/or analysed during the current study are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request. Some interstitial lung diseases have a better prognosis than others. Three studies included data from two cohorts of patients with MAC lung disease, and these are considered separately for the purposes of this analysis [19, 23, 25]. The proportion of all MAC-attributable deaths was reported by nine studies, and these data are shown in Fig. I had no symptoms at all - my internist ordered a routine chest x-ray as part of my physical examination and a spot was seen on my lung. Most of our selected studies do not explicitly identify patients with macrolide-resistant pulmonary disease. [ 16] reported that desiccated M. avium lose viability at a constant rate (half-life, 2.3 days). Hayashi M, Takayanagi N, Kanauchi T, Miyahara Y, Yanagisawa T, Sugita Y. Prognostic factors of 634 HIV-negative patients with Mycobacterium avium complex lung disease. Black bars indicate fibrocavitary disease, grey bars indicate nodular/bronchiectatic disease. Mycobacterium avium complex is a group of mycobacteria comprising Mycobacterium intracellulare and Mycobacterium avium that are commonly grouped because they infect humans together; this group, in turn, is part of the group of nontuberculous mycobacteria.These bacteria cause disease in humans called Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection or Mycobacterium avium complex infection.

MAC includes two closely related species, Mycobacterium avium and Mycobacterium intracellulare, and may also be referred to as MAI.MAC is one of a large group of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), and the most common cause of NTM lung disease … b Funnel plot of five-year all-cause mortality versus standard error from selected data sets. This may be driven, in part, by the relatively high proportion of nodular/bronchiectatic disease in Japanese studies , which most reports suggest has a better outcome. This is challenging for the field as a whole, and further prospective studies of mortality in MAC-PD patients, which could support identification of additional prognostic factors, are warranted. Effective treatment choices for these people are few, essentially limited to intensification or modification of the first-line regimen or surgical resection of infected lung tissue . 2017;14(7):1112–9. Clarithromycin vs ciprofloxacin as adjuncts to rifampicin and ethambutol in treating opportunist mycobacterial lung diseases and an assessment of Mycobacterium vaccae immunotherapy.

The less severe form is known as nodular bronchiectasis, in which the airways of the lungs become damaged, and subsequently dilate and become scarred. Privacy Furthermore, whereas all-cause mortality is an objective measure, the proportion of deaths attributed to MAC lung infection depends largely on how clinicians determine the cause of death. PubMed Faria S, Joao I, Jordao L. General overview on nontuberculous mycobacteria, biofilms, and human infection. Both found that patients with fibrocavitary disease had increased five-year MAC-related mortality compared with patients with nodular/bronchiectatic disease (Fig. Design: English language studies were selected. Flow chart describing the selection of studies and data sets included in the analysis. Relatively few studies have explored differences in mortality between cases with confirmed ATS/IDSA disease criteria against those with NTM isolation only. MAC lung disease is an infection caused a group of bacteria called Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). Following comparison of the results and de-duplication, 1035 publications remained. Nontuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary infections. The mortality rate was 33.3% for untreated chronic MAC patients only vs. 22.2% for treated MAC patients (P = 0.30). Bamba Y, Moro H, Aoki N, Koizumi T, Ohshima Y, Watanabe S, Sakagami T, Koya T, Takada T, Kikuchi T. BMC Infect Dis.

Floto RA, Olivier KN, Saiman L, Daley CL, Herrmann JL, Nick JA, Noone PG, Bilton D, Corris P, Gibson RL, et al. Similarly, five-year age-adjusted mortality rates were slightly higher for patients meeting (28.7/1000) versus not meeting (23.4/1000) ATS/IDSA criteria, respectively, in the report by Novosad identified in our analysis . Despite high heterogeneity, most studies in patients with MAC pulmonary disease document a five-year all-cause mortality exceeding 25%, indicating poor prognosis. However, unlike our study, the authors did not distinguish between MAC-PD and MAC-non-PD. These findings emphasise the need for more effective management and additional prospective mortality data collection. The breathing tubes become abnormally dilated and small “pockets” form in … 2012;25(2):218–27. Eur Respir J. Am J Respir Crit Care Med.

A steady increase in nontuberculous mycobacteriosis mortality and estimated prevalence in Japan. The mortality rate was 33.3% for untreated chronic MAC patients only vs. 22.2% for treated MAC … Fourteen of 1035 identified studies, comprising 17 data sets with data from a total of 9035 patients, were eligible. The most common type of nontuberculous mycobacterial lung infection that causes pulmonary disease in the United States are due to the group of bacteria in the M. avium complex (MAC). Recent work from Ontario, Canada, also reported an increased mortality in patients with MAC lung disease compared with a matched control group (HR = 1.57, 95% CI 1.48–1.66, P < 0.0001) . Prior to the availability of newer macrolides, the life expectancy of a patient with AIDS and DMAC infection was 4 months. Thus, MAC lung disease fulfilling ATS/IDSA criteria is associated with a worse outcome. Several factors appeared to be consistent across studies.

It can occur in the context of lung disease caused by, for example, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cystic fibrosis (CF), and also in people with apparently normal lungs [2, 3]. Patients with underlying lung disease or immunosuppression may develop progressive MAC lung disease. Fleshner and colleagues also documented pulmonary hypertension as a risk factor for mortality (aHR 2.1, 95% CI 0.9–5.1), although this was not significant following adjustment for fibrocavitary disease; importantly, individual NTM species were not significantly associated with mortality, suggesting similar risks for each NTM species identified in the study . BMC Infect Dis. Two studies examined patients with other NTM infections (with the data for the MAC subgroup considered for this analysis) [20, 21], and one investigated nodular/bronchiectatic MAC lung disease .
