Background The risk factors for Mycobacterium avium complex lung disease (MAC-LD) are not well known. We hypothesized that low serum estradiol (E2) levels are related to MAC-LD as most patients with MAC-LD are postmenopausal women.

Purpose The comparability between serum, plasma, and urinary measurements of estrogen metabolites via liquid chromatography鈥搕andem mass spectrometry (LC鈥揗S/MS) has not been largely explored, and it is unclear if urinary LC鈥揗S/MS measurements are suitable surrogates of circulating levels.

Rationale: In recent years, the number of pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial (PNTM) disease has been expected to be increasing in Japan. The latest epidemiological survey conducted in 2007 using the previous criteria showed that the incidence of PNTM was calculated to be 5.7 cases per 100,000 person-years by comparing the ratio of PNTM and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients. Therefore, the precise updated data has been urgently required. Methods: In 2014, questionnaires were sent to 884 J...

Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) pulmonary disease is prevalent in middle-aged to elderly women with a thin body habitus. By comparing the rate of serologically diagnosed asymptomatic MAC infection and body mass index among 1033 healthy subjects, we find that middle-aged to elderly women became infected with MAC, regardless of their body habitus.

Aim: The purpose of the research was to test and validate an innovative and safe chemiluminescence method to evaluate sexual hormones in serum and plasma samples of Tursiops truncatus. Materials and Methods: The research was performed on 9 bottlenose dolphins entertained in Oltremare and in Zoomarine aquatic parks, sampled by the tail vein or from the ventral one and an ultrasound monitoring, throughout a 6 months period. Blood samples were analyzed using a chemiluminescence method. Data obtaine...

Population-based data have documented a continued increase in NTM prevalence since 2000. Annual prevalence in North American and Australia ranges from 3.2鈥9.8 per 100,000, and is generally higher than in Europe. Studies of NTM PD from South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, also suggest increasing prevalence. In Africa and the Middle East, prevalence of NTM ranges from 4% 鈥15% among suspected TB cases and 18%鈥20% among suspected multi-drug resistant TB (MDR TB) cases. M. avium complex (MAC) is predomina...
Rationale: For unclear reasons, the phenotypical hosts for nontuberculous mycobacterial lung infection are often thin, elderly, white women without underlying lung disease. As these women are usually postmenopausal, we hypothesized that a state of relative hormone deficiency may predispose some women to pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial infection.Objectives: To conduct a prospective cross-sectional study to assess for alterations in systemic levels of sex hormones in patients with confirmed...

OBJECTIVE To compare pre-test diagnoses of mediastinal lymphadenopathy with histology obtained from cervical mediastinoscopy. METHODS Retrospective study of cervical mediastinoscopy outcomes between January 2009 and January 2011. We classified patients by histology and elicited whether the pre-test diagnosis was confirmed, supported or refuted by histology. The five histological groups were: i) non-caseating granuloma, ii) caseating granuloma, iii) undifferentiated granuloma, iv) malignant cells...

Rationale: Pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacteria (PNTM) are an important cause of morbidity among older adults in the United States, but national prevalence estimates are lacking. Objectives: To describe the prevalence and trends of PNTM disease among adults aged 65 years or older throughout the United States. Methods: A nationally representative 5% sample of Medicare Part B beneficiaries was analyzed from 1997 to 2007. Demographic and medical claims data were compiled and prevalence estimates f...

Short-term exposure to 17尾-estradiol (E2) in vitro has been reported to decrease the production of proinflammatory cytokines by LPS-activated macrophages through estrogen receptor 伪 (ER伪)-dependent activation of the PI3K pathway. In the present study, we confirm that in vitro exposure of mouse peritoneal macrophages to E2 enhanced Akt phosphorylation and slightly decreased LPS-induced cytokine production. In striking contrast, we show that chronic administration of E2 to ovariectomized mice mark...
Rationale: The diagnosis of Mycobacterium avium鈥揷omplex pulmonary disease (MAC-PD) and/or its discrimination from pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is sometimes complicated and time consuming.Objectives: We investigated in a six-institution multicenter study whether a serologic test based on an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) kit was useful for diagnosing MAC-PD and for distinguishing it from other lung diseases.Methods: An EIA kit detecting serum IgA antibody to glycopeptidolipid core antigen specific for M...

Abstract null null Nontuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary disease (NTM-PD) is increasingly recognized in the U.S. and worldwide as a debilitating disease that is challenging to diagnose and manage. Beyond the principle task of recognizing the protean imaging manifestations of NTM-PD, radiologists will need to appropriately communicate with pulmonology and infectious disease colleagues in multidisciplinary management discussions. This update on nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) species, their cli...

BACKGROUND The incidence of nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections has been increasing worldwide, becoming a significant healthcare burden especially among elderly people. This study aimed to evaluate the trends in NTM-associated mortality in Japan. METHODS This study used vital statistics data and data on all NTM-associated deaths (N=18,814) among individuals aged 鈮40 years in Japan from 1997 to 2016. We calculated the crude and age-adjusted mortality rates by age and sex and used joinpo...

BACKGROUND We aimed to address the knowledge gap that exists regarding the epidemiological, demographic, and clinical characteristics of nontuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary diseases (NTM-PDs) among smear-positive patients with symptoms suggestive of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in China. METHODS Prospective and national surveillance of NTM-PD was performed from 17 hospitals within the China Nontuberculous Mycobacteria Surveillance Study (CNTMS). Patients were eligible for inclusion if they ha...

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria pulmonary disease (NTM-PD) is an emerging condition with heterogeneous manifestations from both the microbiological and the clinical point of view. Diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines are available but unmet patients9 and physicians9 needs, including therapy-related adverse events, symptom control, management of comorbidities, risk of re-exposure to the pathogen and unfavourable outcomes are still relevant issues. In the present review, we provide currently availab...

BACKGROUND The microbiota of the lower respiratory tract in patients with non-tuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary disease (NTM-PD) has not been fully evaluated. We explored the role of the lung microbiota in NTM-PD by analyzing protected specimen brushing (PSB) and bronchial washing samples from patients with NTM-PD obtained using a flexible bronchoscope. RESULTS Bronchial washing and PSB samples from the NTM-PD group tended to have fewer OTUs and lower Chao1 richness values compared with those ...

Inflammation is a characteristic marker in numerous lung disorders. Several immune cells, such as macrophages, dendritic cells, eosinophils, as well as T and B lymphocytes, synthetize and release cytokines involved in the inflammatory process. Gender differences in the incidence and severity of inflammatory lung ailments including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis (PF), lung cancer (LC), and infectious related illnesses have been reported. Moreover, the eff...

Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung disease is one of a growing number of chronic health problems that is difficult to cure in aging societies. While it is important to be vigilant about associated comorbidities in order to provide better patient care, data on the prevalence of comorbidities stratified by country or region are scarce. We aimed to elucidate the comorbidities associated with NTM disease based on Japanese health insurance claims data. Cross-sectional analyses were performed usi...

Background and objectives The number of patients with pulmonary Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) disease is increasing worldwide, especially among middle-aged women and never-smokers. However, little is known about the factors causing exacerbations of pulmonary MAC disease in untreated patients. The aim of the present study was to identify the predictors of radiological aggravations of pulmonary MAC disease. Methods From April 2011 to December 2018, 238 MAC patients at our institute were newly ...
