NTMir Presents Research at ATS 2016

At the American Thoracic Society International Conference in May, Amy Leitman from NTM Info & Research, along with Dr. Mehdi Mirsaeidi from the University of Miami, presented the results of a survey on geographic diversity of nontuberculous mycobacteria species among NTM patients in the United States.

The survey, which was conducted in late 2015 and early 2016, is to our knowledge the first study in the United States to map the geographic diversity of NTM on the state-to-state level. The results were presented at a poster session and discussion which featured more than a dozen posters on various subjects related to NTM lung disease.
