This CME program is derived from content presented at the Eastern Pulmonary Conference Annual Meeting. The expert faculty, Dr. Anne E. O’Donnell, will first highlight the pathophysiology, prevalence, and high-risk subgroups of non-tuberculous mycobacterial lung disease (NTM-LD). Following, Dr. O’Donnell will analyze current strategies for determining immunocompetent hosts and detecting radiographic manifestations in NTM-LD. The clinical implications of recent trial data for inhaled amikacin liposome therapeutics, including longer-term data and future considerations, will be reviewed. Upon completion of this activity, learners will be better equipped with current resources to provide optimal, tailored treatment for patients with NTM-LD.
Pulmonologists and other healthcare providers who are involved in the care and treatment of patients with nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease (MAC lung disease)
- Review the science, diagnostic recommendations, and disease burden of nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease (NTM-LD) caused by mycobacterium avium complex (MAC)
- Analyze clinical applications and longer-term data for amikacin liposome inhalation therapeutics for the treatment of MAC lung disease
I. MAC Lung Disease Diagnostic Recommendations, Disease Burden, and Scientific Update
