Nontuberculous mycobacterial Infections Understanding
Nontuberculous mycobacterial Infections: Overview
Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung disease is a general term for a group of disorders characterized by exposure to specific bacterial germs known as mycobacteria. These germs are found in the water and soil and are common throughout the environment as a whole. They usually do not cause illness. The term ‘nontuberculous’ is used to differentiate these disorders from the mycobacterium that cause tuberculosis (i.e. mycobacterium tuberculosis complex).
The symptoms and severity can vary greatly from one person to another. The reason for this variability is not fully understood. Chronic lung infection is the most common complication affecting approximately 94% of individuals. The symptoms are usually nonspecific and similar to the symptoms seen in other lung or respiratory infections. Such symptoms include cough, fatigue, shortness of breath (dyspnea), coughing up of blood (hemoptysis), excessive mucus (sputum) production, fever, night sweats, loss of appetite, and unintended weight loss. Wheezing and chest pain may also occur. Affected individuals may experience recurrent respiratory infections. In some cases, these infections can cause progressive damage to the lungs and, eventually, the lungs will not function as well as they should (impaired lung function).
A diagnosis of nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease is based upon identification of characteristic symptoms, a detailed patient history, a thorough clinical evaluation and a variety of specialized tests. However, the diagnosis can be challenging because the characteristic signs and symptoms are highly variable and nonspecific. A diagnosis of NTM includes ruling out other diseases such as tuberculosis or lung cancer.
Treatment with a combination of antibiotic drugs (drug regimen) is the mainstay of therapy for these diseases. However, these drugs carry certain risks (side effects) and are often poorly tolerated, have a high cost, and require individuals to remain on the medications for a lengthy period of time. These risks must be weighed against the potential benefits for each individual based upon the severity of their disease and specific symptoms that are present. If a decision is made not to treat, then an affected individual should be closely monitored to promptly detect any progression of the infection.
Nontuberculous mycobacterial Infections Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Nontuberculous mycobacterial Infections report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Nontuberculous mycobacterial Infections Emerging Drugs
Molgradex is an inhaled formulation of recombinant human GM-CSF. The benefit of GM-CSF is that it is not an antibiotic, as many bacterial species are becoming resistant to antibiotics it stimulates the human immune system without targeting the bacteria directly, which bypasses the problem of antibiotic resistance. It is in phase II trials for treating NTM infections along with NTM in cystic fibrosis. The company awaits the trial results from both of these studies.
- RHB-204: Red Hill BioPharma
RHB-204 is a combination antibiotic therapy in oral capsule formulation, with potent intracellular, antimycobacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. If it gets approval then, may be used as a first line of treatment for Pulmonary NTM infections caused by MAC. RedHill is planning, subject to regulatory approvals, to initiate a pivotal Phase 3 study with RHB-204 for a first-line, stand-alone treatment of pulmonary NTM infections caused by Mycobacterium avium Complex (MAC).
CYT107 is a therapeutic form of the master growth factor for human T cells: Interleukin-7 (IL-7). CYT107 has been administered to over 440 patients in clinical trials and is known to substantially increase the number and diversity of T cells, including in patients in the ICU with low and exhausted T cell levels from overwhelming infections. CYT107 has an excellent safety profile, even in very sick patients.
