A previous study reported that increased serum CA 19-9 levels may indicate clinical deterioration of PNTM disease (15) and some reports suggest that elevated CA 19-9 levels decreased after successful treatment of PNTM disease, contrary to pulmonary tuberculosis.
The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of serum CA 19-9 elevation in PNTM diseases.
A total of 59 patients with PNTM disease and 36 patients with pulmonary TB who visited Severance Hospital, a university-affiliated tertiary referral hospital in South Korea, between March 2011 and December 2013 were enrolled.
PNTM disease was diagnosed based on the American Thoracic Society (ATS) guidelines.
2006) lo cual coincide con las especies mas cazadas dentro del PNTM que son el anuje y el picuro.
Por otro lado, cabe destacar que no existen estudios sobre el estado poblacional de ningun mamifero mayor dentro del PNTM; en este sentido es imprescindible complementar los esfuerzos de conservacion que se dan dentro de las areas naturales protegidas con iniciativas de conservacion fuera de ellas (Gradwohl & Greenberg 1988).
Esto se debe seguir investigando ya que posiblemente haya una baja presion de caceria por la poblacion local, pero esta sea mayor por agentes externos, ademas es posible que los foraneos que ingresan al PNTM, para la extraccion de madera tambien practiquen actividades de caceria; asimismo la caceria comercial en la ZA afecta directamente la viabilidad de las especies que se encuentran dentro del ANP, principalmente de las que necesitan areas extensas para sobrevivir como el venado colorado (Mazamaamericana), el sajino (Pecari tajacu), el otorongo (Panthera onca), el tigrillo (Leopardus sp.), debiendose regular esta actividad tanto dentro como fuera del area.
The 5-year prevalence of pNTM disease was substantial and increased significantly during our population-based assessment in Ontario, Canada.
We suspect a multifactorial explanation for the increase in pNTM disease: an increase in susceptible hosts (aging, chronic lung disease) contributes (4); decades-old increases in water aerosol exposure could cause recent increases in pNTM disease, given the potential latency of pNTM disease; more computed tomographic scanning probably leads to sampling patients with previously unidentified abnormalities; and reduced tuberculosis, with an associated reduction in cross-immunity, may play a role.
CRPHF is a national reference center for the diagnosis and treatment of MDR TB, and it also functions as a local reference center for treatment of PNTM case-patients from Rio de Janeiro through an outpatient unit.
The study population comprised patients from the state of Rio de Janeiro who were referred to CRPHF for further evaluation, for either PNTM or MDR TB.
The number of PNTM cases identified from 1993 to 2005 ranged from 5 to 7 cases per year.
