Inhaled steroids may increase risk of nontuberculous mycobacteria lung disease

Patients with obstructive lung disease who take inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) may be at greater risk for nontuberculous mycobacteria pulmonary disease (NTM PD), according to new research presented at the ATS 2016 International Conference. The researchers analyzed the medical records of 417,494 older adults living in Ontario, Canada, who were treated for COPD, asthma or both diseases between 2001 and 2013 and identified 2,964 cases of NTM PD. Nontuberculous mycobacteria are widely dispersed and increasingly found in the environment. In most cases, they are harmless. However, some people can develop serious lung infections as a result of inhaling NTM that must be treated with multiple antibiotics, typically over 18 months.
