About this cause:

NTM (Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Disease) is a naturally occurring environmental pathogen which impacts tens of thousands of people every year in the United States alone. Underlying pulmonary problems and prior pneumonia are but a few risk factors, and a number of genetic diseases including Cystic Fibrosis, COPD, and Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency have a statistically demonstrable link with NTM. It is now known that immunosuppressive medications such as chemotherapy, prednisone, or drugs used to treat conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, psoriasis and Crohn’s Disease, may increase the risk of NTM infection. NTMir's mission is to save and improve lives through research, education, early detection, and improved treatments for people with pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) disease.
