Abstract : In our model, the current therapy against MAC is ineffective, even when accounting for antibiotic accumulation at the site of infection and intracellularly. New treatment regimens need to be developed and be compared with currently recommended regimens in dynamic models prior to clinical evaluation. With the publication of all protocols we aim to open this technology to new users.
