We are looking for 1 additional (male) pulmonary MAC patient advisor for Kevin Winthrop’s PCORI-funded MAC2v3 pragmatic trial!

This is a remote advisor position, no travel for in-person meetings. Note that while this is a 5-year project, a full 5-year commitment to participate is not required. We have 4 patient advisors already identified, and are looking for 1 more to round out the panel.

This study is titled Comparison of two- versus three-antibiotic therapy for pulmonary Mycobacterium avium complex disease (“MAC2v3”). We will prospectively follow patients newly diagnosed with NTM who are randomized to either a 2-drug or 3-drug treatment regimen. Our objective is to determine whether or not a 2-drug treatment regimen is better tolerated and as effective (based on culture analysis) as a 3-drug regimen.
