Abstract
From 1960 to 1965, 44,629 cultures were performed on persons attending chest clinics in the Niagara Peninsula.Tubercle bacilli were cultured from 965 biological specimens (2.16%) and atypical mycobacteria from 281 specimens (0.62%).Twelve subjects had more than one variety of atypical mycobacterium in their secretions, suggesting the occurrence of mutation. The administration of antituberculous drugs may have contributed to the emergence of atypical mycobacteria in some instances, but 41 patients had never received antituberculous drugs.Of 113 persons from whom atypical mycobacteria were cultured only two had lung infection primarily due to the atypical mycobacterium isolated.

Abstract
In 2003, we identified an outbreak of clinically distinct lesions involving the hands and feet associated with a public wading pool in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. A total of 85 cases were identified. The management and follow-up of 41 children and 1 adult patients is presented. Skin lesions occurred within a median incubation period of 29 days and approximately 88 days for the adult patient. Lesions resolved within a median of 58 days and approximately 150 days for the adult patient. Patients were treated with clarithromycin, topical antibiotic dressings, and/or incision and drainage of pustules or followed without treatment. All resolved without complication. The pool was closed and cleaned. The M. abscessus hand-and-foot disease is characterized by the onset, mainly in children, of tender, erythematous papules, pustules, and abscesses with a self-limited course. This is the first documented M. abscessus outbreak associated with wading pool exposure.

Abstract
A series of studies have assessed the occurrence, levels, and potential adverse effects of persistent organic pollutants (POP) in fish from Lake Mjøsa. In this lake, high levels of various POP were detected in biota. Fish from the nearby Lake Losna contain background levels of POP and served as reference (controls) in these studies. Significantly higher prevalence of mycobacteriosis and pathological changes were documented in burbot (Lota lota) from Mjøsa compared to burbot from Losna. Further, transcriptional profiling identified changes in gene expression in burbot from Mjøsa compared to burbot from Losna associated with drug metabolism enzymes and oxidative stress. POP extracted from burbot liver oil from the two lakes was used to expose zebrafish (Danio rerio) during two consecutive generations. During both generations, POP mixtures from both lakes increased the rate of mortality, induced earlier onset of puberty, and skewed sex ratio toward males. However, opposite effects on weight gain were found in exposure groups compared to controls during the two generations. Exposure to POP from both lakes was associated with suppression of ovarian follicle development. Analyses of genome-wide transcription profiling identified functional networks of genes associated with weight homeostasis, steroid hormone functions, and insulin signaling. In human cell studies using adrenocortical H295R and primary porcine theca and granulosa cells, exposure to lake extracts from both populations modulated steroid hormone production with significant difference from controls. The results suggest that POP from both lakes may possess the potential to induce endocrine disruption and may adversely affect health in wild fish.

Abstract
Mycobacterium xenopi was isolated from the sputum of 21 patients with clinical signs of pulmonary disease and of 52 asymptomatic subjects living in the environment of a sludge pool. M. xenopi was cultured in high numbers from sludge samples. The infections were assumed to occur partly via dry sludge particles scattered by the wind in summer, and partly by sludge used as fertilizer.

Abstract
A 2-y nationwide survey of patients in Denmark with non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) cultures was undertaken. Patients were identified by means of records held at the International Reference Laboratory of Mycobacteriology, Statens Serum Institut, Denmark. The objectives were to identify isolated NTM to species level, to describe the incidence of the various species and to evaluate the clinical significance of pulmonary NTM isolates other than M. avium complex (MAC) and M. gordonae. Identification was performed by means of hybridization or sequencing of 16S rDNA. The clinical significance of pulmonary NTM isolates was evaluated by means of questionnaires concerning patients (was sent to the clinicians!) patients who had NTM isolated for the first time using bacteriologic, radiographic and clinical criteria. A total of 1110 specimens (2.1%) from 525 patients grew NTM. After MAC (n = 198) and M. gordonae (n = 168), most patients had M. abscessus (n = 21), M. malmoense (n = 20) and M. xenopi (n = 17) isolated. Of the pulmonary patients, 50.6% met bacteriologic criteria, 75.3% radiographic criteria and 53.4% clinical criteria for significant infection. Almost half of the pulmonary patients met all the criteria for significant NTM infection that could be evaluated. Clinically significant infection was associated with underlying disease in most patients.
