@cmcclure I don't know of such a book. Most of the information cited here is from studies and monographs published by nih or teaching and research universities or hospitals around the world. MAC is part of the family of non-tubercular mycobacteria (NTM) so perhaps you can find something through a search for it. Since the study and treatment of MAC is an ever-changing medical practice, I'm not sure any textbooks have been published. Have you sought help at a medical school library near you?
Also, this forum is primarily patient-centered, so your post may not be reaching the physicians and practitioners you seek.
@colleenyoung Can you suggest another search avenue for this information?
