Extended Data Fig. 1: Determination of MAC sputum counts.

From: Potent antibody-mediated neutralization limits bacteriophage treatment of a pulmonary Mycobacterium abscessus infection

Extended Data Fig. 1

Quantitative MAC counts in expectorated sputum (log CFU mL−1) pre- and post-treatment. The observed decline in MAC treatment during phage therapy is likely attributable to the addition of anti-MAC antibiotics, azithromycin and ethambutol, to the multidrug regimen. MAC colony morphology appeared smooth and opaque.
