"Co-occurrence of free-living amoebae and non-tuberculous mycobacteria in hospital water networks, and preferential growth of Mycobacterium avium in Acanthamoeba lenticulata" This study used water samples from a hospital and contains an intriguing clue as to how and why NTM resists disinfectants and antibiotics. Ultimately, it may have important consequences regarding drinking water networks.
