Welcome to the ESGMAC MAPS (Mycoplasma pneumoniae Surveillance) study home page

Background to the study

After the publication of the 1st MyCOVID survey (2017-2021) and 2nd MyCOVID survey (2021-2022), we would like to announce our following project: The ESGMAC MAPSstudy.


With this project we aim to prospectively collect and report M. pneumoniae detection data from across the globe with an aim of identifying where and when M. pneumoniae infections make a resurgence following its absence during the COVID-19 pandemic. 


We plan to collate data on a monthly basis, and if possible, also ask collaborators to retain isolates and/or DNA from the local sites for future typing to monitor and characterize the resurgence of M. pneumoniae from a global perspective.


If you are interested in contributing to this ongoing surveillance project, or would like to find out more, please contact either Patrick Meyer Sauteur (Patrick.MeyerSauteur[at]kispi.uzh.ch) or Mike Beeton (mbeeton[at]cardiffmet.ac.uk)
