According to a research led by Johns Hopkins Medicine, the world's most common curable STI, Trichomonas vaginalis
(TV), disproportionately affects the black community.
Sexually transmitted infections are a more common etiologic agent of cervicitis and may be caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis
, herpes simplex virus (HSV), or human papilloma virus (HPV).
The groups were well balanced, with similar clinical presentations and prevalence of chlamydia (15%), gonorrhea (7%), Mycoplasma genitalium (18%), bacterial vaginosis (55%) and Trichomonas vaginalis
cases presenting at the Komfo Anokye teaching hospital, Ghana over a period of 11 years: 1994 to 2004.
or Trichomonas vaginalis
, which when combined account for more than 90 percent of cases.
The common etiologies are bacterial vaginosis (BV), Trichomonas vaginalis
(TV), and candidiasis (CVV).
The update included specific changes related to the diagnosis and treatment of Trichomonas vaginalis
This Solana Trichomonas assay is used for the detection of nucleic acids isolated from clinician-collected vaginal swabs and female urine specimens obtained from symptomatic or asymptomatic females to aid in the diagnosis of trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted disease attributable to infection from the Trichomonas vaginalis
parasite, added the company.
In Figures 7(a)-7(d) of the published article titled "[alpha]-Actinin TVACTN3 of Trichomonas vaginalis
Is an RNA-Binding Protein That Could Participate in Its Posttranscriptional Iron Regulatory Mechanism" , we mistakenly used the same strip data in panel (a), lanes 3 and 4; panel (b), lanes 3 and 4; panel (c), lanes 2 and 4; and panel (d), lanes 2 and 3.
is one the most prevalent nonviral sexually transmitted pathogens with an estimate of 170 million new infections per year (4).
The swabs were placed in separate transport medium and were tested separately with NAAT for four organisms: Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis
, and Mycoplasma genitalium.
Market launch will start out with a device for the diagnosis and screening of the sexually transmitted infection Chlamydia trachomatis followed by a multifunctional device including additionally Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Trichomonas vaginalis
