Chlamydia trachomatis is known to be a cause of acute non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU), though the aetiology of this disorder is not fully understood. Mycoplasma genitalium has been isolated from a few men with NGU, but culture has remained difficult and reliable detection became possible only with a specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We have used the(More)
One hundred fourteen heterosexual men with acute nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) and 64 patients without NGU were studied. We determined that Chlamydia trachomatis and Mycoplasma genitalium were strongly associated with acute NGU after controlling, by means of multivariate analysis, for age, race, sexual lifestyle, and coinfection (odds ratio [OR], 13.0, 95%(More)
In 1986, Chlamydia trachomatis elementary bodies were found by direct immunofluorescence (DIF) in synovial-fluid cell deposits and synovial-membrane biopsy samples from five of eight patients with sexually acquired reactive arthritis (SARA) but in none of eight controls with other types of arthritis. Cells from the original slides (stored at 4 degrees C)(More)
Ninety male patients with acute nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) who presented for follow-up 10-92 days after initiation of treatment were evaluated. A polymerase chain reaction assay and direct fluorescence antibody test were used to detect Chlamydia trachomatis at presentation and during follow-up. Chlamydial heat-shock protein 60 kD (hsp60) serology with(More)
Mycoplasmas have been suggested as a co-factor to explain various puzzling features of infection by human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1). We sought Mycoplasma fermentans by means of a semi-nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in samples of peripheral-blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), throat swabs, and urine samples from 117 HIV-seropositive patients (of(More)
Chlamydia trachomatis was sought at first and subsequent clinic visits in urethral swabs and urines from 112 heterosexual men with acute non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU). In comparison with a urethral swab tested by Micro Trak (MT), a urine deposit tested in the same way was 90% as sensitive. Examining a urine deposit by the enzyme immunoassay IDEIA was a(More)
