Randomised controlled trial of screening for Chlamydia trachomatis to prevent pelvic inflammatory disease: the POPI (prevention of pelvic infection) trial
Although some evidence suggests that screening for chlamYDial infection reduces rates of pelvic inflammatory disease, especially in women with chlamydial infection at baseline, the effectiveness of a single chlamydia test in preventing pelvicinflammatory disease over 12 months may have been overestimated.

Mycoplasma genitalium: from Chrysalis to Multicolored Butterfly
The history, replication, genetics, characteristics, and factors involved in the pathogenesis of Mycoplasma genitalium are presented, including adhesion, the influence of hormones, motility, possible toxin production, and immunological responses. Expand
Preterm premature rupture of membranes
The management of patients with premature rupture of membranes has changed markedly in the past several years, with the recognition that an active observation management program is associated with less morbidity and mortality than the classic management course of delivery within 12 hours of membrane rupture. Expand
Abnormal bacterial colonisation of the genital tract and subsequent preterm delivery and late miscarriage
Late miscarriage and pre term delivery are associated with the presence of bacterial vaginosis in early pregnancy, independent of recognised risk factors such as previous preterm delivery. Expand
Immunological events in regressing genital warts.
The changes in regression are consistent with a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to foreign antigen, and the ability to induce and mount such a response may be a critical determinant of effective natural immunity to the genital HPVs. Expand
Is Mycoplasma genitalium in women the "New Chlamydia?" A community-based prospective cohort study.
In conclusion, M. genitalium infection is unlikely to be a major risk factor for clinical pelvic inflammatory disease in this population of female students and genotyping results suggest that these were persistent infections. Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium, a new species from the human urogenital tract.
It is proposed that mycoplasmas with these characteristics belong to a new species, Mycoplasma genitalium, and G-37 (= ATCC 33530) is the type strain. Expand
Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis DNA in joints of reactive arthritis patients by polymerase chain reaction
Cells from the original slides have been examined by a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) that amplifies DNA for the major outer membrane protein of C trachomatis and support the previous finding of chlamydiae in joints in reactive arthritis. Expand
Association of Mycoplasma genitalium with acute non-gonococcal urethritis
It is suggested that the association of M genitalium with NGU is likely to be causal, a notion consistent with the known virulence characteristics of this microorganism and its ability to cause urethritis in male sub-human primates. Expand

The determination that a mycoplasma is a cause of disease in patients or animals should be based on the following factors: the isolation rate among patients orAnimals with disease is significantly greater than that among those without disease. Expand
