Preterm premature rupture of membranes
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
Association of Mycoplasma genitalium with acute non-gonococcal urethritis
The rôle of Chlamydia trachomatis in genital-tract and associated diseases.
Because the organisms from the eye and genital tract could not easily be distinguished, and because the eye disease associated with them formed a continuous spectrum ranging in severity from inclusion conjunctivitis to trachoma, the expression 'TRIC agents' was used for these organisms.
