Although it is now evident that human papillomaviruses (HPV) are strongly associated with cervical cancer, their etiological role in the oncogenesis of this disease is still unknown. However, HPV screening may identify women at risk of acquiring this disease. With the recent development of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), it has become possible to(More)
Sequences derived from the endogenous plasmid ofChlamydia trachomatis and from the genes coding for ribosomal 16S RNA ofChlamydia psittaci were used as primers and oligonucleotide probes for detection of chlamydiae by the polymerase chain reaction. The endogenous plasmid primers generated specific amplified products of 517 bp with all knownChlamydia(More)
The diagnostic value of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in comparison with that of the culture technique was established in a follow-up study of 32 patients (81 samples) who were treated for a C. trachomatis infection. The PCR was performed with two different sets of primers, a genus-specific primer set directed(More)
