Comparison of APTIMA Trichomonas vaginalis transcription-mediated amplification to wet mount microscopy, culture, and polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis of trichomoniasis in men and women.
TLDR
ATV TMA provides a sensitive, commercially available nucleic acid amplification test for improved diagnosis of TV in male and female patients.
Trichomonas vaginalis infection in male sexual partners: implications for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
TLDR
The majority of male partners of women with trichomoniasis were infected; however, few factors predicted infection, necessitating vastly improved partner management, application of sensitive nucleic-acid based testing, and better clinical recognition.
Daily temporal dynamics of vaginal microbiota before, during and after episodes of bacterial vaginosis
TLDR
This unique resource of samples and data will contribute to a better understanding of the role that the vaginal microbes have in the natural history of BV and lead to improved diagnosis and treatment.
Longitudinal Association Between Hormonal Contraceptives and Bacterial Vaginosis in Women of Reproductive Age
TLDR
There was a decreased risk of overall BV prevalence among oral contraceptive users and among those using hormonal injection/implant and less remission occurred among those subjects who had tubal ligation.
Re-evaluating the treatment of nongonococcal urethritis: emphasizing emerging pathogens--a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Addition of tinidazole to the treatment regimen did not result in higher cure rates but effectively eradicated trichomonas, and doxycycline had significantly better efficacy against Chlamydia, whereas azithromycin was superior to doxy cycline for the treatment of M. genitalium.
Prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis Isolates with Resistance to Metronidazole and Tinidazole
TLDR
Clinical isolates of Trichomonas vaginalis were obtained from women consecutively enrolled in a study of partner notification and in vitro resistance was poorly correlated with clinical response to treatment.
Detection of Trichomonosis in Vaginal and Urine Specimens from Women by Culture and PCR
TLDR
Results indicate that the exclusive use of urine-based detection of T. vaginalis is not appropriate in women, and PCR- based detection of the organisms in the urine using vaginal specimens may provide an alternative to culture.
Bacterial vaginosis assessed by gram stain and diminished colonization resistance to incident gonococcal, chlamydial, and trichomonal genital infection.
TLDR
BV microbiota as gauged by Gram stain is associated with a significantly elevated risk for acquisition of trichomonal, gonococcal, and/or chlamydial genital infection.
Suppressive antibacterial therapy with 0.75% metronidazole vaginal gel to prevent recurrent bacterial vaginosis.
TLDR
Suppressive therapy with twice-weekly metronidazole gel achieves a significant reduction in the recurrence rate of bacterial vaginosis; however, secondary vaginal candidiasis is common.
Local and systemic cytokine levels in relation to changes in vaginal flora.
TLDR
It is possible that the risks associated with BV may also affect women with intermediate flora and that appropriate treatment may reduce such risk.
