The high zinc concentration (2.3-15.3 mM) in human prostatic secretions may be an important defense of the male lower urinary tract against infection by Trichomonas vaginalis. Trichomonads wereExpand
Trichomonacidal activity of human polymorphonuclear neutrophils: killing by disruption and fragmentation.
Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) were shown to kill Trichomonas vaginalis in vitro; 10(2)-10(3) trichomonads were incubated with 3 x 10(6) PMNs on tissue culture plates, and surviving organismsExpand
Accuracy of Gram's stain in identifying pneumococci in sputum.
We prospectively examined the accuracy of Gram-stained sputum for identifying pneumococci in 42 patients with community-acquired pneumonia. We considered the Gram's stain positive if a preponderantExpand

A previously healthy, 26-year-old heterosexual man experienced necrotic penile ulcerations with fever, rigors, and difficulty voiding. Urethral instrumentation and treatment with antibiotics wereExpand
Treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis with boric acid powder.
A double-blind comparison was made of the use of 14 daily intravaginal gelatin capsules containing 600 mg of boric acid powder versus the use of identical capsules containing 100,000 U nystatinExpand
