Evaluation of Syva's enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in urogenital specimens.
A newly developed microwell enzyme immunosorbent assay (EIA) system by Syva Company can detect Chlamydia trachomatis in < 3 hr and has a performance profile that is, at the very least, comparable with other nonculture methods for diagnosing genital tract infections with C. trachmatis.
[Usefulness of the gonozyme (Abbott) test in the diagnosis of gonorrhea in prostitutes].
Gonozyme was highly useful in the examinations of prostitutes in view of its importance and the fact that the gonococcal antigen can be detected also when the result of culture was negative due to antibiotic taking.

Findings suggest that DFA in males, which is only slightly less sensitive than LCR, should be recommended and sex-partners of these men, symptomatic and asymptomatic, even with negative DFA-cervix should be given prophylactic treatment.
