Genetic variability between Trichomonas vaginalis isolates and correlation with clinical presentation.


The random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was used to determine genetic differences among isolates of Trichomonas vaginalis and these genetic data were correlated with patient records. A panel of 10 random primers was used to determine the type and extent of intraspecific polymorphism in 40 isolates of T. vaginalis. All primers detected DNA… (More)
