Goal: Trichomonas vaginalis is the most common nonviral sexually transmitted infection in the United States and may be associated with adverse birth outcomes and may also increase susceptibility to or transmissibility of human immunodeficiency virus. The purpose of this analysis is to describe the epidemiology of T. vaginalis in Sexually Transmitted Disease clinics and characterize the risk factors associated with prevalent and incident T. vaginalis within the same population. Methods: We…

Prevalence and incidence of Trichomonas vaginalis infections in women participating in a clinical trial in Durban, South Africa

T vaginalis infection was found to be relatively high among this cohort of women and given the association of this infection with HIV, there is an evident need for T vaginalis screening and treatment in populations at risk for both infections.

TV distribution was high in the study population; its coexistence with HPV and other risk factors influenced parasite infection dynamics; the results suggested that routine TV detection should be considered regarding populations at risk of infection.

This study confirmed the relationship between T. vaginalis and multiple sexual partners and suggests that the risk for T. vaginais also may be related to life‐style risk factors.

Infection with Trichomonas vaginalis increases the risk of HIV-1 acquisition.

Treatment and prevention of T. vaginalis infection could reduce HIV-1 risk in women and may also help to reduce the overall risk of infection in women with HIV.

Demographic and Behavioral Predictors of Trichomonas vaginalis Infection Among Pregnant Women

Because many of the factors predictive of increased risk of colonization have also been shown to be associated with adverseregnancy outcome, they should be considered in assessing the association of T vaginalis with adverse pregnancy outcome.

Epidemiological studies on human trichomoniasis.

The importance of the sexual partner in the epidemiology of trichomoniasis was emphasized by culturing T. vaginalis from nearly half of the spouses of infected women who submitted to examination, and by the fact that three times as many single, divorced or widowed women in the series were cured of their trichomoiasis as were women living with their husbands.

This study confirmed, in the absence of reinfection, the continuing clinical effectiveness of single-dose metronidazole for the large majority of trichomoniasis cases and suggests that high-level resistance is uncommon.
