In a retrospective study of clinic records containing accurate information on the dates of infection and onset of symptoms, the mean (+/- SEM) incubation period of gonorrhea in men was 6.2 +/- 3.8 days and the mean duration of symptoms (3.1 +/- 2.3 days. For non-specific urethritis the mean (+/- SEM) figures were 7.7 +/- 4.1 and 4.0 +/- 3.4 days respectively; both were significantly longer than for gonorrhoea. Patients with a first episode of urethritis had longer than average incubation… Expand
Gonorrhoea in men: clinical and diagnostic aspects.
TLDR
The incubation and infectious period of urethral gonorrhoea has increased compared with previous studies and that symptoms have altered, suggesting that the features of gonococcal infection in men in the 1990s have changed. Expand
What proportion of episodes of gonorrhoea and chlamydia becomes symptomatic?
TLDR
Estimates show that the probability of recognizing symptoms in NG and CT episodes varies between settings, and in populations with low treatment rates like Uganda, these probabilities can be very low, so health education should have priority in STD management programmes. Expand
Gonorrhoea: Signs, Symptoms and Serogroups
TLDR
The serogroup of N. gonorrhoeae did not influence the amount of discharge, the presence of meatal inflammation, dysuria or penile tip irritation or the delay in presentation after appearance of discharge and Auxotype AHU was not associated with asymptomatic gonor rhoea. Expand
Factors associated with time to presentation for individuals with symptomatic uncomplicated genital gonorrhoea: a cross sectional cohort study of GToG trial participants
TLDR
Specific demographic and behavioural factors are associated with a longer TTP in individuals with symptomatic genital gonorrhoea and detailed knowledge of these factors can be used to prioritise and optimise gonor rhoea management and prevention. Expand
Experimental Gonococcal Urethritis and Reinfection with Homologous Gonococci in Male Volunteers
TLDR
The results suggest that immunity to reinfection is more complex than anticipated by the experimental design, and that experimental infection with Neisseria gonorrhoeae MS11mkC did not provide protection from reinfections under the conditions used. Expand
Human Immune Responses and the Natural History of Neisseria gonorrhoeae Infection
TLDR
The current body of knowledge pertaining to human immune responses to gonococcal infections and the role of these responses in mediating protection from N. gonorrhoeae is summarized. Expand
Painful swelling of the prepuce occurring during penile erection.
TLDR
A 13-year longitudinal analysis of risk factors and clinical visitation patterns of patients with repeated gonorrhea and implications for targeted sexually transmitted disease and HIV prevention strategies are analyzed. Expand
Vaccine Candidates for the Control and Prevention of the Sexually Transmitted Disease Gonorrhea
TLDR
The current progress towards the development of a gonorrhea vaccine is summed up and the clinical trials being undertaken in Australia to assess the efficacy of the current formulation of Bexsero® in controlling disease are described. Expand
Gonorrhoea Now
TLDR
The last 50 years have seen the introduction of effective chemotherapy and in this time the causative organism, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, has demonstrated remarkable powers of adaptation, which have included changing clinical features, patterns of transmission, and the development of chromosomally and plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance. Expand
Genital chlamydial infection: a role for social scientists.
TLDR
The author urges sociomedical researchers to explore the cultural, socioeconomic, and behavioral factors contributing to the current 'epidemic' of genital chlamydial infection, a sexually transmitted disease that is found worldwide and has now supplanted gonorrhea as the most common STD in the industrialized nations.

Minocycline in the treatment of non-gonococcal urethritis.
TLDR
Minocycline gives excellent results in the treatment of non-gonococcal urethritis and is therefore particularly useful in cases in which gonorrhoea is suspected but not found in the smears or in which the smear cannot be read immediately. Expand
Chlamydial infection of the urethra in men.
TLDR
A social profile is given of patients with urethritis and a comparison is made of the duration of symptoms and the nature of discharge in men with gonococcal, chlamydial, and non-specific ure arthritis, to show a clear difference in clinical symptoms in Men with gonorrhoea and NGU, taken as a whole, but found only a slight difference.

TLDR
Findings give further evidence for the aetiological role of C. trachomatis in non-specific urethritis and its sexual transmission. Expand
Chlamydial infection. Isolation of Chlamydia from patients with non-specific genital infection.
TLDR
It was clearly of interest to investigate the possibility that Chlamydia isolates could be obtained from men with NSU which was not associated with ocular infection, and the yolk-sac inoculation technique was used. Expand

In an earlier paper (Willcox, 1972), a series of pilot studies were reported involving 281 male patients with acute uncomplicated gonorrhoea principally treated with single doses of 0 5 to 2 g.Expand
Chlamydia trachomatis genital infections.
TLDR
Inflammatory and erosive changes were equally common in the uterine cervix of chlamydia-positive and chlam Lydia-negative women, although almost half of infected cases had no clinical signs of infection and no specific symptoms. Expand
Isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis from the male urethra.
TLDR
The chlamydial isolation rate was higher among men admitting a casual sexual contact than in men claiming only regular partnerships, providing further evidence for the sexual transmission of C. trachomatis and for its aetiological role in NSU. Expand

TLDR
Spectinomycin (Trobicin; actinospectacin), an antibiotic prepared from Streptomyces spectabilis, was first used in the treatment of gonorrhoea a decade or so ago and was found to be ineffective in nongonococcal urethritis. Expand
