Context Can nucleic acid amplification tests on urine samples replace cervical and urethral samples to screen for chlamydia and gonorrhea? Contribution Pooled data from 29 studies showed that 3 commercially available nucleic acid amplification tests had high specificity (>95%) for detecting chlamydia and gonorrhea. Sensitivity was reasonably high (approximately 80% to 93%), except for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for gonococcal infections in women (approximately 56%). Limitations Few studies… CONTINUE READING
