Gonorrhoea, caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae
and first identified in 1879 by Albert Neisser (1855-1916), is one of the oldest infections known to man and is efficiently spread through unprotected sexual intercourse.
Inhibition of Neisseria gonorrhoeae
by aerobic and facultatively anaerobic components of the endocervical flora: evidence for a protective effect against infection.
Carraguard is a large molecule, which appears to coat both the pathogen and the vagina; in vitro and animal studies suggest that it blocks infection with HIV, herpes simplex virus type 2, human papillomavirus and Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Evaluation of the PACE 2 Neisseria gonorrhoeae
assay by three public health laboratories.
The ACCURUN 341 Nucleic Acid Positive controls for CT/NG are derived from cultured Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae
and closely simulate an actual patient sample, challenging every stage of the assay from sample extraction through amplification and detection.
Implementation of a rapid genotypic assay to promote targeted ciprofloxacin therapy of Neisseria gonorrhoeae
in a large health system.
When performed on the molecular platform, the BD ProbeTec Qx tests utilise BD's ferric oxide, FOX Extraction, as well as Strand Displacement Amplification technologies to directly and qualitatively identify Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae
isolates with high minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) to azithromycin, defined as MIC >8 jug/mL, have been reported worldwide, including in the United States.
GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN - Neisseria gonorrhoeae
strains are showing a worrisome drift in susceptibility to cephalosporins, causing experts to warn that the bacterium is only a step away from acquiring high-level resistance that would render ineffective the current first-line antimicrobials.
ACCURUN portfolio has been developed to monitor and validate molecular diagnostic test performance for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Contract notice: Supply of analysis equipment for detection of chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae
and mycoplasma genitalia with associated equipment-dependent consumer goods
The emergence of untreatable Neisseria gonorrhoeae
infections has caused great concern.
SAN DIEGO -- Ciprofloxacin cured 100% of gyrase A wild-type Neisseria gonorrhoeae
infections, and physicians prescribed it significantly more frequently when they received electronic reminders of test results and recommendations, in a single-center study.
, the causative pathogen of gonorrhea, has been designated an urgent antimicrobial drug resistance threat by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (1).
Closthioamide was first discovered in 2010 and has since been tested against samples of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae
bacterium that cause the disease.
