The evaluation and risk assessment of sexually transmitted disease in Korean adolescents at risk
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:38 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: There have been little researches of sexually transmitted infection (STI) for adolescent at risk in Korea and these studies were just for prevalence limited to Chlamydia trichomonas and Neisseria gonorrheae. We explored prevalences and risk factors of 10 pathogens of STI at risk adolescent. Through conducting treatment model, we aim to develop a substantial management plan.

In vitro activity of different 5-nitroimidazole derivatives and essential oils against Trichomonas vaginalis
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:36 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Trichomoniasis is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by Trichomonas vaginalis. Treatment of trichomoniais is usually achieved by 5-nitroimidazole derivatives. But some resistant strains to treatment failures of metronidazole have been reported and also numerous side effects, so it is continuing the search for alternative treatments. We evaluated in vitro effective concentrations of different 5-nitroimidazole derivatives and essential oils against T. vaginalis (Source: International Journal of Infectious Diseases)

ITS Typing, a potent genetic tool for discrimination of Trichomonas vaginalis isolates
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:36 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Genetic variability, virulence factors and drug resistance mechanisms of Trichomonas vaginalis are poorly understood issues about the parasite. The aim of this study was to determine internal transcribed spacer (ITS) types of available T. vaginalis ITS sequences in Genbank and to compare with ITS types of T. vaginalis isolates from Aydin, Turkey.

Influence of 120 kDa Pyruvate:Ferredoxin Oxidoreductase on Pathogenicity of Trichomonas vaginalis.
Thu, 10 Mar 2016 18:29:02 +0100 | Korean Journal of Parasitology
In this study, the author investigated whether the 120 kDa protein of T. vaginalis may be involved in pathogenicity of trichomonads. Antibodies against 120 kDa protein of T. vaginalis, which was identified as pyruvate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (PFOR) by peptide analysis of MALDI-TOF-MS, were prepared in rabbits. Pretreatment of T. vaginalis with anti-120 kDa Ab decreased the proliferation and adherence to vaginal epithelial cells (MS74) of T. vaginalis. Subcutaneous tissue abscess in anti-120 kDa Ab-treated T. vaginalis-injected mice was smaller in size than that of untreated T. vaginalis-infected mice. Collectively, the 120 kDa protein expressed by iron may be involved in proliferation, adhesion to host cells, and abscess formation, thereby may influence on the pathogenicity of T. vaginal...

Prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis in Women Visiting 2 Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics in Daegu, South Korea.
Thu, 10 Mar 2016 18:29:02 +0100 | Korean Journal of Parasitology
This study explored epidemiological trends in trichomoniasis in Daegu, South Korea. Wet mount microscopy, PCR, and multiplex PCR were used to test for Trichomonas vaginalis in vaginal swab samples obtained from 621 women visiting 2 clinics in Daegu. Of the 621 women tested, microscopy detected T. vaginalis in 4 (0.6%) patients, PCR detected T. vaginalis in 19 (3.0%) patients, and multiplex PCR detected T. vaginalis in 12 (1.9%) patients. Testing via PCR demonstrated high sensitivity and high negative predictive value for T. vaginalis. Among the 19 women who tested positive for T. vaginalis according to PCR, 94.7% (18/19) reported vaginal signs and symptoms. Notably, more than 50% of T. vaginalis infections occurred in females younger than 30 years old, and 58% were unmarried. Multiplex PCR...
