A recently published paper issues a challenge to the health and scientific community:
“Despite drug resistance being documented for decades, 5-Nitroimidazoles remain the only treatment option"
“Trichomoniasis is the most common, non-viral sexually transmitted infection worldwide, accounting for Quarter billion cases each year”Read More ►
While parasite colonization is inhibited by protective lactobacilli in the vaginal microbiota, T. vaginalis and the bacteria causing bacterial vaginosis amplify disease synergistically.
5-Nitromidazole treatment of trichomoniasis neither eliminates Mycoplasma nor counteracts the vaginal microbiome disturbances; hence novel therapies are necessary.
Metabolic interactions with Mycoplasma enhance the growth and weaken the macrophage-mediated killing of T. vaginalis.
InPouch® TV is a cost-effective, easy to use, broth media device for combined collection, incubation, and detection.
Biomed's Diagnostics' Gold Standard media for T. vaginalis within InPouch TV is formulated for specificity — inhibiting the growth of yeasts, molds, bacteria and other micro-flora.Request a Sample ►
