  • Chlamydia causes diseases of the urogenital tract
    Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STD), that caused by Chlamydia trachomatis which is a unique organism. Chlamydiae live inside the living cell as viruses, but their structure is similar to the bacteria. Because of the dual nature of Chlamydiae and the ability to parasitize intracellularly chlamydia is extremely difficult to cure. According to WHO, chlamydia is one of the most common STD worldwide.

The latest figures show a drop in some STDs among the youth, which is heartening but does n....

  • Take-home Chlamydia Tests Tied to More Screening
    (Reuters Health) - Women at risk for chlamydia infections are more likely to get tested if they can do it at home instead of going to a clinic, suggests new research. The study participants had all previously tested positive for chlamydia and were treated for the sexually-transmitted disease. But guidelines recommend women get tested again, three months after treatment, because its easy to re-catch the infection from a partner who hasnt been treated. Once youve had an infection, that....

  • Why Is It so Difficult to Cure Diseases Caused by Infections of Mycoplasma Urealytium Thoroughly?
    Mycoplasma Urealytium (MU) is a kind of non-gonococcal bacteria and the main causative agent that causes non-gonococcal urethritis and many other diseases at equal pace. For the male, MU would also induce prostatitis, epididymitis, male infertility and the like, while for the female, it could cause salpingitis, abortion, dead birth, premature delivery, postpartum fever, female infertility, etc. Therefore, it can clearly be seen that infections of MU are of serious harmfulness, and clinically it....

  • Chlamydia Findings Could Yield New Therapeutic Approaches That Might Turn A Natural Infection Into A
    Researchers at Duke University Medical Center have discovered a way to block the damaging actions of Chlamydia, the bacteria responsible for the largest number of sexually transmitted infections in the United States. The team, which included Duke University microbiologists and chemists, designed a molecule that takes away the bacterias self-defense mechanisms. The therapies that could come from this discovery mark a new type of antimicrobial approach. Instead of directly killing the bacter....

  • High risk of STDs found in Maricopa County jails
    After years of research, a robust picture has started to emerge about Maricopa County inmates. More than 30 percent tested positive for marijuana or methamphetamine, nearly 30 percent have been told by a professional that they suffer from a mental illness, and they are 50 to 80 percent more likely to be infected with gonorrhea than the general population, according to a new study. The trick now is figuring out what to do with the data Arizona State University researchers are developing on Mari....

  • My Views on Traditional Chinese Medicine
    By Lee Xiaoping It’s about 30 years since I obtained a qualification certificate for practicing TCM, and my clinic has been opened for over 20 years. Basic theories of TCM are the stepping stone for each generation of disciples of TCM to enter this domain, and each doctor of TCM may have his own system as to how to apply medical knowledge and what medicine to use in clinical treatment of diseases. This is the fact I’m increasingly aware of as I’m more and more experienced in TCM. Basic theor....

  • How Does Chlamydia Cause Infertility in Women?
    Chlamydia is a genus of prokaryotic organisms that parasitizes cells of living being to intake necessary energy for survival and of which some certain kinds, such as Chlamydia trachomatis, one of the most common causative agents, could infect human body and then induce diseases. And, if the reproductive system of human body is infected by it, it is possible to cause infertility. Relatively, it is harder to find out Chlamydia infection of the female than that of the male so that the harmfulness....

  • Drug-resistant STD prompts global warning
    A prostitute in Japan who developed a strain of drug-resistant gonorrhoea in her throat has triggered a worldwide alert about the spread of untreatable sexually transmitted diseases. The woman, from Kyoto, was found to be infected with a new strain, HO41, which is resistant to almost all antibiotics. The research team that made the discovery said the strain was likely to transform a common and once easily treatable infection into a global threat to public health. The findings were presented....
