Description

Herpes - sores on male sex organ Genital herpes

The signs of herpes appear about 2-10 days after sexual contact with an infected person.

These include:

  • itching/burning-feeling in the genital area
  • water blisters (vesicles) or open sores
  • discharge of fluid from the vagina.
Herpes sores heal after 3-4 days but often recur. Treatment relieves pain and discomfort but cannot prevent recurrence. A woman with herpes may infect her newborn at childbirth causing blindness or mental retardation.

A novel approach for evaluating the performance of real time quantitative loop-mediated isothermal amplification-based methods
Sat, 22 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Biomolecular Detection and Quantification
This study uses a sexually transmitted infection diagnostic model in combination with an adapted metric termed isothermal doubling time (IDT), akin to PCR efficiency, to compare quantitative PCR and quantitative loop-mediated isothermal amplification (qLAMP) assays, and to quantify the impact of matrix interference. The performance metric described here facilitates the comparison of qLAMP assays that could assist assay development and validation activities. (Source: Biomolecular Detection and Quantification)

Understanding the Presence of False-Positive Antibodies in Acute Hepatitis
Sat, 22 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Journal of Infectious Diseases
Although false-positive antibodies (FPAs) have been well described in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV), this has not been evaluated in acute viral hepatitis. Patients with acute viral hepatitis underwent antibody testing for other causes of liver disease and sexually transmitted diseases. Those with antibody positivity underwent confirmatory testing and monitoring. Patients with FPAs were compared with patients with acute hepatitis C infection without FPAs. In total 7 of 24 patients (29%) had FPAs. FPAs during acute viral hepatitis are associated with higher IgM levels and higher ESR in acute HCV. This has both mechanistic and clinical implications and should be evaluated further. (Source: The Journal of Infectious Diseases)
