Some Diagnostic Aspects Of Chlamydia Trachomatis Urogenital Infections

Some Diagnostic Aspects Of Chlamydia Trachomatis Urogenital Infections

Akusherstvo i Ginekologiia 54(8): 8-12

The following tests were used to make the diagnosis of Chlamydia Trachomatis: Ensime Immunoassay (EIA), Enzyme-Linked FluorescentAssay (ELFA), Polymerase Chain Reaction DNA amplification for Chlamydia Trachomatis, Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma Genitalium and Ureaplasma Urealyticum. The subject of this study were 486 outpatients between the ages of 17 and 62, diagnosed with urethritis, epidydimitis, prostatitis, cervicitis, endocervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease and sterility. Comparison PCR and EIA showed statistically significant difference between the positive results obtained by the two methods (p<0.001). Comparing PCR and ELFA on the other hand, did not show any statistically significant difference (p>0.1). EIA is the method that gives a higher percentage of nonspecific positive reactions, while the results obtained with ELFA are much closer to the ones obtained by PCR. According to contemporary evidence based medicine, the development of unified standart methods for diagnosis and evaluation is of vital importance, not only for the patient and the treating physician but also concerns for the healthcare system, the general public and the pharmaceutical companies as well.
