PositiveSingles.com survey found that the average personal cost is around $8,500 - $9,500 per year, which is higher than the results published by CDC on the 15th February 2013. Los Angeles California (PRWEB) February 23, 2014 PositiveSingles.com, the number one community for STD dating and support, randomly asked 10,000 of its members from the United States on Feb.20 to learn how much STD cost infected people for treatment per year. According to the results, the average personal cost is...

Novel simultaneous RNA-Seq analysis tracks host/pathogen interactions Investigators at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have developed a new technique that can track the activity of a disease-causing microbe and the host cell response to that pathogen simultaneously. Using the new method to examine Chlamydia trachomatis infection, the study team observed how the response of the infected cell contributes to one of the hallmark outcomes of...

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Chlamydia trachomatis is a human pathogen that is the leading cause of bacterial sexually transmitted disease worldwide with more than 90 million new cases of genital infections occurring each year. About 70 percent of women infected with Chlamydia remain asymptomatic and these bacteria can establish chronic infections for months, or even years. Even when it causes no symptoms, Chlamydia can damage a woman’s reproductive organs. In addition, standard antibacterial...

A recent study posted in Nature Genetics explains that researchers have found that Chlamydia has been evolving differently than previously thought. The researchers used whole genome sequencing to find these results. Their findings show the exchange of DNA between different strains of the STD to form new strains is more common than expected. The researchers came about their findings while working with hospitals to improve their testing and detection of Chlamydia, particularly different...

Whole genome analysis of Chlamydia trachomatis highlights risks with current method of tracking In a study released today in Nature Genetics, researchers have found that Chlamydia has evolved more actively than was previously thought. Using whole genome sequencing the researchers show that the exchange of DNA between different strains of Chlamydia to form new strains is much more common than expected. The team highlights that current clinical testing methods do not capture the variation...
