Epub 2013 Mar 29. © Author(s) (or their employer(s)) 2020. Risk of bias was assessed using four quality domains. Epidemiology and treatment of penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Infertile populations were broadly defined to encompass women/men undergoing infertility evaluation or treatment (infertility clinic attendees and partners). The current decreases of gonorrhea incidence in the developed countries may not be maintained unless some success is attained in the control of gonorrhea in developing countries. 2011 Sep;52(9):589-97. doi: 10.4111/kju.2011.52.9.589. It mediates the exchange of genetic material between strains and attachment to human mucosal cell surface, invasion of host cells, and survival through the inhibition of phagocytosis. Infected men may experience pain or burning with urination, discharge from the penis, or testicular pain. last authored: July 2011, David LaPierre last reviewed: Nov 2011, Vidya Beharry Introduction. Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the gonococcus, is a non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacterium that appears under the microscope as a Gram-negative coccus occurring in pairs (diplococci) with flattening of the adjacent sides. Gonococci are adapted to growth on mucous membranes and cannot tolerate drying. The epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Europe. Symptomatic gonorrhea results in urethritis in males and cervicitis in females. … Metaregression identified evidence of variations in prevalence by region and by infertility diagnosis, higher prevalence in women than men and a small-study effect.  |  3. Korean J Urol. LeBlanc EL, Patnode CD, Webber EM, Redmond N, Rushkin M, O’Connor EA. There was a trend of declining prevalence by about 3% per year over the last four decades (OR=0.97, 95% CI 0.95 to 0.99). Global epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae in infertile populations: systematic review, meta-analysis and metaregression Sex Transm Infect . Methods: Isolates from 16 242 gonorrhoea episodes at sexual health clinics within the Gonococcal Resistance to Antimicrobials Surveillance Programme (GRASP) underwent antimicrobial susceptibility testing.

Sex Transm Infect. Conclusions: 1. Introduction. HHS Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Chapter 307) is a common cause of polyarthralgias and arthritis as well as oligoarticular arthritis and tenosynovitis in young, healthy patients. In the United States, it is the second most commonly reported communicable disease, with more than 350,000 cases reported annually. Disseminated gonococcal infection occurs in 0.5 to 3% of patients with gonorrhea (Chapter 307). Prospero registration number: Background.
