Cases of Chlamydia on the rise once again
However, little input has been employed in treatment of Mgen related disease since it is often misdiagnosed as Chlamydia and thus higher chances of its development to a “superbug”. Studies reveal too that Mgen may also mutate to a superbug within a period of 10 years. These bacteria are approximated to be found in between 1-2% of infected men and women with no symptoms presented. Some symptoms may be observed in patients, but they are often mistaken for other STIs including Chlamydia. The disease caused by Mgen may sometimes be misdiagnosed and treated for Chlamydia since there do not exist commercial diagnostic tests for Mgen like those for chlamydia.
Gender differences in the infection of STIs
An approximate estimate reveals that 78 million people are infected with this infection caused by Neisseria gonorrhea as at the WHO statistics. This study reveals that the men show pronounced signs of infection. Gender features are of significant in this study since the symptoms are better identifiable in males and according to the research by scientists from Tufts University School of Medicine shows that there are gender specific signals in infection and resistance genes to antibiotics after conducting their study and comparing the gonococcal gene expression and its regulation in both genders.
Alzheimer’s disease and herpes strain linked
However, experts gave hope that people should not worry since this disease is not caused by herpes viruses. Scientists are yet to identify the exact cause for this disease although genetics, lifestyles and environmental factors could contribute as well as the observed herpes condition in the brain. Another study published in the Neuron journal revealed that people with Alzheimer’s diseases had higher levels of herpes strains 6A and 7. These strains do not cause genital herpes and cold sores but rather causes roseola in children. However, with advanced studies it would be possible to know those at risk of attack and the suitable treatment methods.
The county records exorbitant rates of STIs
