Virulence attributes of low-virulence organisms

Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Abstract

The vast majority of infections involving female pelvic structures arise from organisms that are members of the normal flora. In addition, exogenous organisms that invade through the lower genital tract must interact with organisms that are part of the host's flora. In contrast to the c...read more

Pelvic inflammatory disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the female reproductive organs. igns and symptoms, when present, may include lower abdominal pain, vaginal discharge, fever, burning with urination, pain with sex, bleeding after sex, or irregular menstruation. Untreated PID can result in long-term complications including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, chronic pelvic pain, and cancer. Discover the latest research on PID here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Virulence Factors

Virulence factors are molecules that are produced by organisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They assist the organism in colonization, dissemination, and enhance the ability to survive in harsh environments and evade the host immune system. Discover the latest research on virulence factors here.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a common bacterial infection caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a gram-negative diplococcus that is transmitted almost exclusively by sexual contact or perinatally. Here is the latest research.

Candidiasis

Candidiasis is a common fungal infection caused by Candida and it can affect many parts for the body including mucosal membranes as well as the gastrointestinal, urinary, and respiratory tracts. Here is the latest research.
