Title: New point-of-care Chlamydia test comparable to PCR
Author: Rowland, Kate
Date: 2008-12
Publisher: Family Physicians Inquiries Network
Citation: Evidence Based Practice 11(12): 01-02.
Abstract: More than 1 million cases of genital Chlamydia trachomatis infection were diagnosed in the United States in 2006, making it the most common sexually transmitted infection. Most of these diagnoses were in young women: females aged 15 to 19 have the highest diagnosis rate, followed by women aged 20 to 24. However, many patients with Chlamydia have no symptoms, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 1.8 million additional cases of Chlamydia remain undetected. The CDC recommends routine screening for asymptomatic Chlamydia infection in women younger than 26 years.
