Abstract: A STUDY ON THE PREVALENCE OF CHLAMYDIA TRACHOMATIS AND NEISSERIA GONORRHOEAE INFECTIONS USING POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION INTRODUCTION The Amplicor Chlamydia trachomatis / Neisseria gonorrhoeae (CT /NG) test is a qualitative in vitro test for the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Gonococcal infection. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To study the prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections, in 280 males and 270 Non-Pregnant females who has not taken antibiotics four weeks prior to examination attending the OPD of Institute of Venereology, from March 1, 2007 to February 29, 2008.

Burning micturition was common in males (NG-53.65 %, CT-80 %). In females genital discharge was common (NG-50 %, CT-50 %).
