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. RESULTS 14.64 % of males and 13.34 % of females were positive for gonococcal infection.3.57 % of males and 3.70 % of females were positive for Chlamydial infections. Burning micturition was common in males (NG-53.65 %, CT-80 %). In females genital discharge was common (NG-50 %, CT-50 %). CONCLUSION Urine specimens (M-16, F-15) was highly sensitive) in detecting gonococcal infections. In Chlamydial infections of males urine PCR was highly sensitive but in females, endocervical swab PCR was more sensitive.
