STI co-endemicity and the role of point of care tests for resistance guided therapy
This seminar will discuss the outcomes of the ‘Precise’ study, which aimed to develop point of care antimicrobial resistance tests for Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Mycoplasma genitalium infection to ensure accurate resistance guided therapy and antibiotic stewardship in sexual health medicine. Claire will also present data from a sub-study looking at STI co-infections, macrolide resistance and risk factors associated with MG infection from London based symptomatic clinic attendees.
