 en RESEARCH NOTE - Detection of Anti-pili Antibodies of Gonococcus Using an Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
Jorge Sosa; Alina Llop & Erenia Barrero


Neisseria gonorrhoeae genital infection are an important cause of morbidity and infertility in the Caribbean. The frequent lack of obvious symptoms in persons affected by this pathogen is a major reason for introducing screening programs for its detection. Most significantly, a high prevalence of infection with N. gonorrhoeae has been observed in females presenting tubal infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic inflammatory disease (A Miettinen et al. 1990 Sex Transm Dis 17:10-4), indicating that N. gonorrhoeae infection is a risk factor for these conditions.
