Evaluation of a serologic test for gonorrhea in a low-risk female population.
South Med J. 1977 Mar; 70(3):316-9.SM

Abstract

This is a report of an evaluation of a new serologic test for gonorrhea--the Gonosticon Dri-Dot Test--as compared to the standard Thayer-Martin culturing technics in a low-risk female population. The Gonosticon Dri-Dot Test detected only 50% of the gonorrhea cases discovered by the conventional culture method. Furthermore, the serologic technic accounted for 17% false-positives, indicating that a reactive Gonosticon test is not necessarily consistent with active gonococcal infection. The efficacy of the Thayer-Martin culture plate diagnostic procedure for uncomplicated gonorrhea in women was reaffirmed by this study.
