  Purpose

The hypothesis to be tested in this trial is that the different epidemiologic (including racial differences) and phenotypic manifestations exhibited by Trichomonas clinical isolates during infection are correlated with their genotypic strain classification. Two specific aims are proposed to test that hypothesis. Specific aim 1. Assess the significance of genotypic or phenotypic differences in the Trichomonas strains among African American women by HIV status. Specific aim 2. Determine the significance of genotypic or phenotypic differences in the Trichomonas strains circulating among women from two different racial groups, African American women and Caucasian women. The overall goals of these specific aims are to identify racial differences in the genotypic and phenotypic characteristics of Trichomonas strains, and to develop the ability to identify and classify Trichomonas infections in order to prioritize treatment and epidemiologic follow-up of individuals infected with isolates associated with adverse clinical outcomes (HIV transmission or acquisition, pregnancy complications, virulence, or drug resistance).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation of Trichomonas genotype with clinical symptoms, HIV status and patient race. [ Time Frame: Single visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Trichomonas vaginalis isolates will be genotyped using Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and the isolate genotypes will be assessed for correlations with clinical manifestations, drug resistance, HIV status, and demographic patient information.
