Rapid Diagnosis of AntibioticResistance in Gonorrhoea (RaDAR-Go)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to develop a laboratory-based assay that will be a real-time PCR test to detect the organism N. gonorrhoeae and its most important genetic markers of antimicrobial resistance. This study will also determine factors associated with gonorrhoea and describe sexual behaviours of men who have sex with men, to inform parameters for a mathematical model of gonorrhoea transmission and antimicrobialresistant gonorrhoea.
