Study Detail

TitleVaginal metatranscriptome of bacterial mRNA from healthy and BV volunteers
Study TypeOther
Abstract Bacterial vaginosis (BV) increases transmission of HIV, enhances the risk of preterm labour, and is associated with malodour. Clinical diagnosis often relies on microscopy to give a Nugent score, which provides a low-resolution examination of the microbial composition. We conducted a metatranscripto .. [more]
