Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are caused by more than 30 different bacteria, viruses and parasites and are spread predominantly by unprotected sexual contact. Some STIs can also be transmitted during pregnancy and childbirth and through infected blood or blood products. According to the WHO, more than 1 million sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are acquired worldwide every day.
STIs have a profound impact on health. If untreated, they can lead to serious consequences, including neurological and cardiovascular disease, infertility, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirths, and increased risk of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Therefore, accurate diagnostic tests for STIs are especially useful for the diagnosis of asymptomatic infections. Daan Gene’s qualitative diagnostic kits for detecting the human DNA and RNA can help clinicians make the differential diagnosis of patients.
