Abstract
BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS, OR NONSPECIFIC VAGINITIS, AND TRICHOMONAL VAGINITIS ARE TWO EXTREMELY COMMON FORMS OF INFECTIOUS VAGINITIS. BOTH ARE READILY TREATABLE, BUT RECURRENCES ARE COMMON. SIMPLE, PRESUMPTIVE SCREENING TESTSARE NOT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE, AND DIAGNOSIS IS OFTEN MADE ON THE BASIS OF SUBJECTIVE CLINICAL FINDINGS. THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A SIMPLE, INEXPENSIVE, COLORIMETRIC TEST PANEL THAT WOULD PROVIDE CLINICIANS WITH RELIABLE, OBJECTIVE, ON-SITE DATA TO ASSIST IN DIAGNOSING THESE DISORDERS. SUCH A SCREENING PANEL WILL PERMIT STANDARDIZATION OF VARIOUS TESTING PROCEDURES AND PRODUCE UNIFORM TEST RESULTS,THEREBY ALLOWING COMPARISON OF CLINICAL STUDY DATA. IN PHASE II, LITMUS CONCEPTS, INC., WILL DEVELOP, OPTIMIZE, ANDFORMAT THE SCREENING PANEL.
