Evaluation of a real-time PCR assay for detection of Mycoplasma genitalium and macrolide resistance-mediating mutations from clinical specimens

Academic Article


  • Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) is a sexually transmitted pathogen for which there is no FDA-approved diagnostic test available in the United States. A modified real-time polymerase chain reaction assay for detecting MG and simultaneously identifying macrolide resistance mutations from clinical specimens was evaluated and proved to be sensitive and accurate for diagnostic purposes.
