Mycoplasma hominis

Mycoplasma species are the smallest free-living organisms without cell wall, capable of self-replication. M. hominis exists in parasitic and saprophytic state. It may be implicated in several diseases, although its role is unclear for most of them. There is evidence indicating that M. hominis may be implicated in pelvic inflammatory disease, which may cause ectopic pregnancy. This bacterium prospers in the environment created by other G- bacteria implicated in bacterial vaginosis and may be a cause of preterm delivery or miscarriage. It may also be implicated in postpartum fever, because it may be a cause of endometritis. M. hominis is also suspected to be the cause of neonatal infections, including conjunctivis, respiratory distress, fever, meningitis, abscesses and congenital pneumonia, which occurs a few hours after birth. In adults, M. hominis may be implicated in pharyngitis, septicaemia, lung, central nervous system and other respiratory tract infections, as well as joint and wound infections.

M. hominis PCR kits contain Internal Control for control of of DNA extraction and amplification processes.

For detection, 2 channels – FAM/Green and JOE/Yellow/HEX are needed.
