By Marlene Benchimol and Victor do Valle Midlej, Santa Ursula University
Trichomonas vaginalis is a protozoan parasite of the urogenital tract in men and women and causes a sexually transmitted disease, trichomoniasis, in about half of infected women. Infections are associated with pelvic inflammatory disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes, infertility, an increased incidence of aggressive prostate cancers, and an increase in HIV-1 transmission. Learn more in the article by Conrad et al. in the January 2013 issue of Trends in Parasitology.
