The pathogenicity of a newly discovered human mycoplasma (strain G37) for the genital tract of marmosets

  • D. Taylor-Robinson (a1), Patricia M. Furr (a1) and C. M. Hetherington (a2)

Summary

In an attempt to demonstrate the pathogenicity of a newly discovered mycoplasma (strain G37) isolated from the human genital tract, six female marmosets (Callithix jacchus) were inoculated intravaginally. Four of the animals were infected as indicated by repeated recovery of the organisms on vaginal swabbing, and infection persisted for 72–149 days or more. In addition, the infected marmosets exhibited a serum antibody response detected most easily by an immunofluorescence technique, and a persistent vaginal polymorphonuclear leucocyte response not seen in two uninfected and in two uninoculated animals.
