Men get fast chlamydia diagnosis

31st July 2009

A test developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge can detect the sexually transmitted infection chlamydia in men in less than an hour.

The STI is the most prevalent in England, with 68 young males per 1,000 having the condition. Dr Helen Lee, who worked on the study, said: "Without an effective and rapid testing programme for men, we are unlikely to succeed in efforts to control chlamydia infection. This new test is both accurate and swift, allowing men attending the clinics to be tested and treated on site in one visit."
