Abstract:

The relationship between Trachoma-Inclusion Conjunctivitis agents TRIC Agents and Non-Specific urethritis NSU was investigated. The results of complement fixation and immunofluorescence studies using a group and a type-specific antigenantiserum are presented in detail, as well as other associated clinical and laboratory findings related to a routine evaluation of urethritis. It was shown that one or more TRIC agents probably account for a much larger percentage of NSU cases than previously thought. There appears to be a definite interrelationship between TRIC urethritis and epididymitis in young adults, and possibly with Reiters Syndrome. Author
