Viral Epidemiology Branch, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland 20852, USA.
Background And Objectives: To determine the prevalence rates of serological reactivity of Haemophilus (H.) ducreyi, Treponema pallidum, and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) antibodies among female sex workers (FSWs) and their association with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody status.
Study Design: Cross-sectional, standard serological assays were used for syphilis, HSV-2 and HIV; a modified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to detect specific anti-H. Read More

We aimed to determine if the clinical and histological features of chancroid are altered by HIV infection. Male patients presenting to the Nairobi special treatment clinic with a clinical diagnosis of chancroid were eligible for the study. A detailed history, physical examination, swabs for Haemophilus ducreyi culture and blood for HIV serology, syphilis serology and CD4 counts were obtained from all patients. Read More

To gain information on the specific composition of the inflammatory infiltrate of genital ulcers caused by Haemophilus ducreyi, biopsies of 6 genital ulcers which were diagnosed as chancroid on clinical and microbiological grounds were subjected to immunohistochemical investigations after conventional haematoxylineosin staining. A variety of antibodies reactive against B- and T-cells, plasma cells and granulocytes were used with each tissue sections. The lymphocytic infiltrate of chancroid ulcers consisted of both B- and T-lymphocytes and showed a cluster-like formation. Read More

Department of Infection and Immunity, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium.
The cellular immune responses to fractionated Haemophilus ducreyi antigens, coated on latex beads, were assessed in patients with chancroid and in controls, using an in vitro lymphocyte proliferation assay. Several fractions of H. ducreyi antigen revealed stimulating activity. Read More
