The fallopian tubes (FT) play a key role in fertility by facilitating the movement of gametes to promote fertilisation and, subsequently, passage of the zygote for implantation. Histologically, the FT mucosa consists of three main cell types: secretory, ciliated and peg cells. In addition, several studies have reported the presence of immune cells. Read More

Infect Immun 2022 01 1;90(1):e0045321. Epub 2021 Nov 1.

Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Chlamydia trachomatis is a leading infectious cause of infertility in women due to its induction of lasting pathology such as hydrosalpinx. Chlamydia muridarum induces mouse hydrosalpinx because C. muridarum can both invade tubal epithelia directly (as a first hit) and induce lymphocytes to promote hydrosalpinx indirectly (as a second hit).

Evaluating Fallopian Tube Patency: What the Radiologist Needs to Know.

Radiographics 2021 Oct;41(6):1876-18961

From the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Einstein Healthcare Network, 5501 Old York Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19141-3098 (M.G., V.S.K., S.K.R.); Department of Radiology, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, England (N.B., A.H.); and Endometriosis Center, Amsterdam, University Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (V.M.).

Impaired tubal patency accounts for up to 35% of cases of subfertility and infertility. Hysterosalpingography (HSG) or hysterosalpingo-contrast sonography (HyCoSy) represents a first-line test in evaluating fallopian tube patency. Despite the association of HSG with ionizing radiation, HSG is a reference standard in assessing fallopian tube patency and tubal conditions such as tubal occlusion, salpingitis isthmica nodosa, and hydrosalpinx.

Gonococcal Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Placing Mechanistic Insights Into the Context of Clinical and Epidemiological Observations.

J Infect Dis 2021 08;224(12 Suppl 2):S56-S63

Department of Molecular Genetics, Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

While infection by Neisseria gonorrhoeae is often asymptomatic in women, undetected infections can ascend into the upper genital tract to elicit an inflammatory response that manifests as pelvic inflammatory disease, with the outcomes depending on the intensity and duration of inflammation and whether it is localized to the endometrial, fallopian tube, ovarian, and/or other tissues. This review examines the contribution of N. gonorrhoeae versus other potential causes of pelvic inflammatory disease by considering new insights gained through molecular, immunological, and microbiome-based analyses, and the current epidemiological burden of infection, with an aim to highlighting key areas for future study.

The Continued Challenges in the Diagnosis of Acute Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Focus on Clinically Mild Disease.

J Infect Dis 2021 08;224(12 Suppl 2):S75-S79

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Many women with lower genital tract infections associated with sexually transmitted pathogens have evidence of upper genital tract inflammation despite the absence of symptoms and signs traditionally associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). New biomarkers are needed to identify these women with clinically mild PID or subclinical PID (silent salpingitis) to facilitate initiation of early treatment and ameliorate the sequelae associated with upper genital tract infection and inflammation.

MiR-378b Modulates -Induced Upper Genital Tract Pathology.

Pathogens 2021 May 7;10(5). Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry & Immunology, Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30310, USA.

Genital infection causes severe reproductive pathologies such as salpingitis and pelvic inflammatory disease that can lead to tubal factor infertility. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are evolutionarily conserved regulators of mammalian gene expression in development, immunity and pathophysiologic processes during inflammation and infection, including infection. Among the miRNAs involved in regulating host responses and pathologic outcome of infection, we have shown that miR-378b was significantly differentially expressed during primary infection and reinfection.
