Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma Molecular Testing Does Not Correlate with Irritative or Painful Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms.

J Urol 2021 Mar 29:101097JU0000000000001750. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Division of Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Urology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, California.

Purpose: For patients with persistent irritative lower urinary tract symptoms, such as dysuria and urinary frequency, evaluation for the atypical organisms Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma has been a common part of care. However, these species are genitourinary colonizers and have not been established as causative pathogens in chronic lower urinary tract symptoms. We therefore sought to evaluate diagnostic testing patterns for Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma and characterize the associations of these bacteria with irritative lower urinary tract symptoms using molecular detection techniques.

Sequential Exposure to Antenatal Microbial Triggers Attenuates Alveolar Growth and Pulmonary Vascular Development and Impacts Pulmonary Epithelial Stem/Progenitor Cells.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 22;8:614239. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Department of Pediatrics, Maastricht University Medical Center, Maastricht, Netherlands.

Perinatal inflammatory stress is strongly associated with adverse pulmonary outcomes after preterm birth. Antenatal infections are an essential perinatal stress factor and contribute to preterm delivery, induction of lung inflammation and injury, pre-disposing preterm infants to bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Considering the polymicrobial nature of antenatal infection, which was reported to result in diverse effects and outcomes in preterm lungs, the aim was to examine the consequences of sequential inflammatory stimuli on endogenous epithelial stem/progenitor cells and vascular maturation, which are crucial drivers of lung development.
