1.  Prevalence of chlamydial infection in promiscuous women. 
Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from the cervix of 18 (33%) of 55 women who admitted to two or more casual sexual contacts to one (3%) of 32 women who admitted to one casual contact in the preceding month. The chlamydial infections did not produce characteristic clinical features. Since promiscuous women are at high risk of acquiring chlamydial infection, they should be regarded as a priority group when resources for chlamydial isolation are limited.

4.  Treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhoea in women with talampicillin in a single oral 1.5 g dose. 
Four hundred and sixty women with uncomplicated gonorrhea were treated with a single oral dose of 1.5 g talampicillin. The success rate among those who attended for at least one follow-up examination after treatment was 99.14%. The antibiotic was well tolerated and no side effects were reported. Talampicillin given under supervision has proved to be the most effective and safest treatment in this area. A smaller dosage of talampicillin than ampicillin is required, the drug is better tolerated by the patient, and the time of nursing staff is saved.

6.  Urethritis caused by group B streptococci: a case report. 
We describe a case of urethritis caused by group B streptococci. The diagnosis was confirmed by examination of a Gram stained smear, isolation of the organism from the urethral discharge, and also by the clinical response to treatment with phenoxymethyl penicillin.

7.  Intraoral condylomata acuminata. A case report. 
Condylomata acuminata occurred intraorally in a 6 year old Nigerian girl. Since she had no skin or genital lesions and no history of sexual contact, the virus was probably acquired from environmental sources. Non-sexual modes of transmission should, therefore, be considered, particularly when the lesions are extragenital.

8.  Isolation of Neisseria lactamica from the female genital tract. A case report. 
Neisseria lactamica was isolated from the genital tract of a young patient with a persistent vaginal discharge. Although infection with N lactamica occurs very rarely, the importance of complete biochemical identification of neisseriae is emphasised in view of the serious social and medicolegal consequences which could result from a misdiagnosis of gonorrhoea.

12.  Thiamphenicol in the treatment of chancroid in men. 
Thiamphenicol was used to treat 547 men with chancroid. An oral dose of 2.5g was given on the first day and a further dose of 1.25g a week later if the lesions had not healed. Eighty-seven (15.9%) patients defaulted from follow up and 23 (4.2%) had positive serological test results for syphilis. Of the remaining 437 patients, 27 (6.2%) failed to respond to treatment, 258 (59%) were cured after the single dose, and 152 (34.8%) required a second dose. The overall cure rate was 93.8%.

14.  Cryotherapy versus electrocautery in the treatment of genital warts. 
Forty-two male patients with ano-genital warts were randomly allocated to a single-blind study of cryotherapy versus electrocautery. There was no significant difference in the success rates of these two forms of treatment in patients followed for three months. Cryotherapy was qualitatively much more acceptable to the patients than electrocautery. It seems particularly suited to patients with widely scattered warts who are unable to attend for regular treatment.

15.  Sclerosing granuloma inguinale. 
A 21-year-old European male patient presented with a penile sore of two months' duration. Donovan bodies were detected in a tissue smear from the lesion, which healed after treatment with co-trimoxazole. Sclerosing granuloma inguinale was diagnosed.

16.  Further evidence of the efficacy of co-trimoxazole in granuloma venereum. 
One hundred and sixteen patients with granuloma venereum were treated with cotrimoxazole two tablets twice daily. All the patients responded; most of them required treatment for 10-15 days. Only two patients had recurrences, which were probably due to reinfections. No side effects of the drug occurred. Co-trimoxazole is considered to be the treatment of choice for granuloma venereum because of its high efficacy, few side effects, easy administration, and absence of any risk of masking concomitant syphilis.

18.  Minimum inhibitory concentrations of penicillin and minocycline for 300 isolates of N. gonorrhoeae. 
The minimum inhibitory concentrations of penicillin and minocycline were measured on 300 consecutive isolates of N. gonorrhoeae from patients attending the Nottingham treatment centre. 210 (70 per cent.) of these were fully sensitive to penicillin (MIC less than 0-1 mug./ml) and 89 per cent. were fully sensitive to minocycline (MIC less than 0-5 mug./ml.). Of the nine strains resistant to penicillin (MIC less than or equal to 0-5 mug./ml.), eight were also of reduced sensitivity to minocycline.
