Ureaplasma parvum is a species of Ureaplasma, a genus of bacteria belonging to the family Mycoplasmataceae. Ureaplasma parvum has been identified as being a commensal in the uterus as part of the microbiome in healthy women of reproductive age. In addition, this pathogen may latently infect the chorionic villi tissues of pregnant women, thereby impacting pregnancy outcome.

Did you know...?
The Ureaplasma parvum bacterium is part of the microbiome of most adults. It can be passed on to the baby in the womb, but remains latent until puberty. It is estimated that up to 70% of sexually active women of childbearing age are infected with ureaplasma. Epidemiological data indicate that Ureaplasma parvum can be transmitted to 18-55% of newborns whose mothers are carriers of this pathogen.
Why knowledge about Ureaplasma is important?
The most common symptoms include: frequent and painful urination, urge to empty bladder, pain in the urethra, problems with passing urine properly and emptying a full bladder. Complications of untreated ureoplasma include prostatitis in men, decreased sperm viability or infertility, inflammation of the cervical and ovarian canals, fetal infection and abnormal development of the child, premature birth or miscarriage.
How the test is performed?
In the diagnosis of Ureaplasma, PCR techniques are primarily used to confirm or exclude the presence of the pathogen in the tested material. The advantage of PCR over other methods results from the sensitivity and specificity of the test - the reliability is over 99%. Genetic material analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. Thanks to the IFU instructions included in the kit, it can easily interpret the results, without the possibility of making a mistake. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Quick diagnosis will enable the implementation of treatment. Only by means of a genetic test are we able to detect the presence of the pathogen in 100%.
What can be done after the test result?
Treatment for both men and women is similar. Appropriate antibiotics prescribed by a doctor are used. The partner must also undergo treatment in order to prevent reinfection and the spread of the disease. After using the drugs, it is best to make a follow-up visit, you can also return the sample for testing. Once treated, however, the infection has a tendency to recur.
