The STI Clinic News > Potential New Gonorrhoea Treatment

Posted: Thursday, 12 June 2014 | Categories: Gonorrhoea

We have written many times before about how Gonorrhoea is becoming resistant to antibiotic therapy and the race really is now on to find a new medication to deal with this increasingly prevalent STI. Most of the old medications, such a Ciprofloxacin, that were once effective against gonorrhoea are more or less obsolete in terms of being able to treat this particular infection.

AstraZenica, fresh from fighting of the unwanted advances of Pfizer, has been granted a fast track status by the FDA for its new gonorrhoea medication. Astra is keeping tight lipped about its new product but if the product works and is safe, this could be a very much needed new product in the arsenal of new antibiotics that we are going to require to fight infections that have become resistant to the older antibiotics out there.

If someone tests positive for Gonorrhoea then we have to recommend an intramuscular injection of Ceftriaxone along with an oral dose of Azithromycin. If the patient is unwilling or unable to have the intramuscular injection then that element of the therapy can be substituted with Cefixime.

You can get tested for gonorrhoea through this website but using a sample collection kit that is easy to use. We have a test that reports results in under 4 hours if time is important and our standard tests are pretty quick, with next day results and free treatment if you test positive.
