Bacterial Disease Study

The purpose of this research study is to learn about the ability of different types germs to cause an infection of gonorrhea. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause discomfort during urination, urethral discharge, or a drip of pus from the penis. This study will help us to learn about how gonorrhea works inside the body and what about the bacteria makes it infectious. We hope that we can use this knowledge to possibly develop a vaccine against gonorrhea.
