Until recently, the fluoroquinolones (ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin) have been the first line oral agents for the empiric treatment of gonorrhea. The prevalence of quinolone resistant Neisseria gonorrheae (QRNG) has been rising since 2000. In 2006, the CDC updated its guidelines to include recommendations against the use of quinolones for treatment of Neisseria gonorrheae. Ceftriaxone (available only by intravenous or intramuscular route) was named as the first line treatment for urogenital and pharyngeal disease. Availability, in the United States, of the other two CDC recommended agents cefixime (oral) and spectinomycin (IM) has been nonexistent.
At this time, there is little data on the in-vitro (laboratory test) susceptibility of antibiotics against gonorrhea, particularly oral drugs. The purpose of this study is to collect specimens of gonorrhea in a non-invasive swab manner from men with symptomatic urethral discharges for laboratory sensitivity testing against a wide array of antibiotic agents.
To perform a laboratory sensitivity testing survey of antibiotic agents against Neisseria gonorrhea isolates from men with symptomatic urethritis seen at a Duval County STD clinic .

An antibiotic produced by Streptomyces spectabilis. It is active against gram-negative bacteria and used for the treatment of gonorrhea.
A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria primarily found in purulent venereal discharges. It is the causative agent of GONORRHEA.
Acute infectious disease characterized by primary invasion of the urogenital tract. The etiologic agent, NEISSERIA GONORRHOEAE, was isolated by Neisser in 1879.
Broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic resistant to beta-lactamase. It has been proposed for infections with gram-negative and gram-positive organisms, GONORRHEA, and HAEMOPHILUS.
Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.
