By Elizabeth Cohen and Nadia Kounang, CNN (CNN) — Every 15 minutes, someone in the United States dies of a superbug that has learned to outsmart even our most sophisticated antibiotics, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s about 35,000 deaths each year from drug-resistant infections, according to the landmark report. The report places five drug-resistant superbugs on the CDC’s “urgent threat” list — two more germs than were on the CDC’s list in 2013, the last time the agency issued a report on antibiotic resistance. Gene...

Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is a protozoan flagellate which usually dwells in the urogenital tract of humans. It is considered as a major cause of sexually transmitted disease (STD) (Satterwhite et al. 2013). TV is more prevalent than Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and syphilis altogether (World Health Organization, 2011). However, it is excluded from public health STD awareness programs and is considered a neglected parasitic infection (www.cdc.gov/parasites/npi). It is not a reportable infection and approximately 250 million new cases occur every year (World Health Organization, 2011).
