Research on biofilms during the past two years has surfaced multiple strains of gonnorhea. This infection is widespread and may be latent for decades with serious consequences.
Gonorrhea (also spelled gonorrhoea or gonorrhœa; colloquially known as the clap) is a common human sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The usual symptoms in men are burning with urination and penile discharge. Women, on the other hand, are asymptomatic half the time or have vaginal discharge and pelvic pain. In both men and women, if gonorrhea is left untreated, it may spread locally, causing epididymitis or pelvic inflammatory disease or throughout the body, affecting joints and heart valves. Wikipedia
