|OMEGA study underway investigating the reduction of |
transmission of gonorrhoea by using antiseptic mouthwash
Early this year we reported that a study by Melbourne Sexual Health Centre (MSHC) researchers found that gargling with Listerine mouthwash could inhibit the growth of the bacteria responsible for pharyngeal gonorrhoea.
The study of gay and bisexual men, while preliminary, attracted global attention. It was widely reported in the media including in newspapers, on radio, online, YouTube and Twitter, and attracted what co-author Dr Eric Chow said was a "massive" amount of emails.
Congratulations to all our National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Fellowship recipients in Central Clinical School (CCS) starting in 2018! We will write separate features on the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) recipients, Karen Alt and Patrick Kwan.
