Did you know that each year, more than 700,000 people in the U.S. will get a gonorrhea infection?

Gonorrhea is an infection caused by a bacteria spread by sexual contact. Symptoms include a green, yellow or white discharge from the penis or vagina, a burning feeling when urinating or in the throat, and pain in the pelvis or testicles.

Usually, Gonorrhea can easily be treated with antibiotic medications. However, some strains are becoming resistant to the currently used medications. Because of this, new antibiotics must be developed to treat this ever-changing bacteria.

If you suspect that you may have Gonorrhea, you may qualify for a research trial that is studying a new treatment option. Qualified participants are treated free of charge, and will be compensated for their time and participation. Call Mills Clinical Research at 310-550-2271.
