Abstract

Carriership of agents of sexually transmitted diseases (Trichomonas, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma) is highly prevalent in healthy monkeys living in the Adler Breeding Center. The incidence of these microorganisms is appreciably higher in animals with gestoses and labor abnormalities in comparison with animals with normal genital function. Mixed infection caused by 2–4 agents is much more incident than monoinfection.
