Overall, HSV-2 seroprevalence increases with number of lifetime sex partners for all race/ethnicity groups (p<.001) Seroprevalence high among non-Hispanic blacks even with few lifetime sex partners: with only 2-4 partners, seroprevalence 34%
Herpetic lesions are associated with an influx of activated CD4 lymphocytes which may result in an increased expression of HIV on mucosal surfaces. HSV reactivation is more frequent in HIV-infected patients.
The burden of infection is highest among sexually active adolescents and young adults. This figure shows chlamydia prevalence by age, based on nationally representative data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, NHANES. [ CLICK ] Sexually active people aged 14-24 have about 3 times the chlamydia prevalence of sexually active adults aged 25-39.
Chlamydia-associated tubal inflammation can result in fibrosis, scarring, and loss of tubal function, which in turn can lead to long-term sequelae, such as tubal factor infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain. Tubal factor infertility is the inability to conceive due to structural or functional fallopian tube damage. Chlamydia is the leading preventable cause of tubal factor infertility.
To find and treat sex partners of patients with chlamydia, CDC and many medical associations endorse expedited partner therapy, or EPT. EPT involves providing prescriptions or medications to the patient to take to her partner, without examining the partner first. Two randomized controlled trials provide evidence that EPT is useful in assuring partner treatment and reducing repeat infections.
Bacterial antibiotic resistance or the inability of an antibiotic to cure an infection, undermines treatment success, heightens the risk of complications, and facilitates disease transmission since it lengthens the duration of the infection. Neisseria gonorrhoeae has demonstrated the ability to progressively develop antibiotic resistance to nearly all of the antibiotics used for treatment. Starting with the sulfa drugs at the dawn of the antibiotic era, gonorrhea subsequently developed resistance to penicillin, tetracycline, and most recently, the fluoroquinolones .
before generalizing to the heterosexual population and geographically to the entire US. In 2007, CDC no longer recommended fluoroquinolones for the treatment of gonorrhea. This left us with cephalosporins as the last remaining class of antibiotics that were effective, well-studied and recommended.
This is a broad overview of hpv associated diseases and cancers in Men and women. A variety of Genital cancers and precancers are attributed to HPV, of course the most Well described is cervical cancer. In addition, a subset of op cancers are due to HPV, RRP or recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, and anogenital warts. The next few slides I will describe the prevalence Of cervical cancer precursor lesions and anogenital Warts by agegroup. These contribute to a bulk Of the burden of HPV-associated conditions.
Australia is one country that has achieved high coverage of HPV vaccine in the target age groups through school based vaccination and national funding of all vaccine in the recommended age groups. They also had a limited 2 year funded catchup through age 26 yrs. Australia is the first country to demonstrate an impact of HPV vaccine – They used Quadrivalent vaccine they were were able to observe an impact on genital warts outcomes, one of the first HPV related out comes expected to be observed since genital warts occur soon after infection. Here is shown proportion of women in the eligible age group with first genital wart diagnoses by half year intervals in two time periods, prevaccine period and the vaccine period. As noted, there have been a significant 73% decrease in GW since introduction of vaccine in resident women compared with 25% decline among those who are non resident.
