"We looked at the prevalence of reported chlamydia in Toronto during the five years leading to the labour disruption and the periods immediately before, during, and after the work disruption in the summer of 2009. " paraphrasedoutput:Time series regression analysis was used to look for significant differences in the pattern of observed chlamydia incidence around the time of the outbreak. There was a small increase in reported cases of chlamydia among some groups that were not expected during the time immediately following the labour disruption, which was beyond what was expected based on annual increases and projected seasonal trends.

Screening for Syphilis in Cases of Suspected Gonorrhea and Chlamydia Infections

"In all cases of suspected sexually transmitted infections, it has been common practice to screen for syphilis with a blood sample. " In cases of suspected gonorrhea and chlamydia infections, the aim of our study was to determine whether it is cost-effective to screen for syphilis with serological testing. In cases of suspected gonorrhea and chlamydia infections, we find that testing for syphilis is not cost-effective. Our review was approved retrospective study by the New York Medical College institutional review board. The laboratory work of all patients undergoing gonorrhea and chlamydia in our emergency department was reviewed from January 2004 to August 12, 2006. 196 patients were screened for gonorrhea and chlamydia during this period. Chlamydia alone was 85. 9%, while gonorrhea alone was 7. 69 percent. Both chlamydia and gonorrhea were present in 6. 4%. ".
