Comparing adverse neonatal and maternal outcomes of chlamydia, gonorrhoea, and syphilis infections and co-infections in pregnancy.

"Background" While maternal sexually transmitted infections during pregnancy have been extensively researched, no studies have evaluated the effects of various infections and co-infections, or even investigated the correlation between STIs in pregnancy and maternal outcomes. Objectives We investigate the connection between STIs and co-infections in pregnancy, resulting in adverse neonatal and maternal outcomes in pregnancy. Methods were used to determine the correlations between STIs in pregnancy and adverse pregnancy outcomes from data obtained from the 2019 U. S. natality registry. Using log-binomial regression, we investigated prevalence ratios of adverse neonatal and maternal outcomes by STI status and maternal outcomes by STI status. Except for gonorrhoea and chlamydya co-infections, all STI groups, except gonorrhoea and chlamydya co-infections, were linked to an elevated incidence of gestational hypertension, with the strongest relationship among those with syphilis co-infections. The connection and related factors of adverse maternal outcomes in pregnancy should be investigated further into the causes and related mechanisms of STIs in pregnancy.

Prevalence of and risk factors associated with HIV, Herpes Simplex Virus-type 2, Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections among 18-24 year old students attending Higher Learning Institutions in Mbeya-Tanzania.

"Background Sexually transmitted infections are prevalent among young people in low- and middle-income countries and are associated with poor reproductive and breastfeeding outcomes. " The majority of the studies looked at HIV among adolescents and young adults, but there is no evidence regarding other STIs in this population. According to a multivariate analysis, Sex, inconsistent condom use in the last four weeks, and sexual orientation remained strong, with Sex, inconsistent condom use in the past four weeks, and a sexual partner with an age difference of at least five years. For a streamlined result, funding agencies that have invested heavily on HIV prevention campaigns should consider extending the same treatment to other STIs.

Atypical ocular Chlamydia trachomatis infections in two patients attending in a second-level hospital: A case report.

In young adults, Chlamydia trachomatis causes two atypical inclusion conjunctivitis cases due to Chlamydia trachomatis. " Method Transcription mediated C. trachomatis amplification was achieved by Transcription using Aptima Combo 2 Assay. Samples of Conjunctival exudate were collected and sent to the Microbiology Laboratory, where C. trachomatis was identified. Conclusion With oral azithromycin 1 g. Both patients showed significant improvement with inclusion conjunctivitis, which could present as unspecified unilateral or bilateral chronic conjunctivitis. ".

Chlamydia-related knowledge, opinion to opportunistic testing, and practices of providers among different sexually transmitted infections related departments in hospitals in Shenzhen city, China.

"Background Chlamydia trachomatis infection could cause significant adverse outcomes if left untreated if left untreated. " "Being in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and has negative STI test findings, especially those from the department of obstetrics and venereology's department of obstetrics and gynecology, department of gynecology, and anorectal surgical department is another safe option for a sexually active individual to minimize the risk of getting CT, is another safe option for a long-term monogammo asexual a paternala partner who has negative a positive a positive a positive a positive obsteteta positive gya male and anogya positive ox gy, department of gy, department of gy, and anohé, department of gy, department of gyaetecology, and anomaetaehyae gy and has been a ecology, but not to find that Providers in hospitals with STI-related departments demonstrated a keen willingness to provide opportunistic CT screening.

A Nationwide Observational Study of Chlamydia trachomatis Infections in Denmark during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

"This research was done to see if COVID-19 restrictions had an effect on Chlamydia trachomatis infections in comparison to 2018 and 2019. The first Danish COVID-19 lockdown resulted in a decrease in the number of chlamydia tests administered and a consequent decrease in the number of laboratory-identified cases. The second Danish COVID-19 lockdown resulted in crude incidence rates of laboratory-confirmed chlamydia infection epidemic that were similar to the crude incidence rates seen during the same period in 2018 to 2019. The Danish COVID-19 restrictions, on laboratory-confirmed C. trachomatis transmission," in conclusion.

Prevalence of anatomically specific infections with Chlamydia trachomatis among men who have sex with men in China: protocol for a nationwide cross-sectional study as part of Disease Burden Surveillance of Infections with Chlamydia (DBSIC).

"Introduction Chlamydia trachomatis causes the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the world, and men with sex with men are considered a high risk group for the disease. " We aim to determine at the national level the anatomically precise CT prevalence and genotype distribution of CT strains among MSM, recruiting from MSM's sexual partners. In 14 cities of China's seven geographical regions, a total of 2429 participants will be recruited from the venues where MSM most often seek sex partners in 14 cities. The protocol will be reviewed by the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences Institute of Dermatology and the National Center for STD Control on October 9, 2021. ".

Prevalence of sexually transmitted infections with Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium and Trichomonas vaginalis : findings from the National Survey of Sexual Lifestyles, Attitudes and Health, Slovenia, 2016 to 2017.

"ResultsOf 1,929 survey participants, 1,087 people were encouraged to provide urine samples to be tested for STIs was administered anonymously for C. trachomatis and a subset were analyzed anonymously for the other STIs. The prevalence of C. trachomatis was 0. 5% in males and 1. 7% in women. In the sample from one woman, T. vaginalis was discovered. ConclusionThe high incidence of C. trachomatis among young adults among young adults indicates deficiencies in testing, diagnosis, and treatment. ".

Analysis of Ureaplasma urealyticum, Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections among obstetrics and gynecological outpatients in southwest China: a retrospective study.

"In UU positive patients, outine investigation of leucorrhea smear and drug susceptibility was carried out. " MG infections were more prevalent in women of reproductive age, including UU, CT, and MG infections, among other women of reproductive age, however NG infection was more prevalent in women aged 30-34 years and over 40 years. Overall, the infection rate in UU was much higher than that of the other three infections, and UU also played a major role in the mixed infections. About 75% of the UU positive patients had negative findings on routine leucorrhea smear testing, and the remaining patients may have bacterial vaginitis, fungal vaginitis, trichomonas vaginitis, or other vaginal inflammation. The results of the drug susceptibility test of UU showed a greater sensitivity to pristinamycin, tetracycline, clarithromycin, and josamycin, as well as decreased resistance to ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin.

Chlamydia pneumoniae infections and development of lung cancer: systematic review.

"We want to find out the connection between C. pneumoniae infection and lung cancer in this study. " Although some studies showed an association between C. pneumoniae infection and lung cancer, it's still debatable whether the C. pneumoniae infection is a risk factor for lung cancer is still debatable. To better understand the relationship between C. pneumoniae infection and lung cancer, we need further scientific trials on humans and animals with large observational studies.
