"The results mainly focused on the efficacy of doxycycline and azithromycin for urogenital, rectal, and oropharyngeal CT infection, CT risk factors in women, results of CT nucleic acid amplification studies in males, and the results of newer CT point-of-care studies. ".

"Respondents were encouraged to provide urine samples to be tested for STIs," the study revealed. Results of 1,929 survey respondents, 1,087 individuals, submitted urine samples that were confidentially tested for C. trachomatis and a subset were tested anonymously for other STIs. " C. trachomatis incidence in males and women was 0. 5% in men and 1. 7% in women. In the sample collected by one woman, a C. trachomatis outbreak among young adults was found, indicating "long gaps in measurement, diagnosis, and treatment. ".
"The goal of this research was to determine whether 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 performed 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 that were similar to the crude incidence rates seen during the same period in 2018 to 2019. In conclusion, the Danish COVID-19 measures had negligible influence on laboratory-confirmed C. trachomatis transmission. ".

"Research using nucleic acid amplification techniques has consistently found rectal and oropharyngeal infections with Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae to be common and potentially more difficult to handle than genital infections. " To address this public health concern, we established a joint collaboration between academic research and diagnostic manufacturers. As with the three oropharyngeal swabs, the 3 anal swabs were mixed into a single transport tube. The most dependable chlamydia samples were found 5. 9 and 1. 2%, respectively, compared to 4. 2 and 4. 2 percent for gonorrhea. Sensitivity for chlamydia detection varied from 81. 0 to 91. 2 percent and 82. 8 to 100% for anal and oropharyngeal specimens, respectively. Although there was heterogeneity in sensitivity results, these assays have greater ability to detect extragenital infections than culture, and may have more effective ways to provide appropriate sexual health care to populations in which these infections are concerning.
