Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Clinical Prostatitis, and the Risk of Prostate Cancer

"Prostate cancer diagnoses were established by self-report on the 1994 and each subsequent biennial follow-up questionnaire, which was confirmed by medical record analysis. " Results: Of the 36,033 people included in this study, 2,263 patients were diagnosed with prostate cancer between the 1992 questionnaire's return to office and 2002. Overall, null findings were also found between clinical prostatitis and prostate cancer, although a strong positive correlation was found among younger men screened for prostate cancer. Conclusions: Gonorrhea and syphilis don't appear to be risk factors for prostate cancer in this cohort of men with a lower risk of sexually transmitted infections. Clinical prostatitis is also unlikely to be a risk factor, although potential roles for prostatitis in younger men and asymptomatic prostatic infection and inflammation cannot be ruled out. ".

Factors associated with non-guideline-adherent treatment for gonorrhea and chlamydia among outpatient prescriptions in the Unites States

"Background: Patients at risk for sexually transmitted infections routinely receive medical care at non-specialized outpatient clinics staffed by physicians and experienced practice clinicians. Methods: Retrospective cohort study involving adult patients with chlamydia and/or gonorrhea at urgent care, family medicine, internal medicine, or Obstetrics and gynecology clinics. Overall, 12. 8% of female patients and 19. 1% of male patients were on antibiotic therapy with inadequate antibiotic therapy. Compared to infections with chlamydia alone, pregnancy, infection with gonorrhea, and co-infection were all related with inadequate therapy. Female patients treated in Ob-Gyn clinics had lower odds of inadequate therapy compared to UC clinics. The odds of inadequate therapy among males did not differ by clinician type, however males' odds of inadequate therapy did not differ by gender. Conclusions: Inadequate antibiotic therapy for chlamydia and/or gonorrhea was not connected to the type of clinician.

Community engagement on-site rapid test for chlamydia and gonorrhea among men who have sex with men: a pioneering study in Guangzhou, China

"Abstract Background Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are common among Chinese men with sex. " This pilot research was designed to determine whether conducting rapid nucleic acid tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea in MSM community-based organizations was feasible. MSM's (syphilis and HIV testing) was completed on-site at the CBO from August 2020 to October 2020, and 158 people were officially registered for the on-site chlamydia and gonorrhea rapid test, with 135 being finally enrolled. Only 19. 3% participants had undergone chlamydya and gonorrhea testing, and 68% said they had never heard of gonorrhea before, but 56. 4 percent had never heard of chlamydia, and 68. 9% said they had never heard of gonorrhea. Conclusions This pilot study found that the chlamydia and gonorrhea infection rate among MSM is still high, despite the fact that the testing rate was low. ".

Gonorrhea Prevalence Among Young Women and Men Entering the National Job Training Program, 2000–2017

"To investigate long-term gonorrhea prevalence trends from a sentinel surveillance population of young people at a risk of gonorrhea. " We analyzed annual cross-sectional urogenital gonorrhea screening results from 191 991 women and 224 348 men 16 to 24 years of age, a U. S. vocational training program. According to findings published by National Job Training Program enrollees, gonorrhea prevalence is on rising among young women, while young men remain relatively stagnant and stagnant.

Relationships of Stigma and Shame to Gonorrhea and HIV Screening

"Two scales assessed STD-related stigma and STD-related stigma," the STD-related stigma and STD-related anxiety. " Participants without a gonorrhea test in the previous year and among those without an HIV test were both higher. Shame is a component of the treatment that has been sought for STD-related medical attention, but stigma can be a more significant barrier to getting such services. ".

Racial Residential Segregation and Rates of Gonorrhea in the United States, 2003–2007

"We investigated the connection between racial segregation in gonorrhea rates among Black people and gonorrhea rates among Black people and hypothesized that particular aspects of segregation could be related to gonorrhea rates. " In 257 metropolitan statistical areas, we used national STI surveillance results from 2003 to 2007 to examine results of five dimensions of racial segregation and a composite measure of hypersegregation with gonorrhea rates among Black people in 257 metropolitan statistical areas, both by sexe and age. Understanding STI risk among U. S. Black people is complicated by specific features of segregation.
