STD & HIV: Sexually transmitted infections increase the risk of HIV acquisition and transmission by fivefold. WHO. Report on global sexually transmitted infection surveillance. Geneva, Switzerland: World Health Organization 2013
Neisseria meningitides, a pathogen that causes meningitis, including among men who have sex with men, is increasingly associated with urogenital infections.
Among gay and bisexual men, syphilis rate is 106 times higher than the rate in heterosexual men and 168 times higher than the rate in women.
The vaccine induces antibodies against three different parts of the virus, including two components that normally help herpes virus evade immune attack. The findings are likely to lead to human clinical trials.
Antiretroviral drugs taken to treat HIV infection may increase the risk for syphilis, new research contends.
The Sexually Transmitted Diseases epidemic is getting worse.
Around 1 in 10 men and 1 in 20 women reported sex with a new partner during their travels abroad. Sex while overseas is less likely to be protected. Use of alcohol and drug prevents adoption of safer-sex practices.
In addition to smoking cessation and undergoing regular screening, sedentary life is another important modifiable risk factor. Just 30 minutes of exercise a week might lower chances of cancer cervix.
Recurrent, treatment resistant genital warts may be due to GATA2 immunodeficiency. Bone marrow transplant may be the answer.
VRC01, an antibody under study stops up to 90 percent of HIV strains worldwide from infecting human cells.
Syphilis is on the rise in many cities
HIV and Hepatitis C co-infection exist in 2.3 million people worldwide. People living with HIV are six times more likely to be co-infected with Hepatitis C.
Yet another sexually transmitted infection needed to watch out for. Unfortunately, Mycoplasma genitalium is not on the radar of many physicians.
Transmission of Shigella is easy with anal contact. Diarrhoea lasting more than 48 hours is a warning sign.
We do not know how long the virus is present in semen in men who have had Zika.
Human papilloma virus type 16 in the oral cavity increases the risk of mouth and throat cancers by 22 fold.
Among people who perceive themselves to be at risk of HIV infection, only 14% had taken an HIV test.
Reliance on urogenital screening alone misses most of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia in men and more than 15% of infections in women, reporting anal sex.
