BACKGROUND Cervical cancer, a human papillomavirus (HPV)-caused neoplasia, is highly prevalent in Mexico. GOAL To determine the prevalence of HPV infection in female sex workers (FSW) from Mexico City and to assess the association between HPV infection and the characteristics of these women. STUDY DESIGN A questionnaire was applied to 495 FSW. Cervical(More)
BACKGROUND If the predominant means of HIV transmission is heterosexual in the Soconusco region of Mexico, then the female sex workers (FSWs) from Central America who work in this region may be playing a significant role in the heterosexual transmission of HIV.

METHODS A survey was carried out among adolescents from poor homes in 204 small-urban areas of Mexico. Information(More)
SUMMARY Serum samples collected during the National Health and Nutrition survey (ENSANUT 2006) were obtained from subjects aged 1-95 years (January-October 2010) and analysed to assess the seroprevalence of Bordetella pertussis (BP) in Mexico. Subjects' gender, age, geographical region and socioeconomic status were extracted from the survey and compiled(More)
