PURPOSE This paper has aimed at estimating the prevalence of infections by Chlamydia trachomatis and by Neisseria gonorrhoeae in pregnant women from six Brazilian cities, identifying its association with socio-economical and demographic variables. METHODS This study has been part of a multicentric nationwide transversal research, with samples of pregnant(More)
OBJECTIVE This study sought to investigate the age at natural menopause and its predictors in a cohort of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected women in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. STUDY DESIGN HIV-infected women ≥30 years of age were included. Menopause was defined as having ≥1 year since the last menstrual period. Early age at natural menopause was(More)
BACKGROUND HPV persistence is a key determinant of cervical carcinogenesis. The influence of postpartum on HPV clearance has been debated. This study aimed to assess HPV clearance in later pregnancy and postpartum among HIV-positive and negative women. METHODS We conducted a follow-up study with 151 HPV-positive women coinfected with HIV, in 2007-2010.(More)
BACKGROUND The burden of HIV in transgender women (transwomen) in Brazil remains unknown. We aimed to estimate HIV prevalence among transwomen in Rio de Janeiro and to identify predictors of newly diagnosed HIV infections. METHODS We recruited transwomen from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by respondent-driven sampling. Eligibility criteria were(More)
INTRODUCTION Cervical cancer remains an important burden for HIV-infected women in the era of combination antiretroviral therapy. Recommendations for cervical screening in these women diverge and may include high-risk HPV (HRHPV) testing. We aimed to evaluate the clinical usefulness of a single HRHPV testing for cervical screening of HIV-infected women. (More)
e200 www.thelancet.com/hiv Vol 3 May 2016 Authors’ reply Wilson and colleagues report important new information showing that most transgender women achieved protective concentrations of drugs in an open label pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) demonstration project in Brazil. This is consistent with findings showing that effective use of PrEP is common in(More)
OBJECTIVES HIV-infected women are at increased risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Time trends in annual prevalences of cervical high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) genotypes among a non-vaccinated, HIV-infected female cohort in urban Brazil were assessed for the period 2006-2012. METHODS Cervical specimens were collected for HPV genotyping(More)
Objective. To estimate HPV prevalence among pregnant women from Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, and the possible influence of HIV-1 infection on this prevalence. Methods. A cross-sectional study with 44 HIV-positive and 53 HIV-negative pregnant women was conducted. Cervicovaginal specimens were obtained from all women during gynecologic exam. HPV DNA, low and high(More)
INTRODUCTION Evidence suggests that, of all affected populations, transgender women (transwomen) may have the heaviest HIV burden worldwide. Little is known about HIV linkage and care outcomes for transwomen. We aimed to estimate population-level indicators of the HIV cascade of care continuum, and to evaluate factors associated with viral suppression among(More)
