The objectives of these recommendations are to increase HIV screening of patients, including pregnant women, in health-care settings; foster earlier detection of HIV infection; identify and counsel persons with unrecognized HIV infection and link them to clinical and prevention services; and further reduce perinatal transmission of HIV in the United States.
Effect of expedited treatment of sex partners on recurrent or persistent gonorrhea or chlamydial infection.
Expedited treatment of sex partners reduces the rates of persistent or recurrent gonorrhea or chlamydial infection and is significantly more likely than those assigned to standard referral of partners to report that all of their partners were treated and significantly less likely to report having sex with an untreated partner.
Recombinant glycoprotein vaccine for the prevention of genital HSV-2 infection: two randomized controlled trials. Chiron HSV Vaccine Study Group.
Efficient and sustained protection from sexual acquisition of HSV-2 infection will require more than high titers of specific neutralizing antibodies, and protection against sexually transmitted viruses involving exposure over a prolonged period will require a higher degree of vaccine efficacy than that achieved in this study.

It is suggested that genital ulcerative diseases are an important risk factor for the acquisition of HIV infection in homosexual men; measures directed at control of these diseases may reduce the transmission of HIV in this population.
Genital herpes and public health: addressing a global problem.
Doctors and patients must be aware of the subclinical presentation of genital herpes and the potential these patients have for transmitting HSV, and researchers must evaluate the performance of type-specific tests and strategies to prevent transmission.
Genital human papillomavirus infection in women who have sex with women.

Patient-delivered partner treatment for prevention of repeated C trachomatis infection among women is comparable to self-referral and may be an appropriate option for some patients.
Sexual mixing patterns in the spread of gonococcal and chlamydial infections.
Mixing patterns influence the risk of specific infections, and they should be included in risk assessments for individuals and in the design of screening, health education, and partner notification strategies for populations.
Targeted screening for primary HIV infection through pooled HIV-RNA testing in men who have sex with men
Men who have sex with men (MSM) having HIV testing through Public Health, Seattle and King County were screened for primary infection through pooled RNA testing.
Culture-independent diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis using monoclonal antibodies.
To simplify the diagnosis of chlamydial genital infection, we used a fluorescein-conjugated monoclonal antibody in immunofluorescence tests on smears prepared from urethral or cervical secretions…
