A cohort of 2671 men, 1774 of whom were exposed to acrylonitrile, was observed from 1951 through 1983 for mortality. No statistically significant excess of all-cause or cause-specific mortality was observed. Analysis of exposure duration to acrylonitrile with respiratory cancer mortality showed no trend. Men exposed to high levels of acrylonitrile had(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the characteristics of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected black African immigrants living in King County, Washington, we evaluated delay in HIV diagnosis, access to HIV care, and risk of progression to AIDS or death. METHODS We compared differences in the risk of progression to AIDS or death between HIV-positive African-born(More)
A cohort of 2,671 men, 1561 of whom were exposed to methyl methacrylate, was observed from 1951 to 1983 for mortality. This cohort consisted of men from two plants. This study utilizes detailed exposure estimates and smoking status to evaluate mortality patterns. We find no statistically significant excess all-cause or cause-specific mortality. Analysis of(More)
PURPOSE We sought to identify attitudes and knowledge of adolescent vaccination recommendations for tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap); quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate (MCV4); and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines among Hispanic, Somali, and Ethiopian/Eritrean communities in King County, Washington. METHODS In-person surveys of(More)
OBJECTIVE HIV-1 drug resistance has been detected in 8%-24% of recently infected North Americans when assessed by consensus sequencing of plasma. We hypothesized that rates were likely higher but not detected because drug-resistant mutants are transmitted or regressed to levels below the limit of detection by consensus sequencing of HIV-1 RNA. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES In February 2007, Public Health-Seattle and King County issued a press release describing a cluster of multiclass drug-resistant HIV cases among men who had sex with men (MSM). We evaluated the effect of the press release among MSM in the Seattle area. METHODS We administered a rapid assessment survey at venues where MSM congregate. Eligible(More)
