BACKGROUND Studies show 11% to 15% of women treated for Chlamydia trachomatis are reinfected 3 to 4 months after treatment, suggesting the need for rescreening. There is little information on infections among men, infections with Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Trichomonas vaginalis, or long-term follow-up. OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of new sexually(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe heterosexual anal sex activity during a year and to identify factors associated with heterosexual anal sex and condom use during anal sex. METHODS Secondary analysis of data from a trial conducted in 3 public sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics. Patients described sexual behaviors every 3-months for the year. Logistic(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze 5-year prevalence trends in Chlamydia trachomatis infections among high-risk young men and women aged 16 to 24 years entering the National Job Training Program, where universal screening is required. METHODS Entrance exams conducted in over 100 National Job Training Program centers from 2003 to 2007 were considered. Women provided(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the use of home-based, self-obtained vaginal swabs among women who were treated for Chlamydia infection can increase rescreening rates in comparison with clinic-based rescreening, and to identify subgroups in which rescreening could be enhanced using self-obtained vaginal swabs. METHODS Two randomized trials were conducted:(More)
PURPOSE Although previous studies demonstrate associations between adverse perinatal outcomes and developmental disabilities (DDs), study of population impacts is limited. METHODS We computed relative risks adjusted (aRRs) for sociodemographic factors and component and summary population attributable fractions (PAFs) for associations between very low(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to estimate Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) screening rates by using reported sexually transmitted disease (STD) tests for sexually active women aged 16 to 25 years in the U.S. general population. METHODS We analyzed data from the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth. Women were classified as sexually active if they(More)
Prenatal and perinatal exposures to air pollutants have been shown to adversely affect birth outcomes in offspring and may contribute to prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). For this ecologic study, we evaluated the association between ASD prevalence, at the census tract level, and proximity of tract centroids to the closest industrial facilities(More)
We examined prevalence of diagnosed autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and age at diagnosis according to child’s race/ethnicity and primary household language. From the 2009–2010 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs, we identified 2729 3–17-year-old US children whose parent reported a current ASD diagnosis. We compared ASD prevalence, mean(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the impact of revised national treatment recommendations on fluoroquinolone use for gonorrhea in selected states. METHODS We evaluated gonorrhea cases reported through the Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Network as treated between July 1, 2006 and May 31, 2008, using interrupted time series analysis. Outcomes were(More)
