OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of pharyngeal and rectal Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) infections among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Germany and describe associations between these infections, sexual practices and other factors to provide an evidence base for screening recommendations. METHODS We conducted a(More)
In Germany, routine RV-vaccination is not adopted into the national immunization schedule as of 2012. Because RV-vaccines were already on the market since 2006, in 2010 a moderate (58%) and low (22%) vaccine uptake was observed in the 5 eastern federal states (EFS) and the 11 western federal states (WFS), respectively. To assess the impact of(More)
To determine prevalence of lymphogranuloma venereum among men who have sex with men in Germany, we conducted a multicenter study during 2009-2010 and found high rates of rectal and pharyngeal infection in men positive for the causative agent, Chlamydia trachomatis. Many infections were asymptomatic. An adjusted C. trachomatis screening policy is justified(More)
BACKGROUND Globally, the HIV epidemic continues to represent a pressing public health issue in Europe and elsewhere. There is an emerging and progressively urgent need to harmonise HIV and STI behavioural surveillance among MSM across European countries through the adoption of common indicators, as well as the development of trend analysis in order to(More)
Sexuell übertragbare Infektionen (STI) können die sexuelle Gesundheit beeinträchtigen. Surveillance- und Studiendaten aus Deutschland wurden ausgewertet. Im Jahr 2015 wurde die Zahl der HIV-Neudiagnosen auf etwa 3900 geschätzt. 57 % der Neudiagnosen entfielen auf Männer, die Sex mit Männern hatten (MSM). Für das Jahr 2015 wurde weiterhin geschätzt, dass(More)
Within the MSM population, men who have sex with both men and women (MSMW) are identified as a high-risk group both worldwide and in Europe. In a multi-centred bio-behavioural cross-sectional study, we aimed to assess the relationship(s) between socio-demographic factors, stigma, sexual behavioural patterns, test seeking behaviour and sero-status amongst(More)
Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infections are not reportable in Germany and limited data on prevalence are available. CT screening has been offered free of charge to pregnant women since 1995 and to all women under 25 years since 2008. For symptomatic women and men, diagnostic testing is covered by statutory health insurance. We describe the establishment of a(More)
Weltweit sind zunehmende Antibiotikaresistenzen (AMR) bei Infektionen mit Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) zu beobachten. Aufgrund der fehlenden Meldepflicht in Deutschland stehen kaum epidemiologische und bevölkerungsbezogene Daten zur Verbreitung von NG-Infektionen und deren AMR zur Verfügung. Ziel der hier vorgestellten Erhebung war die Erfassung der(More)
