Abstract B42: Factors associated to Chlamydia trachomatis and HPV co-positivity in women aged 16-64 years old living in metropolitan area of San Juan, Puerto Rico
Conclusions: This study is the first one to examine the risk factors that affect the co-positivity between HPV and CT among Puerto Rican women. We found that risk factors such as the use of tobacco, alcohol, number of sexual partners, and age of onset of sexual activity increase the possibility for these women of being HPV and CT seropositive. Future longitudinal studies should further evaluate the association between CT and HPV in serum and anogenital anatomic sites, their risk factors and investigate whether infection with CT influence the acquisition and persistence of HPV in men and women of this population; this information will be essential to help further understand the potential interactions between HPV and CT and their impact on HPV-related cancer occurrence.

The chemical structures of individual hybridized GSE derivatives were identified as 3'-O-decanoyl catechin, 3′-O-decanoyl epicatechin, 3', 5'-2-O-decanoyl epigallocatechin, and 3', 4', 3'', 5''-4-O-decanoyl epicatechin gallate by HPLC-MS2 and 1H and 13C NMR.

The synthesis of twenty cyclic C5-curcuminoids is described in this study in order to gain more insight into their anticancer struct...
