This study determined if prenatal C. trachomatis infection is associated with preterm birth (PTB) and preeclampsia subtypes. Methods A retrospective cohort study was conducted using 22,772 singleton pregnancies with a prenatal C. trachomatis diagnostic test. Spontaneous and medically indicated PTBs, and term and preterm preeclampsia were outcomes. Modified Poisson regression calculated relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) with propensity score adjustments stratified by maternal ages

CONCLUSION: Traditional risk factors are associated with increased risk of infection during pregnancy. Prenatal care adequacy and insurance status were associated with the likelihood of being tested. Delays in treatment and tests of reinfection were common. Point-of-care testing and expedited partner therapy should be explored as ways to improve the management of these infections in pregnancy.

Abstract Healthy development is likely to occur when an adolescent's risk factors are limited and when protective factors are fostered. Healthy development is further encouraged when youth feel valued, empowered, and form healthy social connections. Threats to the well-being of adolescents typically result from experimentation and psychosocial stressors. SSHADESS (strengths, school, home, activities, drugs, emotions/eating, sexuality, safety) is a mnemonic to facilitate collection of psychosocial history of critical life dimensions emphasizing strengths within a youth's life experience instead of solely focusing o...

Abstract To clarify the risk factors for chlamydial infection and determine whether infection during pregnancy is associated with preterm birth in Japanese women. The subjects were women who underwent Chlamydia trachomatis polymerase chain reaction testing during a singleton pregnancy and delivered after the 22nd week of gestation at a tertiary care center between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2016. We compared Chlamydia-positive (n=259) and Chlamydia-negative (n=1,974) groups and evaluated the pregnancy outcomes. The Chlamydia-positive group had a higher rate of public assistance coverage, smoking during pregn...

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the results of this systematic review, the POC test based on antigen detection has suboptimal sensitivity but good specificity. Performance of this test translates, on average, to a 52% chance of mistakenly indicating absence of infection and a 2% chance of mistakenly pointing to the presence of this condition. Because of its deleterious consequences for reproductive health, and considering the current availability of safe and effective interventions to treat C trachomatis infection, the POC screening strategy should not be based on a rapid diagnostic test for antigen detection. Research in this topic...

Study aimed to quantitate the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IFN-γ, IL-8) and Cox-2 in endometrial curettage tissue (ECT) of Spontaneous Aborters (SA). SA (n = 135) and 120 age-matched controls were enrolled from SJH, New Delhi, India. PCR was perf...

In 2018, the number of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) reported in the United States reached an all-time high. This is worrisome for many reasons. Having an STI can raise risks for HIV, infertility, pregnancy complications, and infant death. Fortunately, all of these outcomes can be avoided if people receive appropriate treatment. What are STIs? STIs are illnesses caused by microorganisms passed between people during sex. An STI can affect anyone who is exposed to it. Syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia are the most common bacterial infections. Trichomoniasis, a protozoan infection, is also diagnosed freque...
