Active Ingredients: Doxycycline
Hawaii was also the first state to identify an isolate with high-level resistance to azithromycin. In addition, the Hawaii Department of Health HDOH has maintained an active state-wide gonococcal isolate surveillance program since the early 1970 s.
All gonococcal isolates in Hawaii have had antibiotic susceptibility testing by the state laboratory since the early 1990 s.
We report on a cluster of N. Four of the 8 isolates were urethral specimens submitted to GISP for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and surveillance.
Two isolates obtained from the same patient were sent for analysis as the Etest results differed and a coinfection with 2 separate strains was entertained.
Agar dilution antimicrobial susceptibility test results were used to define resistance or decreased susceptibility. These estimates did not consider the costs of adverse reproductive outcomes including miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, infertility, or neonatal infections.
They also did not consider indirect costs eg, productivity loss or intangible costs eg, pain and suffering. Hence the true economic burden is substantially higher. This perspective will focus on HPV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.
The latest CDC data from reveal that only about one third of 13—17 year old females have completed the 3 dose immunization series.
Coverage rates for males are even lower: only 6. Why is coverage so low in the US? Cost was listed as the most frequently reported barrier to HPV vaccination in a recent systematic review.
Well-designed studies of vaccinated girls have not substantiated these concerns. Clin Microbiol Rev.
