We examined data collected by VDH related to clinic encounters, billing, and revenue from STD clinics statewide. Implementing insurance billing created a new revenue stream for local health departments.

BACKGROUND: Anogenital warts (AGW) are a common therapeutic challenge. All therapies are associated with burning, pain and frustrating high rate of recurrence. The search for a new alternative continues. Recently a diterpene ester extracted from the Euphorbia Peplus plant (Ingenol mebutate (IM)) has been shown to possess activity against anogenital warts. OBJECTIVE: To compare and evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of topical .05% ingenol gel with another herbal extract medication ( to...

BACKGROUND: The performance of a statewide HIV rapid test algorithm (RTA) in a low prevalence setting (.71%) was examined over three years. METHODS: An initial rapid screening by HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo test (RT#1) with Ab verification using a second, different rapid test (RT#2)were conducted. Clinic referral was immediate for antigen ONLY positive screens. Antibody positive screens were confirmed by RT#2. Specimens were collected following discordant RTA results, (initially Ab-POS by RT#1, but nega...
BACKGROUND: Geenius HIV 1/2 Supplemental Assay (Geenius; Bio-Rad Laboratories) is the only Food and Drug Administration-approved HIV-1/HIV-2 antibody differentiation test for the second step in the HIV laboratory testing algorithm. We characterized the occurrence of true HIV-1 and HIV-2 infections as well as false results in 6 US clinical laboratories using Geenius. METHODS: We examined routine HIV testing outcome data from the time the laboratories began using the algorithm with Geenius until S...

BACKGROUND: US guidelines recommend routine HIV screening of all adults and adolescents at least once. The population-level impact of this strategy is unclear and will vary across the country. METHODS: We constructed a static linear model to estimate the optimal ages and incremental impact of adding one-time routine HIV screening to risk-based, prenatal, symptom-based, and partner notification testing. Using surveillance data and published studies, we parameterized the model at the national leve...

Identifying pathogen-specific signs or symptoms of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) could improve syndromic management accuracy. We evaluated NGU signs and symptoms in 220 men with single-pathogen infections (Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Trichomonas vaginalis, or Ureaplasma urealyticum) or idiopathic urethritis. No individual sign or symptom accurately predicted the infectious etiology.
