3 DISCLAIMER I will be using some medical terms in this presentation, which may be confusing. I will try my best to explain what these mean in simple terms when I catch them. If you are unsure of the meaning of a term or if you have any questions, please ask! If I cannot answer your question at the time, we ll put it in a parking lot and revisit it....with the help of Google.

4 Scope of the Problem STDs are common 19 million new cases annually in the U.S. 1 in 2 sexually active young people will get an STD by the age of 25 Young people account for half (50 percent) of all new STIs, although they represent just 25 percent of the sexually experienced population Many STDs are asymptomatic Many STDs are undiagnosed, untreated, or incurable Complications include infertility, chronic pain, prenatal complications and illness in newborns, severe illness, cancer, and death Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

5 HPV, HSV NON REPORTABLE STDS

6 Herpes (HSV 1/HSV 2) Estimated 776,000 new cases annually (CDC) Prevalence: 1 in 6 persons years old Asymptomatic or mild symptoms 81.1% of people with HSV infection are unaware of infection Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

7 Age Adjusted Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 Seroprevalence According to the Lifetime Number of Sex Partners, by Race/Ethnicity and Sex on NHANES in Xu F et al. (2006). JAMA, 296(8):

8 NHANES HSV1&2 Seroprevalence 100 HSV Serop revalence ( % ) HSV HSV HSV HSV HSV HSV HSV HSV or or >=70 Age Group (Years) Johnson et al. NEJM 321:7-12, 321, 1989 Schillinger et al. STD 31:753-60, 2004 Fleming et al. NEJM 337: , 1997 Xu et al. JAMA 296:964-73, 2006 Xu et al. MMWR 59:456-9, 2010 Bradley et al. JID 209:325-33, % decline in HSV1 seroprevalence between early 200o s and late 200o s.

9 HSV Screening Type specific HSV serology testing Patients presenting for STD evaluation especially if multiple partners, HIV infected and MSM at risk of HIV Not recommended for routine prenatal or universal screening Viral detection by culture and PCR are the preferred tests for persons presenting with Genital Ulcer Diseases All patients with genital ulcers should be evaluated with a serologic test for syphilis and a diagnostic evaluation for genital herpes Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

10 HSV Treatment All patients with initial genital HSV should receive treatment Episodic therapy for recurrent HSV Multiple regimens shorten course of recurrence if started early Long term suppressive therapy safety and efficacy documented For more information, see CDC STD Treatment Guidelines Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

11 Human Papilloma Virus Estimated annual incidence of sexually transmitted HPV infection is 14.1 million More than 40 HPV types can infect the genital tract, divided in to two types based on cancer association Low risk types (nononcogenic) associated with genital warts and mild Pap test abnormalities (Type 6 & 11) High risk types (oncogenic) associated with moderate to severe Pap test abnormalities, cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer, and other cancers (Type 16 & 18) Most genital HPV infections are transient, asymptomatic, and have no clinical consequences. Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

12 HPV Prevalence of High risk and Low risk Types Among Females Aged Years; NHANES, From:

37 Chlamydia trachomatis & Neisseria gonorrhoeae SCREENING FOR CT/GC

38 CT Screening Recommendations: Females Sexually active women age <26 years: annually >26 years old: if risk factors are present Repeat re testing of all women 3 4 months after treatment for C. trachomatis infection, or when they next present for care within 12 months (especially for adolescents). Pregnancy: Screen all at first prenatal visit. At third trimester if <25 years or at increased risk Centers for Disease Control. (2013). 38

39 CT Screening Recommendations: Males Insufficient evidence to recommend routine screening in most men Should be considered in clinical settings with high prevalence of CT (i.e. teen clinics, correctional facilities, STD clinics) MSM (men who have sex with men) Urethral testing for insertive MSM intercourse in preceding year Rectal, oropharyngeal testing for men who indicate receptive MSM sex in preceding year Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

40 GC Screening Wide screening is not recommended.** USPSTF recommends screening all sexually active women for GC if they re at increased risk of infection. MSM same as chlamydia: Triple dip : Urethral testing for insertive MSM intercourse in preceding year; Rectal, oropharyngeal testing for men who indicate receptive MSM sex in preceding year Pregnancy: Screen all pregnant women at the first prenatal visit. Pregnant women aged <25 years and those at increased risk for chlamydia should be screened again in the third trimester. Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

41 Chlamydia trachomatis & Neisseria gonorrhoeae TREATMENT & FOLLOW UP

42 Treatment of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Chlamydia Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose, OR Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice daily for 7 days Gonorrhea Ceftriaxone 250mg IM once PLUS Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose (preferred), OR Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice daily for 7 days Centers for Disease Control. (2013). 42

43 Current CT/GC Re screening Recommendations All women and men with CT or GC should be retested ~3 months after initial treatment Re screening should occur whenever patient returns to clinic (regardless of reason for visit), anytime within 1 12 months post treatment Especially adolescents Test of cure is not recommended, except in pregnancy (for CT only) Centers for Disease Control. (2013).

44 GC Follow Up After Treatment A test of cure is not recommended if recommended regimen is administered A test of cure is recommended if an alternative regimen is administered (in 1 week) If treatment failure suspected, or if symptoms persist, perform culture for N. gonorrhoeae Any gonococci isolated should be tested for antimicrobial susceptibility at site of exposure Repeat testing in 3 months Centers for Disease Control. (2013). 44

45 Partner Management Sex partners should be evaluated, tested, and treated if they had sexual contact with the patient during the 60 days preceding the onset of symptoms or diagnosis of chlamydia. Most recent sex partner should be evaluated and treated even if the time of the last sexual contact was >60 days before symptom onset or diagnosis. Abstain from sexual intercourse until partners are treated and for 7 days after a single dose of azithromycin or until completion of a 7 day regimen. Centers for Disease Control. (2013). 45

62 Good News! With the passage of the ACA, there are a number of preventive health services that are available with no copay or coinsurance to the patient, including HIV/STD screening and prevention counseling Un or under insured at risk youth may qualify for no or low cost testing at certain health sites (funded by Maine CDC)

63 Patient Counseling Study from 2004 showed that patients were satisfied with their care if they had 15 minutes face to face with practitioner Most felt that a follow up visit was helpful to answer questions and clarify key points Much of in the initial information given was not retained 48 hours after visit. Patrick et al. (2004). Sexually Transmitted Infections, 80: 192 7

64 PUBLIC HEALTH RESPONSE TO STDS

65 Public Health Interventions Partner Services Patient Delivered Partner Therapy (Expedited Partner Therapy) Biomedical (PEP/PrEP) Outreach Education

66 Partner Services Services which are offered to people infected with a HIV/STD and their sex or needle sharing partners Locate and notify partners who have been exposed Provide risk reduction counseling for infected individuals Facilitate testing of exposed individuals Follow up on correct treatment of diagnosed individuals

67 Partner Notification Process Patient tests positive Order of priority HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea Chlamydia: Females: <19, pregnant, or more than one positive in past year Males < 24, or more than one positive in past year Provider elicits partner information and is reported to MCDC If no partners identified by provider, DIS contacts patient to elicit partner info

68 Partner Notification Process If partners identified, DIS contacts partner to: Inform exposure to STD Educate on risk reduction Provide information on testing location If partner identifies site they will get tested at, DIS will look for/contact site to see if partner has been tested DIS can request partner receive prophylactic treatment from provider

69 Expedited Partner Therapy EPT is a public health strategy that allows health care providers to give STD diagnosed patients medication and/or prescriptions to deliver to his/her sex partner(s) without a prior medical evaluation or clinical assessment of those partners. Multiple studies have found EPT to decrease rates of CT/GC reinfection and increase the number of sex partners reported to be treated for CT/GC Maine Rules are in the process of approval.
