In the early summer of 2012 and 2013, mass mortalities of blood ark shell (Scapharca [Anadara] broughtonii), broodstocks were reported in several hatcheries on the coast of northern China.

1. This meta-analysis has consistently demonstrated higher STI and viral hepatitis burden among FSWs in South Central and Southwest China compared to other Chinese regions. : The objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV infection, and sexual risk behaviors among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Jiangsu Province, China. 1Key Laboratory of Animal Models and Human Disease Mechanisms, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, Yunnan, 650223, China.

Retracted: Herpes simplex virus 2 infection in HIV seropositive individuals in Tamil Nadu, India. The combination of recreational drug use and sexual risk-taking promotes transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as syphilis and herpes.1 Numerous studies have shown a high prevalence of recreational drug abuse among men who have sex with men, especially among male CSWs.2 One study suggested a significant level of drug use among male CSWs3 may lead to higher numbers of sex partners and sexual encounters. We conducted a cross-sectional study in seven large Chinese cities including Kunming, Shenyang, Jinan, Changsha, Zhengzhou, Nanjing and Shanghai from June 2012 to June 2013. For almost every given year, sexually transmitted diseases prove to be a menace in most countries. Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpes-virus (KSHV), also known as Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is etiologically linked to the development of Kaposi’s sarcoma(KS), the most commonly found cancers in patients with AIDS. This is a short preview of the document. To our knowledge, this is the first study to analyze LTFU incidence and assess the impact of LTFU on incidence assessment in a longitudinal study of FSWs in China.

ABSTRACT: In the early summer of 2012 and 2013, mass mortalities of blood ark shell (Scapharca [Anadara] broughtonii), broodstocks were reported in several hatcheries on the coast of northern China. This study investigated HIV and syphilis incidence among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Beijing, China. The purpose of this review was to assess the prevalence of unprotected anal intercourse (UAI) among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China.

Objectives In China, considerable stigma surrounds sexual activity, contraception use and abortion among young unmarried women, and sex work remains illegal. Skin lesions are often associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, reflecting the immunocompromised status of the individual. HIV testing is the first point of HIV treatment entry for HIV-infected individuals and an avenue to engage persons at risk in prevention.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at greatest risk of HIV infection in the United States, with incidence rates comparable to some regions in Sub-Saharan Africa. A cross-sectional study was conducted among truck drivers in Tongling of Anhui Province. Abstract: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is a commonly occurring human pathogen worldwide. A cross-sectional survey was conducted to determine seroprevalence and correlates of coinfections of hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), Epstein-Bar virus (EBV), herpes simplex virus including type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients in China.

China has experienced an increasing epidemic of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. N2 – Background. Conceived and designed the experiments: X. Intriguing hallmarks of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) include its striking racial/ethnic and geographic variation, as well as its multifactorial etiology involving the interplay of environmental, viral, and genetic risk factors. 11. To elucidate and compare the seroprevalence of human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) among Chinese drug users, a cross-sectional study of 441 participants, was conducted in Shanghai, China, from 2012 through 2013.
