An effective treatment for recurrent bacterial vaginosis Women with recurrent vaginal infections often take regular, repeated doses of antimicrobials to prevent further episodes. Unfortunately, metronidazole treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV) may lead to vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). In a randomised placebo-controlled trial in Kenya and the USA, HIV-negative women with either of these infections or trichomoniasis were enrolled in a study of a combined miconazole/metronidazole vaginal suppository, given for five consecutive days every month for a year.1 The intervention reduced the risk of laboratory-proven BV, the most common vaginal infection in the study, by 35%. Unfortunately, there was no effect on subsequent rates of either VVC or trichomoniasis, but it is reassuring that the tre...

Syphilis, has always been known the "protean" disease, capable of manifesting in many forms and deceiving physicians as to its true nature. It confused Hunter, whose inoculation experiments1 were the forerunner of the Tuskegee and Guatemala experiments2—it is disputed whether he experimented on himself, but not that he inoculated others in support of a unitary theory of gonorrhoea and syphilis. The huge impact of syphilis on pre-penicillin public health together with its place at the centre of moral debate, and the difficulty of diagnosis made it central to paradigm shifts in the philosophy of science as described in Fleck's seminal work "The Genesis and Development of a Scientific Fact",3 first published in German in 1935. Many developed countries have seen a huge resurgence of syph...

Addressing structural challenges for the sexual health and well-being of Indigenous women in Australia

According to the most recent national data in Australia, chlamydia and gonorrhoea were 3 and 18 times more likely to be diagnosed in Aboriginal populations, respectively, compared with the non-Indigenous population, with 16–19 years old Indigenous Australians carrying the greatest burden of these infections.1 Reports confirm that almost half this age group living in remote communities has one or more of gonorrhoea, chlamydia and trichomonas infections.2 In addition, significant increases in the prevalence of chronic hepatitis B and higher rates of hepatitis C acquired through burgeoning injecting drug use, combined with high rates of chronic disease, means there is a significant burden of disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that costs individuals, communit...
