Trends in sexually transmitted disease incidence in Papua New Guinea

, : Trends in sexually transmitted disease incidence in Papua New Guinea. Papua and New Guinea Medical Journal 27(3-4): 145-157

A retrospective study of gonorrhoea and syphilis from Health Department records was carried out in Papua New Guinea. During the ten-year period (1974-1983) 101,636 new cases of gonorrhoea and 34,422 of syphilis were reported among the general population of Papua New Guinea. The incidence of both sexually transmitted disease have significantly (P less than 0.005) increased over the decade despite the introduction and implementation of the National Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Control Programme. Some which contribute to the present increase in sexually transmitted diseases are segregation of health and non-health services, insufficient staff training and increased immigration to urban centres.

The possible influence of diabetes on the higher mnestic and cognitive functions has been investigated. The P300 wave latency, an endogenous electrophysiological event, was explored and compared with the multimodal short-latency evoked potential (...

A review of complications in a series of 560 consecutive craniotomies for surgery of epilepsy shows the mortality to be nil and the morbidity very low. Results on the seizure tendency for temporal resections are presented with emphasis on extent a...

The majority of the known transthyretin (TTR) variants are associated with amyloidosis, but there are also variants associated with euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia and others are apparently nonpathogenic. TTR Met 119 is a nonpathogenic variant found t...
