Rates of three STDs in United States reach record high, CDC says

Image  CDC

The CDC announced Tuesday that 2.29 million cases of chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea had been diagnosed in the US throughout 2017-an increase of more than 200,000 cases over 2016. The CDC is concerned that such resistance could eventually extend to ceftriaxone, which would make the disease untreatable by any current antibiotic. This figure was boosted by a 45 percent increase among 15-24-year-old females.

Most STDs go undiagnosed and untreated, the CDC said, which can cause infertility, stillbirth and an increased risk of HIV. Primary and secondary syphilis are the most infectious stages of the disease.

Rates of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia have climbed for the fourth consecutive year in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday at the National STD Prevention Conference in Washington.

Gonorrhea diagnoses alone increased 67 percent and doubled among men. It's less clear whether dating apps, like Tinder, have contributed in some way to the spread of STDs, though some researchers think they have.

"There's really good science out there". "Certainly, there's a lot more we could do".

"The explosion in STDs comes on the heels of years of cutbacks in federal funding", Harvey said.

"State and local STD programs are working with effectively half the budget they had in the early 2000s", Harvey said. "If our representatives are serious about protecting American lives, they will provide adequate funding to address this crisis". However, 2017 saw the emergence of a "super gonorrhea" that is treatment resistant, and it's not inconceivable that the other diseases could evolve to resist antibiotics as well.

In 2015, the CDC began recommending that gonorrhea be treated with a single shot of ceftriaxone accompanied by an oral dose of azithromycin.

But gonorrhea appears to be developing new resistance against azithromycin, raising concerns that the dual therapy approach could crumble in the future. If that happens, a strain of gonorrhea could someday surface that would be resistant to ceftriaxone.
