Risk Factors for Congenital Syphilis Transmitted from Mother to Infant — Suzhou, China, 2011–2014   - In a cohort of mothers with recently diagnosed syphilis, migrant women and those who received a diagnosis at >36 gestational weeks were approximately five times and 25 times more likely, respectively, to deliver an infected baby than were nonmigrant women and those who received a diagnosis earlier in pregnancy. Every twofold increase of maternal nontreponemal or treponemal antibody titers doubled the odds of delivering an infected infant. (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR))

Notes from the Field: HIV Diagnoses Among Persons Who Inject Drugs — Northeastern Massachusetts, 2015–2018   - From 2000 to 2014, the number of annual diagnoses of HIV infection in Massachusetts declined 47%. In August 2016, however, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) received reports of five new HIV cases among persons who inject drugs from a single community health center in the City of Lawrence. On average, less than one case per month among persons who inject drugs had been reported in Lawrence during 2014–2015 from all providers. Surveillance identified additional cases of HIV infection among such persons linked to Lawrence and Lowell, in northeastern Massachusetts, during 2016–2017. In 2018, MDPH and CDC conducted an investigation to characterize the outbreak and recommend control measures. (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR))

Informal PrEP: an emerging need for nomenclature   - Different expressions are used to describe the process of informal access to antiretroviral drugs (eg, via the Internet or acquaintances) for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP): “informal use”, “informal PrEP”, “off-label PrEP”, “non-prescribed PrEP”, “DIY PrEP”, and “wild PrEP”. This lack of consistent nomenclature makes it difficult to develop an accurate understanding of the nature of the process and its public health implications. To improve consistency for future research and public health initiatives, this process should be referred to as informal PrEP. (The Lancet)
