    St. Louis leads nation in cases of gonorrhea
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    11/08/2005

    St. Louis leads the nation in cases of gonorrhea, according to statistics released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The city ranked second in chlamydia and fifth in syphilis nationwide.

    St. Louis has long ranked high in cases of sexually transmitted diseases.

    The CDC report provided data on three STDs — gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia.

    Chlamydia is the most common of the three diseases, with a total of 930,000 cases reported last year. ?

    Gonorrhea hit an all-time low nationally last year, with about 330,000 cases reported. The national rate of 113.5 cases per 100,000 people was the lowest since the government started tracking cases in 1941.

    However, syphilis has been steadily increasing since it hit an all-time low in 2000. The rate of reported early-stage syphilis was 2.7 cases per 100,000 in 2004, up 29 percent since 2000.

    Chlamydia rates increased, possibly due to expanded and improved screening for the disease, the CDC said.

    The CDC said 2,440 cases of gonorrhea were reported in St. Louis in 2004, a rate of 734 cases per 100,000 people.

    Last year, 4,130 cases of chlamydia were reported, a rate of 1,358 cases for every 100,000 people.

    Less than 50 cases of syphilis were reported last year in St. Louis.

    Dr. Ronald Valdiserri, acting director of the CDC’s National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention, said STDs “pose a significant and ongoing threat to millions of Americans, especially young women, men who have sex with men and people of color.”[/b][/quote]
