Partner-oriented services and Health Information and Communication technology (HICT) in the forms of mHealth (eg, smartphone applications), eHealth (eg, interactive websites), telemedicine, and social media play an important and growing role in HIV prevention. Accordingly, the present study sought to describe: (1) the primary and secondary HIV prevention services available in Hawai'i, (2) the prevention services that are available for gay male couples and partners, and (3) the prevention services that use HICT...

The Republic of Kiribati, Central Pacific, has the largest tuberculosis epidemic in the region. There is a national tuberculosis control program, which has used smear microscopy for acid-fast bacilli as the main diagnostic tool for many years. In 2015, an Xpert MTB/RIF machine was procured and became functional within the tuberculosis hospital. The aim of this cross-sectional study, using routinely collected data, was to determine the effects of introducing Xpert MTB/RIF on laboratory smear microscopy practices and the pattern of registered tuberculosis cases...

Mastocytosis is a rare process involving the activation and accumulation of clonal mast cells categorized by cutaneous or systemic involvement. Although the diagnosis of cutaneous disease can be straightforward and confirmed via skin biopsy, systemic disease mimics more common disease processes making diagnosis a challenge. The widespread physiologic distribution of mast cells causes a variety of symptoms with aberrant expression including fatigue, headache, depression, dyspnea, dyspepsia, nausea, and abdominal pain...

The literature suggests that women of different races are more or less likely to use certain contraceptive methods and patient race can influence which contraceptive recommendations a provider makes. To explore whether health care providers treat individuals of different races differently, we conducted a preliminary investigation on whether medical students recommended different contraceptive methods for hypothetical patients presenting with the same clinical features who only varied by race. Third- and fourth-year medical students (n=103) at the University of Hawai'i completed an online survey...

Cori-Ann M Hirai, Bliss Kaneshiro, Mark K Hiraoka
The primary objective was to determine the theoretical number of colposcopies at a resident clinic if the 2012 American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) guidelines were applied. The secondary objective was to determine the actual number of colposcopies before and after the ASCCP guidelines. This was a two-part descriptive study. The first part applied the 2012 ASCCP guidelines to all pre-guideline colposcopy cases at a single resident clinic. These theoretical results were then compared to the actual number of colposcopies...

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (BCCEDP) was first introduced in Palau in 1997. The program's aim is to recruit and screen women for early detection of breast and cervical cancers. An assessment of this screening program was conducted to evaluate its effectiveness, including impact on stage of diagnosis and survival time of patients diagnosed with breast and cervical cancers through both screening and clinical diagnosis. A retrospective cohort study using secondary data from 2004-2013 was conducted...

Anemia can be an indicator of poor nutrition and health, and it can have significant consequences. Children are disproportionately affected by anemia. This comprehensive review summarizes the available literature on anemia prevalence in young children in the islands of the Oceania region. The anemia prevalence, the criteria used for diagnosis, the date the data was reported, and the types of samples collected were reviewed. Anemia prevalence estimates were reported for eighteen of the Pacific Island Jurisdictions...

In Hawai'i, lung cancer is among the top cancers diagnosed and a leading cause of death. Despite current understanding and modern surgery, radiology, and chemotherapy techniques, the survival of those suffering from lung cancer remains low. Current anticancer drugs have poor tumor tissue selectivity and toxicity issues that contribute to their overall low efficacy, detrimental effects to normal tissues, and drug resistance. A potential way of mitigating cancer is through RNA interference (RNAi) by the delivery of small interfering RNA (siRNA) to target select proteins or genes involved in cancer progression, known as oncoproteins or oncogenes, respectively...

Hypertension is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. Blood pressure reduction and control are associated with reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. To achieve optimal reduction and control, reliable and valid methods for blood pressure measurement are needed. Office based measurements can result in 'white coat' hypertension, which is when a patient's blood pressure in a clinical setting is higher than in other settings, or 'masked' hypertension, which occurs when a patient's blood pressure is normal in a clinical setting, but elevated outside the clinical setting...

The birth plan was developed as a way for pregnant women to communicate their desires and expectations for labor and delivery. Standardized birth plans have been used by some birth facilities as a communication tool. In this quality improvement project, we sought to describe communication, trust, and satisfaction scores after delivery in a group of patients who used a standardized birth plan. All pregnant women at 24 or more weeks of gestation were asked to complete a short, standardized birth plan. Communication, trust, and satisfaction were assessed before and after delivery...

Rates of chlamydia (CT) and gonorrhea (GC) have risen for the first time in the United States since 2006. Certain population groups are disproportionately affected by these sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as HIV. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and professional societies have published screening guidelines for these STIs for women under the age of 25. We aimed to quantify physician adherence to GC/CT and HIV screening guidelines and to determine demographic factors associated with GC/CT and HIV screening recommendations among women 14-25 years old in Honolulu, Hawai'i...

Pathology specimen cross-contamination is a rare phenomenon in diagnostic pathology. Such "floaters" may result in delayed, missed or erroneous diagnoses. We describe the case of a patient with benign granuloma of the lung initially misdiagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma due to a "floater."
