BACKGROUND: Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) face higher rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) than the general population. The association between venues where sexual partners are met and STI transmission is dynamic and poorly understood, especially among those who use geosocial networking (GSN) apps. This study aimed to determine whether there is a difference in STI incidence between MSM who met their last sexual partner through a GSN app and MSM who met their last partner via other venues...

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people face pervasive health disparities and barriers to high-quality care. Adequate LGBT sexual health education for emerging health professionals is currently lacking. Clinical training programs and healthcare organisations are well poised to start addressing these disparities and affirming LGBT patients through curricula designed to cultivate core competencies in LBGT health as well as health care environments that welcome, include and protect LGBT patients, students and staff...

This article serves as one of the supplementary pieces of this special issue on "Mapping Queer Bioethics," in which we take a solipsistic turn to "map" the Journal of Homosexuality itself. Here, the author examines the journal's 2011 consensus recommendations for the prevention of LGBT suicide. Invoking the axiom approach of Eve Kosovsky Sedgwick's seminal Epistemology of the Closet, the author argues that merely offering practical guidelines at the level of the demonstrative and the instructive may not be sufficient models to address the urgency of suicide rates in LGBTQ youth populations...

PURPOSE: Many lesbian women experience stigma and discrimination from their healthcare providers as a result of their sexual orientation. Additionally, others avoid disclosure of their sexual orientation to their providers for fear of mistreatment. With the increasing number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) veterans seeking care from the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), it is important to understand lesbian veterans' experiences with stigma, discrimination, and disclosure of sexual orientation...

BACKGROUND: Prior studies have noted significant health disadvantages experienced by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) populations in the US. While several studies have identified that fears or experiences of stigma and disclosure of sexual orientation and/or gender identity to health care providers are significant barriers to health care utilization for LGBT people, these studies have concentrated almost exclusively on urban samples. Little is known about the impact of stigma specifically for rural LGBT populations, who may have less access to quality, LGBT-sensitive care than LGBT people in urban centers...

ABSTRACT Dr. Judith Bradford is a social science researcher who has been a key figure in the evolution of lesbian health research. With Caitlin Ryan, Judy was instrumental in creating the National Lesbian Health Care Survey (NLHCS) in the mid-1980s. After assuming the Directorship of the Survey and Evaluation Research Lab (SERL) at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), she became involved in the recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee process, which resulted in increased attention to lesbian health at the national level...

Young sexual minority males are among those at highest risk for HIV infection, yet we know relatively little about the impact of sexual identity development on HIV risk. This study used cross-sectional data to investigate factors associated with HIV-related sexual risk among a sample of sexual minority males (n = 156), ages 14 to 21 years, using an extended version of the information-motivation-behavioral skills (IMB) model tailored for this population. Path analysis results indicated that the extended model predicted a sizable amount of primary and secondary sexual risk (r (2) = ...

A femtosecond laser beam gene transduction (SG-LBGT) system is described as a novel and efficient method of intradermal (i.d.) nonviral gene delivery in mice by permeabilizing cells utilizing femtosecond laser pulses. Using this approach, significant gene expression and efficient dermal transduction lasting for >7 months were obtained. The ability of this new DNA gene transfer method to enhance genetic vaccination was tested in BALB/C mice. A single i.d. injection of a plasmid (10 microg) containing the hepatitis B virus (HBV) surface antigen (HBsAg), followed by pulses of laser, induced high titers of HBsAg-specific antibodies lasting for >210 days and increased levels of IgG1, IgG2a, IFNgamma, and IL-4, indicating the activation of both Th1 and Th2 cells...

This essay reflects on one dimension of the challenge of being a queer ethicist. Can we have norms/values without liberal assumptions that might undo the important contributions of queer theory? The reemergence of appeals to "citizenship" in lbgt and queer debates serves as illustrations of this question. Reading Weeks's Invented Moralities: Sexual Values in an Age of Uncertainty(1995), while considering various scholars who have engaged the issue of sexual citizenship since, enables me to illustrate some of the issues that emerge around ethics and queerness at this particular moment...

Phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-effected lymphocyte blastogenesis test (LBGT) in culture has been assessed by flow cytofluorometry in 63 normal subjects and in 160 patients suffering from various pulmonary diseases. An algorithm for the estimation of cellular distribution in accordance with the mitotic cycle stages is suggested, and a computer program for the analysis of the results, based on the mitotic cycle stages, has been compiled. The lymphocyte proliferative activities have been estimated with various PHA doses...

Analysis of some parameters of cell-mediated immunity (lymphocyte blastogenesis test--LBGT, T-rosette formation, B-rosette formation, leukocyte migration inhibition test--LMIT) in 106 patients with odontogenic phlegmons has lead the authors to a conclusion on the direct relationship between LBGT and LMIT depression and the disease severity. The detected relationship will be helpful in early diagnosis of grave forms of odontogenic phlegmons and conductive to timely start of immunocorrective therapy.

The authors analyze the specific features of the technique of lymphocyte blastogenesis test (LBGT) with whole blood and of interpreting its results in examinations of healthy donors, patients with hypogammaglobulinemia, chronic bronchitis or pneumonia, and bronchial asthma. The suggested LBGT variant is a sensitive and reproducible technique fit for assessing the immunity status, making use of small volumes (up to 0.1 ml) of the blood; it is recommended for clinical examinations and mass immunologic screenings...

Analysis of clinical and immunologic parallels in 200 patients with chronic pancreatitis has revealed that lymphocyte autosensitization to pancreatic tissue in the lymphocyte blastogenesis test (LBGT) is in high correlation with the frequency of the disease recurrences, and the severity of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency with the immune complex level. This permits recommending LBGT with pancreatic tissue antigen for the prediction of the condition recurrences, and measurements of the immune complexes level for the prediction of the developing exocrine pancreatic insufficiency...
