WASHINGTON, June 7 (Xinhua) -- An influential U.S. panel on Tuesday recommended syphilis screening for nonpregnant persons who are at increased risk of infection, including people with HIV and men who have sex with men, amid a rise in cases of the disease.

The recommendation complemented a 2009 recommendation in which the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended screening for syphilis infection in all pregnant women.

Syphilis is an infectious disease that can be transmitted sexually between partners. Syphilis may initially present as a sore on the skin, and without treatment, can become more severe.

The later, more severe stage of the disease may cause inflammation throughout the body, which can lead to cardiovascular or organ dysfunction.

Syphilis has been on the rise in the U.S. since 2000, with about 20,000 cases being reported in 2014, the highest number in over 10 years in the nation.

""Clinicians play an important role in helping to control the rising rates of syphilis infection and should focus on screening those at increased risk,"" Ann Kurth, a member of the USPSTF and dean of the Yale School of Nursing, said in a statement.

According to the USPSTF, people at the highest risk for syphilis infection are men who have sex with men and people living with HIV.

The USPSTF also recommended that clinicians consider their patients' sexual behaviors and networks as well as local rates of infection when deciding whom to screen.

In addition, the panel said everyone can reduce their risk for syphilis infection by consistent and correct use of condoms, limiting sexual activity to a mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who does not have syphilis, or by abstaining from sex.

The panel's recommendation has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The USPSTF is an independent, volunteer panel of experts that makes recommendations about the effectiveness of specific preventive care services such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medications. Enditem

HARARE Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey , Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe told his countrymen on live television on Sunday evening that he will chair the ruling party's congress in December to resolve problems afflicting the ZANU-PF.

In his address from the State House, Mugabe Authentic Alvin Kamara Jersey , flanked by army generals, acknowledged the presence of ills afflicting his party and said he would chair the ZANU-PF's congress next month to resolve the problems once and for all.

"Among the issues discussed (with the army generals) is that relating to our economy Authentic Marcus Williams Jersey , which as we all know is going through a difficult patch. Of greater concern to our commanders are the well-founded fears that the lack of unity and commonness of purpose in both party and government was translating into perceptions of inattentiveness to the economy.

"Public spates between high ranking officials in the party and government, exacerbated by multiple conflicting messages from both the party and government Authentic Ryan Ramczyk Jersey , made the criticisms leveled against us inescapable," Mugabe said.

He said some of the conflicts in the party were being caused by inter-generational conflict which he said must be resolved and harmonized through merging of old established players as they embrace and welcome new rules.

"Indeed all these matters will be discussed and settled at the forthcoming congress within the framework of a clear radioman that seeks to resolve once and for all any omissions or contradictions that have affected our party negatively Authentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey ," Mugabe said.

"The congress is due in a few weeks from now and I will preside over its processes, which must not be prepossessed by any acts calculated to undermine or to compromise the outcomes in the eyes of the public Authentic Archie Manning Jersey ," he said.

Mugabe said the military operation last Wednesday was triggered by concerns arising from their reading of the state of affairs in the country and the party.

"Whatever the pros and cons of the way they went about registering those concerns, I as the president of Zimbabwe and their commander -in-chief do acknowledge the issues they have drawn my attention to and I do believe that these were raised in the spirit of honesty and out of deep and patriotic concern of the stability of our nation and for the welfare of our people."

Mugabe said in his meeting with the commanders they underscored the need for the party to collectively start process that return the nation to normalcy.

Mugabe said the military operation did not amount to.
