UI: 17149130 "This article reviews the 2006 releases from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the 2004 National Surveillance Data for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), the 2006 STDs Treatment Guidelines, the new developments in testing for genital herpes virus (HSV) and human papillomavirus (HPV), and the recent recommendations for the HPV vaccine." "With 50 million persons in the United States infected, the herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is the most prevalent STD. However, the majority of infected persons are unaware or have not been diagnosed. Patients transmit HSV when symptomatic lesions are present or during episodes of asymptomatic viral shedding. Consequently, approximately one million people acquire HSV-2 each year."
