Dear Patrons,

We have added 17 new links have been added since in May.

For Professionals:

1. A significant change has been made to the Centers for Disease Control's guidelines for treatment of sexually transmitted infections; that of NOT recommending fluoroquinolones for treatment of gonorrhea. Please see the updated guideline for new recommendations. The CDC also released an updated guideline for HIV treatment for adults and adolescents.
