We need to consider collateral damage to resistomes when we decide how frequently to screen for chlamydia/gonorrhoea in preexposure prophylaxis cohorts

Abstract

: Numerous preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) guidelines recommend three-monthly screening for gonorrhoea and chlamydia. To quantify the risk of antimicrobial resistance this may induce, we conducted a literature review of the incidence of gonorrhoea and chlamydia in PrEP studies that conducted 3-site, 3-monthly screening. We found that screening could result in macrolide consumption rates that exceed those in high macrolide consumption populations where consumption has been strongly associated with macrolide resistance.
