Description

Description of data capture This study was nested within a 12 month microbicide feasibility study of 970 HIV-negative women aged 18–44 years working in bars, hotels, and other food and recreational facilities in the three towns of Geita, Shinyanga and Kahama in northwestern Tanzania from 2008-2010. Participants enrolled in the sub-study were followed up three times a week for 4 weeks (12 visits total). At enrolment, interviews were carried out to obtain information about sexual behaviour, vaginal practices, current contraception, and STI symptoms. On the first and last visit (visits 1 & 12), a clinical and colposcopic examination were performed; cervical and vaginal swabs were collected to test for vaginal pH and reproductive tract infections (Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis, bacterial vaginosis, and yeast); and a CVL was obtained for the detection of Herpes simplex virus, types 1 and 2 (HSV), prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to measure seminal plasma exposure in the last 48 hours, soluble immune proteins, haemoglobin and white blood cells (WBCs). During visits 2 to 11, a shortened interview was conducted to obtain updated sexual behaviours and intravaginal practices. A brief clinical examination was performed to obtain vaginal swabs for testing vaginal pH, bacterial vaginosis and yeast, and a CVL for the detection of HSV, PSA, soluble immune proteins, haemoglobin and WBCs. Urine was collected at every visit to test for pregnancy and menstrual cycle phase. If a woman was menstruating, no genital samples were obtained on that visit. No blood samples were collected; however laboratory data from the main cohort on HSV antibody status, HIV status and syphilis results were available for the statistical analysis and methods have been reported in a previous study. Colposcopy was carried out by trained clinicians according to the CONRAD/WHO revised manual for the Standardization of Colposcopy for the Evaluation of Vaginal Products
