Pilot Testing the Feasibility of a Game Intervention Aimed at Improving Help Seeking and Coping Among Sexual and Gender Minority Youth: Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial.

JMIR Res Protoc 2019 Feb 15;8(2):e12164. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, United States.

Background: Sexual and gender minority youth (SGMY; eg, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth) experience myriad substance use and mental health disparities compared with their cisgender (nontransgender) heterosexual peers. Despite much research showing these disparities are driven by experiences of bullying and cyberbullying victimization, few interventions have aimed to improve the health of bullied SGMY. One possible way to improve the health of bullied SGMY is via a Web-accessible game intervention. Read More

Participatory praxis as an imperative for health-related stigma research.

BMC Med 2019 Feb 15;17(1):32. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Uganda Youth Coalition on Adolescent SRHR and HIV, Busia, Uganda.

Background: Participatory praxis is increasingly valued for the reliability, validity, and relevance of research results that it fosters. Participatory methods become an imperative in health-related stigma research, where the constitutive elements of stigma, healthcare settings, and research each operate on hierarchies that push those with less social power to the margins.

Discussion: Particularly for people who are stigmatized, participatory methods balance the scales of equity by restructuring power relationships. Read More

Psychosocial Correlates of HIV Testing Frequency Among Men Who Have Sex with Men in Guangzhou, China.

AIDS Behav 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

We examined sociodemographic and psychosocial factors associated with HIV testing patterns in the past 2 years among 492 HIV-negative men who have sex men (MSM) at an HIV testing center in Guangzhou, China. MSM who tested for HIV frequently were more likely to be older, reside in Guangzhou, and have higher monthly income. Compared with MSM who tested frequently, MSM who never tested were less likely to report that their sexual partner(s) had ever received HIV tests or that their good friends had ever received HIV tests, and were less likely to report having an HIV-positive gay friend or ever discussing HIV with sexual partners; they were more likely to report perceiving barriers to HIV testing.

Loss of BCL9/9l suppresses Wnt driven tumourigenesis in models that recapitulate human cancer.

Nat Commun 2019 Feb 13;10(1):723. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, Garscube Estate, Switchback Road, Glasgow, G61 1BD, UK.

Different thresholds of Wnt signalling are thought to drive stem cell maintenance, regeneration, differentiation and cancer. However, the principle that oncogenic Wnt signalling could be specifically targeted remains controversial. Here we examine the requirement of BCL9/9l, constituents of the Wnt-enhanceosome, for intestinal transformation following loss of the tumour suppressor APC. Read More

PARP Inhibitors: Extending Benefit Beyond BRCA Mutant Cancers.

Clin Cancer Res 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Investigational Cancer Therapeutics (Phase I Program), University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

A mounting body of evidence now indicates that PARP inhibitors have the potential to be used as a foundation for both monotherapy and combination strategies across a wide spectrum of molecular backgrounds and tumor types. While PARP inhibitors as a class display many similarities, critical differences in structure can translate into differences in tolerability and antitumor activity that have important implications for the clinic. Furthermore, while PARP inhibitors have demonstrated a clear role in treating tumors with underlying homologous recombination deficiencies, there is now biological and early clinical evidence to support their use in other molecular subsets of cancer, including tumors associated with high levels of replication stress such as small cell lung cancer.

Understanding and treating opioid use disorders in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer populations.

Subst Abus 2019 Feb 13:1-5. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

a Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School , Massachusetts , USA.

Although little is known about the specific burden of the opioid epidemic on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) populations, there is evidence to suggest that opioid use disorders are disproportionately prevalent in the LGBTQ community. In this commentary, we present an overview of the current state of evidence on opioid use and misuse among LGBTQ-identified people in the United States and suggest ways to adapt behavioral health interventions to the specific needs of this population. Programs that integrate behavioral health with primary care, address minority stress, and use a trauma-informed approach have the most potential to produce effective, long-term benefits for LGBTQ-identified people with opioid use disorders.

A latent class approach to identify multi-risk profiles associated with phylogenetic clustering of recent hepatitis C virus infection in Australia and New Zealand from 2004 to 2015.

J Int AIDS Soc 2019 Feb;22(2):e25222

Kirby Institute, UNSW, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Introduction: Over the last two decades, the incidence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection among men who have sex with men (MSM) living with HIV began increasing in post-industrialized countries. Little is known about transmission of acute or recent HCV, in particular among MSM living with HIV co-infection, which creates uncertainty about potential for reinfection after HCV treatment. Using phylogenetic methods, clinical, epidemiological and molecular data can be combined to better understand transmission patterns. Read More

Negative Attitudes Toward Same-Sex Behavior Inventory: An Internalized Homonegativity Measure for Research with Bisexual, Gay, and other Non-Gay Identified Men who have Sex with Men.

Psychol Sex Orientat Gend Divers 2018 Jun;5(2):156-168

Department of Sociomedical Sciences, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA.

Substantial evidence exists about the negative role of internalized homonegativity on the health and well-being of lesbian women and gay men. However, existing measures of internalized homonegativity assume a gay or lesbian sexual identity ("I wish I wasn't gay") and therefore may be inappropriate for non-gay identified individuals, including bisexual people. Therefore, we developed and tested the psychometric properties of the Negative Attitudes Towards Same-Sex Behavior Inventory (NATSBI) which was designed to assess one's negative attitudes towards their same-sex behavior, regardless of their self-identification.

Discussing Transgender Topics within Gay-Straight Alliances: Factors that Could Promote More Frequent Conversations.

Int J Transgend 2018 7;19(2):119-131. Epub 2018 Mar 7.

New York University.

Background: Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) have potential to facilitate conversations on transgender and gender diversity issues among members. We examined how frequently GSA members discussed transgender and gender diversity topics within GSAs, whether GSAs varied from one another in the extent to which these conversations occurred, and identified factors that distinguished which members and GSAs discussed such topics more often than others.

Methods: Participants were 295 members of 33 high school GSAs in the state of Massachusetts who completed surveys that assessed their experiences within their GSA. Read More

Can conscientious objection lead to eugenic practices against LGBT individuals?

Bioethics 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Allied Health Sciences, School of Health and Social Care, London South Bank University, London, UK.

In a recent article in this journal, Abram Brummett argues that new and future assisted reproductive technologies will provide challenging ethical questions relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. Brummett notes that it is likely that some clinicians may wish to conscientiously object to offering assisted reproductive technologies to LGBT couples on moral or religious grounds, and argues that such appeals to conscience should be constrained. We argue that Brummett's case is unsuccessful because he: does not adequately interact with his opponents' views; equivocates on the meaning of 'natural'; fails to show that the practice he opposes is eugenic in any non-trivial sense; and fails to justify and explicate the relevance of the naturalism he proposes.

Differences in Substance Use Disparities Across Age Groups in a National Cross-Sectional Survey of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Adults.

LGBT Health 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

3 RAND Corporation, Santa Monica, California.

Purpose: Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) adults have elevated rates of substance use (SU) relative to heterosexual adults, yet the extent to which these disparities vary across age groups is unknown. Using national survey data, we test for age group differences in lifetime and recent SU disparities among LGB adults.

Methods: Using data on 67,354 adults (including 4868 LGB adults) from the 2015 and 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), we examined LGB disparities for measures of lifetime and recent use of cigarettes, marijuana, and illicit drugs. Read More

Weight-based victimization among sexual and gender minority adolescents: Findings from a diverse national sample.

Pediatr Obes 2019 Feb 6:e12514. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Human Development and Family Studies, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA.

Objectives: Children and adolescents with overweight and obesity are vulnerable to weight-based victimization. Research on weight-based victimization and sexual identity have been largely isolated from one another; little is known about the nature of weight-based victimization in sexual and gender minority (SGM: eg, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) youth. Our study is the first to examine the nature, extent, and sources of weight-based victimization in a large sample of SGM adolescents. Read More

The University of Tampa, Tampa, FL, USA.

More openly sexually and gender diverse people are aging into later life across the world as generational transitions occur. People identifying many different ways beyond cisgender and heterosexual are diverse with respect to many other characteristics and sociopolitical locations across the globe and may thus experience a wide array of health journeys both individually and as partners in intimate relationships. In this review article, we summarize the major contributions of and ongoing gaps in existing studies about such couples' experiences of chronic disease management in later life. Read More

Gerontologist 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

New York University Rory Meyers, College of Nursing, New York.

Background And Objectives: Discrimination toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) population has raised concerns about the type of long-term services and supports (LTSS) that will be available to them as they age. To understand the unique needs of aging LGBT populations, we sought to synthesize and critique the evidence related to LTSS providers and LGBT individuals' perspectives of LGBT issues in LTSS in the United States.

Research Design And Methods: Following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses, a systematic review of the literature was conducted. Read More

School of Public Health, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA, USA.

The HIV burden among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBM) may be related to variations in network characteristics of the individual's social and sexual network. This study investigates variations in network properties among 188 Black and 295 White GBM recruited in New Orleans during the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance in 2014. Participants described up to five people who provided social support and five sex partners in the past 3 months. Read More

An Integrated Approach to Measuring Sexual Orientation Disparities in Women's Access to Health Services: A National Health Interview Survey Application.

LGBT Health 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

1 RAND Corporation, Santa Monica, California.

Purpose: The extent to which disparities affect all sexual minority women (SMW) versus specific subgroups of lesbian, bisexual, or other women remains unclear, in part due to inconsistent analysis of available data. We propose an integrated approach that aggregates subgroups to maximize power to detect broadly applicable disparities, then tests for subgroup heterogeneity, exercising caution with disaggregation when there is no direct evidence of heterogeneity.

Methods: Multivariate analyses of 2014-2015 National Health Interview Survey data examined six barriers to care. Read More
