A text message-based intervention to improve self-management of pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, among teens and young adults significantly decreased rates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis infection compared with standard treatment, according to findings from a randomized clinical trial published in JAMA Network Open.
Maria Trent, MD, MPH, director of the adolescent medicine fellowship program and professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Medicine, and colleagues said study findings have brought about a shift in the past 20 years from inpatient to outpatient management of PID among teens and young adults.
