Studies on the response of ewes to live chlamydiae adapted to chicken embryos or tissue culture. (1/2783)

Ewes infected before gestation with chicken embryo or tissue culture adapted chlamydial strain B-577 were challenge inoculated with the homologous strain at four to 18 weeks of gestation. The ewes responsed with group specific complement fixing antibody titers of 1:8 to 1:256 by the second week after initial infection. A secondary antibody response in the surviving challenge inoculated ewes occurred at the time of lambing and reached titers of 1:32 to 1:256 by the second week after parturition. Group specific complement fixing antibodies did not appear to play a significant role in resistance to chlamydial infection. Ewes infected with the chicken embryo adapted strain B-577 excreted chlamydiae in their feces 60 days after inoculation. However, chlamydiae were not recovered from feces of ewes infected with the tissue culture adapted strain B-577. Placentas of ewes challenge inoculated by the intravenous route were consistently infected. Chlamydiae were recovered from placentas, some fetuses and lambs. In two instances when challenge inoculation was given by the intramuscular route, infection was detected only by the direct fluorescent antibody method.  (+info)

Chlamydia pneumoniae and atherosclerosis. (2/2783)

OBJECTIVE: To review the literature for evidence that chronic infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae is associated with atherosclerosis and acute coronary syndromes. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE and Institute of Science and Information bibliographic databases were searched at the end of September 1998. Indexing terms used were chlamydi*, heart, coronary, and atherosclerosis. Serological and pathological studies published as papers in any language since 1988 or abstracts since 1997 were selected. DATA EXTRACTION: It was assumed that chronic C pneumoniae infection is characterised by the presence of both specific IgG and IgA, and serological studies were examined for associations that fulfilled these criteria. Pathological studies were also reviewed for evidence that the presence of C pneumoniae in diseased vessels is associated with the severity and extent of atherosclerosis. DATA SYNTHESIS: The majority of serological studies have shown an association between C pneumoniae and atherosclerosis. However, the number of cases in studies that have reported a positive association when using strict criteria for chronic infection is similar to the number of cases in studies which found no association. Nevertheless, the organism is widely found in atherosclerotic vessels, although it may not be at all diseased sites and is not confined to the most severe lesions. Rabbit models and preliminary antibiotic trials suggest that the organism might exacerbate atherosclerosis. CONCLUSION: More evidence is required before C pneumoniae can be accepted as playing a role in atherosclerosis. Although use of antibiotics in routine practice is not justified, large scale trials in progress will help to elucidate the role of C pneumoniae.  (+info)

Chronic infection with Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus: population based study of coronary heart disease. (3/2783)

OBJECTIVE: To study possible associations between coronary heart disease and serological evidence of persistent infection with Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus. DESIGN: Population based, case-control study, nested within a randomised trial. SETTING: Five general practices in Bedfordshire, UK. INDIVIDUALS: 288 patients with incident or prevalent coronary heart disease and 704 age and sex matched controls. RESULTS: High concentrations of serum IgG antibodies to H pylori were present in 54% of cases v 46% of controls, with corresponding results for C pneumoniae seropositivity (33% v 33%), and cytomegalovirus seropositivity (40% v 31%). After adjustments for age, sex, smoking, indicators of socioeconomic status, and standard risk factors, the odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) for coronary heart disease of seropositivity to these agents were: 1.28 (0.93 to 1.75) for H pylori, 0.95 (0.66 to 1.36) for C pneumoniae, and 1.40 (0.96 to 2. 05) for cytomegalovirus. CONCLUSIONS: There is no good evidence of strong associations between coronary heart disease and serological markers of persistent infection with H pylori, C pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus. To determine the existence of moderate associations between these agents and disease, however, larger scale studies will be needed that can keep residual confounders to a minimum.  (+info)

Nongonococcal urethritis--a new paradigm. (4/2783)

Urethritis in men has been categorized historically as gonococcal or nongonococcal (NGU). The major pathogens causing NGU are Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Trichomonas vaginalis may be involved occasionally. In up to one-half of cases, an etiologic organism may not be identified. In this review we present recent advances in the diagnosis and management of NGU and discuss how they may be applied in a variety of clinical settings, including specialized STD clinics and primary health care practices. In particular, the development of the noninvasive urine-based nucleic acid amplification tests may warrant rethinking of the traditional classification of urethritis as gonococcal urethritis or NGU. Diagnostic for Chlamydia are strongly recommended because etiologic diagnosis of chlamydial urethritis may have important public health implications, such as the need for partner referral and reporting. A single 1-g dose of azithromycin was found to be therapeutically equivalent to the tetracyclines and may offer the advantage of better compliance.  (+info)

Chlamydia infections and heart disease linked through antigenic mimicry. (5/2783)

Chlamydia infections are epidemiologically linked to human heart disease. A peptide from the murine heart muscle-specific alpha myosin heavy chain that has sequence homology to the 60-kilodalton cysteine-rich outer membrane proteins of Chlamydia pneumoniae, C. psittaci, and C. trachomatis was shown to induce autoimmune inflammatory heart disease in mice. Injection of the homologous Chlamydia peptides into mice also induced perivascular inflammation, fibrotic changes, and blood vessel occlusion in the heart, as well as triggering T and B cell reactivity to the homologous endogenous heart muscle-specific peptide. Chlamydia DNA functioned as an adjuvant in the triggering of peptide-induced inflammatory heart disease. Infection with C. trachomatis led to the production of autoantibodies to heart muscle-specific epitopes. Thus, Chlamydia-mediated heart disease is induced by antigenic mimicry of a heart muscle-specific protein.  (+info)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a new ketolide antimicrobial agent. (6/2783)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a novel ketolide, was investigated in comparison with those of erythromycin A, roxithromycin, clarithromycin (14-membered ring macrolides), amoxycillin-clavulanate and ciprofloxacin against 719 recent clinical Gram-positive, Gram-negative and anaerobic isolates and type cultures. HMR 3647 generally demonstrated greater activity than the other compounds with MIC90s of < or =0.5 mg/L, except for Staphylococcus epidermidis (MIC90 > 128 mg/L), Haemophilus influenzae (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecalis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecium (MIC90 = 1 mg/L) and the anaerobes, Bacteroides fragilis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L) and Clostridium difficile (MIC90 = 1 mg/L). In general, an increase in the size of the inoculum from 10(4) to 10(6) cfu on selected strains had little effect on the MICs of HMR 3647. Additionally, the in-vitro activity of HMR 3647 was not affected by the presence of either 20 or 70% (v/v) human serum. The antichlamydial activity of HMR 3647 was generally greater than that of commonly used antichlamydial antimicrobials.  (+info)

Prospective study of Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG seropositivity and risks of future myocardial infarction. (7/2783)

BACKGROUND: Chlamydia pneumoniae has been hypothesized to play a role in atherothrombosis. However, prospective data relating exposure to Chlamydia pneumoniae and risks of future myocardial infarction (MI) are sparse. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a prospective cohort of nearly 15 000 healthy men, we measured IgG antibodies directed against Chlamydia pneumoniae in blood samples collected at baseline from 343 study participants who subsequently reported a first MI and from an equal number of age- and smoking-matched control subjects who did not report vascular disease during a 12-year follow-up period. The proportion of study subjects with IgG antibodies directed against Chlamydia increased with age and cigarette consumption. However, prevalence rates of Chlamydia IgG seropositivity were virtually identical at baseline among men who subsequently reported first MI compared with age- and smoking-matched control subjects. Specifically, the relative risks of future MI associated with Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG titers >/=1:16, 1:32, 1:64, 1:128, and 1:256 were 1.1, 1.0, 1.1, 1.0, and 0.8, respectively (all probability values not significant). There was no association in analyses adjusted for other risk factors, evaluating early as compared with late events, or among nonsmokers. Further, there was no association between seropositivity and concentration of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation that predicts MI risk in this cohort. CONCLUSIONS: In a large-scale study of socioeconomically homogeneous men that controlled for age, smoking, and other cardiovascular risk factors, we found no evidence of association between Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG seropositivity and risks of future MI.  (+info)

Role of innate and adaptive immunity in the outcome of primary infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae, as analyzed in genetically modified mice. (8/2783)

Infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common cause of acute respiratory disease in man and is also associated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disorder. Herein, we have compared bacterial load and immune parameters of C. pneumoniae-infected mice genomically lacking T cell coreceptors, cytokine receptors, or cytotoxic effector molecules. A protective role for CD8+ cells is shown by the enhanced severity of infection of CD8-/- or TAP-1-/-/beta2-microglobulin -/- mice. CD8+ cells hindered a parasite growth-promoting role of CD4+ T cells, as indicated by the higher sensitivity to early infection of CD8-/- than CD4-/-/CD8-/- mice, which was further confirmed in experiments in which SCID mice were reconstituted with either CD4+ or CD4+ plus CD8+ T cells. Interestingly, CD4+ T cells played a dual role, detrimental early (14 and 24 days) after infection but protective at later time points (60 days after infection). The CD8+ T cell protection was perforin independent. The early deleterious role of CD4+ in the absence of CD8+ T cells was associated with enhanced IL-4 and IL-10 mRNA levels and delayed IFN-gamma mRNA accumulation in lungs. In line with this, IFN-gammaR-/- (but not TNFRp55 -/-) mice showed dramatically increased susceptibility to C. pneumoniae, linked to reduced inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) mRNA accumulation, but not to diminished levels of specific Abs. The increased susceptibility of iNOS-/- mice indicates a protective role for iNOS activity during infection with C. pneumoniae. The higher sensitivity of IFN-gammaR-/- mice to C. pneumoniae compared with that of SCID or recombination-activating gene-1-/- mice suggested a relevant protective role of IFN-gamma-dependent innate mechanisms of protection.  (+info)

Background: In 2012, the levels of chlamydia control activities including primary prevention, effective case management with partner management and surveillance were assessed in 2012 across countries in the European Union and European Economic Area (EU/EEA), on initiative of the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) survey, and the findings were compared with those from a similar survey in 2007. Methods: Experts in the 30 EU/EEA countries were invited to respond to an online questionnaire; 28 countries responded, of which 25 participated in both the 2007 and 2012 surveys. Analyses focused on 13 indicators of chlamydia prevention and control activities; countries were assigned to one of five categories of chlamydia control. Results: In 2012, more countries than in 2007 reported availability of national chlamydia case management guidelines (80% vs. 68%), opportunistic chlamydia testing (68% vs. 44%) and consistent use of nucleic acid amplification tests (64% vs. 36%).

Investigation for genital chlamydial infections was carried out on 160 patients of fertile age attending a gynaecological outpatient clinic. Thirteen (9%) of the 144 patients with valid specimens were found to be Chlamydia-positive. Seven (54%) of them had antichlamydial antibodies by the complement-fixation test, and 11 (85%) antichlamydial antibodies by a single-antigen immunofluorescence test compared with 21 (16%) and 70 (53%), respectively, of the 131 Chlamydia-negative patients. Patients with overt genital chlamydial infection often complained of ocular and urethral symptoms. Usually there was clinical evidence of cervical infection as well as of inflammation on cervicovaginal smears. Colposcopical and histological examinations did not show any specific alterations.. ...
Chlamydia antibodies are antibodies targeting bacteria of the Chlamydia genus, but it generally refers specifically to antibodies targeting Chlamydia trachomatis, which is the cause of Chlamydia infection in humans. Testing for Chlamydia antibodies is not the mainstay diagnostic tool for Chlamydia infection, which is preferentially diagnosed by Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT) such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). However, testing for Chlamydia antibodies is a cost-effective screening device in detecting fallopian tube pathology, as it is often related to Chlamydia infection. The preferred technique for this purpose is by micro-immunofluorescence (MIF), because it is superior in the assessment of tubal pathology when compared with immunofluorescence (IF) or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

In this study, we have developed a chlamydia risk scoring tool based on data from more than 45 000 men and women who attended SSHC during the period 1998-2009. The tool was validated to accurately identify those at increased risk of chlamydia infection. Our methodology made use of a range of coexisting risk factors that were identified by a rigorous statistical approach in order to accurately determine the most relevant risk factors for chlamydia infection.. Developing a risk assessment tool that identifies, quantifies and characterises risks may lead to improved knowledge about chlamydia and increased testing for STIs. This is particularly relevant because many infections are asymptomatic and individuals may be unaware that they are at risk and/or have the infection. For example, our current study found higher percentages of heterosexual males and females were unsure of their HIV status compared to MSM (47%, 48% and 22% for heterosexual men, women and MSM, respectively) and those who were not ...

When people go for either a Chlamydia test or a Gonorrhea test, they always go for a combined Chlamydia and Gonorrhea test.. The main reason for that is that both the tests are quite similar. Additionally, Chlamydia symptoms are very similar to Gonorrhea symptoms, so its only wise to test for both infections together to ascertain the exact type of infection.. This test is called the Nucleic Acid Amplification Test or NAAT. Both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are caused by bacteria. When somebody is infected with these bacteria, theres supposed to be the presence of the bacteria in the urine sample.. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Test Window Period is generally 3 to 7 days. It means 3 to 7 days after the infection period the detection of the individual bacteria can be done positively. In most of the cases people come for a test much after that, but if youre not among them then its better that you wait for at least 7 to 10 days.. The NAAT test carries out an amplification of the DNA of the bacteria and ...

Chlamydia is the second most common sexually transmitted diseases after papillomavirus. It affects both men and women but is more serious consequence at the fair sex.. Chlamydia causes severe irreversible damage to reproductive organs in women. The infection is the cause of clogging and blockage of the fallopian tubes, causing serious consequences such as infertility and creating conditions for the emergence of dangerous conditions such as the ectopic pregnancy.. Chlamydia trachomatis is transmitted through all forms of sex - vaginal, oral, anal. In most cases, the infection is symptomless - seven out of 10 people do not complain of any signs weeks after infection. If you are experiencing any symptoms, they include unusual vaginal discharge, burning during urination, possible rectal pain, anal spread of microorganisms, discharges and even bleeding from the rectum.. There are several types of antibiotic treatment in chlamydial infection. In one is considered a single dose of medicament, other ...
Bell County is ranked the second and third highest in the State of Texas for gonorrhea and chlamydia infections. According to the data provided by the Texas HIV STD Unit s 2015 Report we are seeing rates that are more similar to larger counties in Texas such as Harris, Bexar, and Dallas than we are seeing to counties closer to our size.
If untreated, chlamydial infections can progress to serious reproductive and other health problems with both short-term and long-term consequences. Like the disease itself, the damage that chlamydia causes is often silent. STDs & Infertility In women, untreated infection can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This happens in about 10 to 15 percent of women with untreated chlamydia. Chlamydia can also cause fallopian tube infection without any symptoms. PID and silent infection in the upper genital tract can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding tissues. The damage can lead to chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus). Chlamydia may also increase the chances of becoming infected with HIV, if exposed. To help prevent the serious consequences of chlamydia, screening at least annually for chlamydia is recommended for all sexually active women age 25 ...
After a proper diagnosis, the doctor might recommend oral antibiotics such as ofloxacin, azithromycin, doxycycline, and erythromycin. Antibiotics might be advised as one-time dosage or every day does not less than one week. The two doses are in much the same way useful. Then again, if the sufferer will drop daily intake of antibiotics, then it would be smart to go for the one-time dose program, which can be much more expensive when compared with the daily antibiotic plan. Greater than 95% of cases of Chlamydia infection is treated with the antibiotic system.

Chlamydia is the most prevalent bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the western world [1]. In Ireland, the number of chlamydia notifications increased from 245 in 1995 to 6290 in 2008 [2]. While this may reflect a real rise in the burden of chlamydia infection, it also reflects an increase in provider awareness in chlamydia testing, test performance [3] and the introduction of laboratory notifications in Ireland in 2004. The real burden (numbers of infection) is likely to be higher than reported as chlamydia is asymptomatic in approximately 70% of women and 50% of men and thus may remain undiagnosed [4]. Prevalence studies [5, 6] in young Irish people (including students) have shown similar rates of infection to the UK and else where in Europe [7-9].. In view of the asymptomatic nature of chlamydia, especially in women, there is recognition [10-15] that it is important to screen sexually active women aged less than 25 years [16]. Two approaches are proposed: (a) systematic, where ...

Vulval cancer may also present with pruritus or pain. For a patient who presents with these symptoms and where cancer is not immediately suspected, it is reasonable to use a period of treat, watch and wait as a method of management. However, this should include active follow-up until symptoms resolve or a diagnosis is confirmed. If symptoms persist, the referral may be urgent or non-urgent, depending on the symptoms and the degree of concern about cancer ...

Chlamydiae are medically important bacteria responsible for a wide range of human infections and diseases. Repeated episodes of infection promote chronic inflammation associated with detrimental immune system-mediated pathologic changes. However, the true nature of chlamydial pathogenesis may encompass repeated infection superimposed upon persistent infection, which would allow for heightened immune reactivity. During the course of chlamydial infection, numerous host elaborated factors with inhibitory or modifying effects may cause alterations in the chlamydia-host cell relationship such that the organism is maintained in a nonproductive stage of growth. Abnormal or persistent chlamydiae have been recognized under a variety of cell culture systems. The numerous factors associated with altered growth suggest an innate flexibility in the developmental cycle of chlamydiae. This review evaluates in vitro studies of chlamydial persistence and correlates these model systems to features of natural ...

What is chlamydia disease? Chlamydia is one of the most common bacterial infection that is well known as venereal disease or sexually transmitted disease. This bacteria normally live in the groin area, can be communicated to both men and women through vaginal, oral, anal sex and even through the placenta( from a mother to her child). It can infect the penis, urethra, anus, vagina, cervix, eyes and throat easily even there are many natural home remedies for chlamydia infection. Most people with positive test result do not show any signs or symptoms that they might not recognize that they got the sexually transmitted infection. Therefore, the reported cases of chlamydia infection have increased every year, and the annual prevalence in America is nearly 3 million people.. What are chlamydia signs and symptoms?.

Chlamydia is an STD (sexually transmitted disease) caused by the bacterium called bacterial vaginosis. This is not a sexually transmitted disease (STD) like the others. It is caused by an infection in the vagina that is caused by a particular strain of bacteria. Chlamydia can be transmitted sexually, but it is very unlikely to do so. It is also easily detectable because it is seen with a form of physical examination-discharge or grayish or white fluid that is often seen in and around the vagina. can help you learn more about this subject.. Since there is no need for any physical examination to determine if you have chlamydia, it is wise to abstain from sex until you are absolutely sure that you are free of this disease. The only way to be certain that you are clear is to undergo a test called Chlamydia testing. Chlamydia testing will not only determine if you have the infection; it will also reveal if you have multiple sex partners or are sexually active at ...
Chlamydia is a very common sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by bacteria. You can get chlamydia from vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Chlamydia is common in the U.S. with over 1 million cases reported each year. Among all age groups, teens and young adults have the highest rates of infection.. Most females (and some males) who have chlamydia have no symptoms, and annual testing for chlamydia is recommended for all sexually active women age 25 and under.. ...
It is very common to suffer from some kind of sexually transmitted disease during life, much more common than we would like and what it seems. The most common transmission diseases are human papilloma Virus, herpes, gonorrhea and nonspecific urethritis. For greater safety and prevention it is extremely important to receive a review of a physician when alterations of any kind are present in the genitalia, something different or something new, and this is because most sexually transmitted diseases have a cure, However, if they are not treated in time these can become complicated causing sequels for life or death. Chlamydia: Chlamydia infection is a common STD that can infect both men and women. It can cause serious and permanent damage to a womans reproductive system and make it more difficult or impossible for her to become pregnant in the future. Chlamydial infection can also cause an ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy occurring outside the uterus) that can be deadly. You can get chlamydia infection ...

In this work, the geometrical characteristics of two different types of cells observed with Electron Microscopy were analysed. The nuclear envelope of Wild-type HeLa cells and Chlamydia trachomatis-infected HeLa cells were automatically segmented and then modelled against a spheroid and converted to a two-dimensional surface. Geometric measurements from this surface and the volumetric nuclear envelope were extracted to compare the two types of cells. The measurements included the nuclear volume, the sphericity of the nucleus, its flatness or spikiness. In total 13 different cells were segmented: 7 Wild-type and 6 Chlamydia trachomatis-infected. The cells were statistically different in the following measurements. Wild-type HeLa cells have greater volumes than that of Chlamydia trachomatis-infected HeLa cells and they are more spherical as Jaccard index suggests. Standard deviation (σ), and range of values for the nuclear envelope, which shows the distance of the highest peaks and deepest ...
The present disclosure relates to a solid phase immunoassay for the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis antigens in a clinical specimen, wherein the Chlamydia trachomatis antigens to be determined are coated or adsorbed on the solid phase.
article{2075419, abstract = {BACKGROUND: In many developing countries, little is known about the prevalence of genital Chlamydia trachomatis infections and complications, such as infertility, thus preventing any policy from being formulated regarding screening for C. trachomatis of patients at risk for infertility. The objective of the present study was to determine the prevalence of C. trachomatis and evaluate the diagnostic utility of serological markers namely anti-C. trachomatis IgG and IgA antibodies in women attending an infertility clinic. METHODS: Serum and vaginal swab specimens of 303 women presenting with infertility to the infertility clinic of the Kigali University Teaching Hospital and 312 fertile controls who recently delivered were investigated. Two commercial species-specific ELISA were used to determine serum IgG and IgA antibodies to C. trachomatis and vaginal swabs specimens were tested by PCR. Hysterosalpingography (HSG) was performed in subfertile women. RESULTS: The PCR ...

Copyright © 2017 American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved. Chlamydia trachomatis infection is the most prevalent bacterial sexually transmitted infection and can cause significant reproductive morbidity in women. There is insufficient knowledge of C. trachomatis-specific immune responses in humans, which could be important in guiding vaccine development efforts. In contrast, murine models have clearly demonstrated the essential role of T helper type 1 (Th1) cells, especially interferon gamma (IFN-γ)-producing CD4+ T cells, in protective immunity to chlamydia. To determine the frequency and magnitude of Th1 cytokine responses elicited to C. trachomatis infection in humans, we stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells from 90 chlamydia-infected women with C. trachomatis elementary bodies, Pgp3, and major outer membrane protein and measured IFN-γ-, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α)-, and interleukin-2 (IL-2)-producing CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses using intracellular ...
Objective: To measure the coverage and uptake of systematic postal screening for genital Chlamydia trachomatis and the prevalence of infection in the general population in the United Kingdom. To investigate factors associated with these measures. Design: Cross sectional survey of people randomly selected from general practice registers. Invitation to provide a specimen collected at home. Setting: England. Participants: 19 773 men and women aged 16-39 years invited to participate in screening. Main outcome measures: Coverage and uptake of screening; prevalence of chlamydia. Results: Coverage of chlamydia screening was 73% and was lower in areas with a higher proportion of non-white residents. Uptake in 16-24 year olds was 31.5% and was lower in men, younger adults, and practices in disadvantaged areas. Overall prevalence of chlamydia was 2.8% (95% confidence interval 2.2% to 3.4%) in men and 3.6% (3.1% to 4.9%) in women, but it was higher in people younger than 25 years (men 5.1%; 4.0% to 6.3%; women 6.2
Chlamydia trachomatis serovar E is one of the most common bacterial sexually transmitted pathogens. Since it is an obligate intracellular bacterium, efficient colonization of genital mucosal epithelial cells is crucial to the infectious process. Serovar E elementary bodies (EB) metabolically radiolabeled with 35S-Cys-Met and harvested from microcarrier bead cultures, which significantly improves the infectious EB-to-particle ratio, provided a more accurate picture of the parameters of attachment of EB to human endometrial epithelial cells (HEC-1B) than did less infectious 14C-EB harvested from flask cultures. Binding of serovar E EB was (i) equivalent at 35 and 4 degrees C, (ii) decreased by preexposure of EB to heat or the topical microbicide C31G, (iii) comparable among common eukaryotic cell lines (HeLa, McCoy), and (iv) significantly increased to the apical surfaces of polarized cells versus nonpolarized cells. In parallel experiments with C. trachomatis serovar L2, serovar E attachment was ...

Author(s): Al-Kuhlani, Mufadhal Mohammed | Advisor(s): Ojcius, David; Manilay, Jennifer O | Abstract: Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common bacterial sexually-transmitted disease (STD) around the world. The response of the immune system to eliminate C. trachomatis infection through inflammation is a very efficient process. However, persistent infection or uncontrolled inflammation causes a complication in the upper genital tract, which can ultimately lead to infertility and chronic pelvic pain. Therefore, inflammation has to be tightly regulated to avoid an uncontrolled immune response. The genetic factors that regulate inflammation during Chlamydia infection have not been clearly characterized. SIGIRR, Triad3A and TRAIL-R are proteins that have been shown to manipulate inflammation in response to various pathogens and diseases. However, little is known about their role during C. trachomatis infection.Our results indicate that in the absence of SIGIRR, epithelial cells induce higher levels of
We included 15 trials (involving 1754 women) although our meta-analyses were based on fewer numbers of studies/women. All of the included studies were undertaken in North America from 1982 to 2001. Two studies were low risk of bias in all domains, all other studies had varying risk of bias. Four other studies were excluded and one study is ongoing.. Eight comparisons were included in this review; three compared antibiotic (erythromycin, clindamycin, amoxicillin) versus placebo; five compared an antibiotic versus another antibiotic (erythromycin, clindamycin, amoxicillin, azithromycin). No study reported different antibiotic regimens.. Microbiological cure (primary outcome) Antibiotics versus placebo: Erythromycin (average risk ratio (RR) 2.64, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.60 to 4.38; two trials, 495 women; I2 = 68%; moderate-certainty evidence), and clindamycin (RR 4.08, 95% CI 2.35 to 7.08; one trial, 85 women; low-certainty evidence) were associated with improved microbiological cure ...

A method is described in which smears on slides, which had been examined previously in a direct fluorescence antibody (DFA) test for Chlamydia trachomatis, were tested by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Twenty four (73%) of 33 smears which contained fewer than 10 elementary bodies when examined by the DFA test were positive by the PCR. Of the nine negative smears, seven contained only one or two elementary bodies. However, single elementary bodies were detected by the PCR in seven of the 24 positive samples. Fifteen smears were negative by both methods. The ability to detect small numbers of elementary bodies by the PCR and its specificity for negative smears indicates its potential for retrospective analysis of stored, archival smears on slides.. ...
The obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis is a major human pathogen and a main cause of genital and ocular diseases. During its intracellular cycle, C. trachomatis replicates inside a membrane-bound vacuole termed an inclusion. Acquisition of lipids (and other nutrients) from the host cell is a critical step in chlamydial replication. Lipid droplets (LD) are ubiquitous, ER-derived neutral lipid-rich storage organelles surrounded by a phospholipids monolayer and associated proteins. Previous studies have shown that LDs accumulate at the periphery of, and eventually translocate into, the chlamydial inclusion. These observations point out to Chlamydia-mediated manipulation of LDs in infected cells, which may impact the function and thereby the protein composition of these organelles. By means of a label-free quantitative mass spectrometry approach we found that the LD proteome is modified in the context of C. trachomatis infection. We determined that LDs isolated from C. ...
The mechanistic details of the pathogenesis of Chlamydia, an obligate intracellular pathogen of global importance, have eluded scientists due to the scarcity of traditional molecular genetic tools to investigate this organism. Here we report a chemical biology strategy that has uncovered the first essential protease for this organism. Identification and application of a unique CtHtrA inhibitor (JO146) to cultures of Chlamydia resulted in a complete loss of viable elementary body formation. JO146 treatment during the replicative phase of development resulted in a loss of Chlamydia cell morphology, diminishing inclusion size, and ultimate loss of inclusions from the host cells. This completely prevented the formation of viable Chlamydia elementary bodies. In addition to its effect on the human Chlamydia trachomatis strain, JO146 inhibited the viability of the mouse strain, Chlamydia muridarum, both in vitro and in vivo. Thus, we report a chemical biology approach to establish an essential role for
With more than 90 million new cases annually, Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial disease. Untreated endocervical C. trachomatis infections can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a disorder of the endometrium, fallopian tubes, and adjacent structures that occurs after ascension of the bacterium from the lower to upper genital tract. Adverse outcomes secondary to C. trachomatis-induced PID include tubal infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain. Vaccine development has been identified as essential for control of C. trachomatis infections, and current evidence suggests that an effective vaccine will likely be based on several C. trachomatis antigens. Experimental models of infection have identified HSP60, major outer-membrane protein (MOMP), outer membrane protein 2 (OMP2), and polymorphic membrane protein D (PmpD) as promising vaccine candidates. A prospective study of Kenyan commercial sex workers found that production of interferon-gamma ...
Objective: To characterise a Chlamydio trachomatis variant strain from a patient with non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) whose first void urine (FVU) displayed discrepant C trachomatis test results and describe the clinical response to treatment. Methods: The FVU specimen was assayed with an immune based Chlamydio Rapid Test (CRT) and various nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) to establish C trachomatis infection. Sequencing of the major outer membrane protein gene (omp I also known as ompA) was undertaken to identify the serovar of the variant strain. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis was also conducted to determine whether the strain harboured deletions in the cryptic plasmid or was plasmid free. Results: The FVU specimen was strongly reactive in CRT but negative with the plasmid based Amplicor PCR (Roche) and ProbeTec ET (Becton-Dickinson) assays. However, NAATs for 16S RNA (Aptima Combo 2, GenProbe), omp 1 (RealArt CT PCR, Artus and in-house NAATs) or the outer membrane complex B ...

Chlamydia infection (from the Greek, χλαμύδα meaning cloak) is a common sexually transmitted infection in humans caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. The term Chlamydia infection can also refer to infection caused by any species belonging to the bacterial family Chlamydiaceae. C. trachomatis is found only in humans. Chlamydia is a major infectious cause of human genital and eye disease. Chlamydia infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections worldwide; it is estimated that about 1 million individuals in the United States are infected with chlamydia. ...
There is a strong epidemiological link between infection with the intracellular bacteria C. pneumoniae and asthma exacerbation. A recent investigation also shows that early life infection with the mouse pneumonitis biovar Cmu exacerbates allergic asthma in a mouse model of the disease (28). However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underpin this association are poorly understood. In this investigation, we show that Cmu can form a viable infection within BMDC and that infection subverts DC function. This confirms a recent study demonstrating that murine DCs can be infected with the murine Chlamydia, Cmu (29), and importantly demonstrates that infection also alters DC function and induction of T cell responses. Chlamydia infection of BMDC inhibited the expression of the constitutive costimulatory marker CD80 and enhanced CD86 expression, a phenotype initially reported to promote Th2 responses (30). However, the actual effect on the polarization of T cells is perhaps more complex (31, ...

Novel simultaneous RNA-Seq analysis tracks host/pathogen interactions. Investigators at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have developed a new technique that can track the activity of a disease-causing microbe and the host cell response to that pathogen simultaneously. Using the new method to examine Chlamydia trachomatis infection, the study team observed how the response of the infected cell contributes to one of the hallmark outcomes of chlamydial disease -- tissue scarring. Their findings appear in the December 4 issue of PLOS One.. Chlamydia trachomatis is an intracellular, disease-causing bacterium responsible for the most common human sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and infectious blindness (trachoma) globally. Sexually transmitted chlamydial infections are often asymptomatic, and cause tissue damage and scarring. For example, chlamydial-induced scar tissue within the fallopian tubes can block the tubal opening and lead to ...

Among the 44 women and 118 men infected with CT, 29 (56.8%) and 74 (61.9%), respectively, reported no genitourinary symptoms during last six months.. DISCUSSION. This study reports the prevalence and correlates of chlamydial infection in select marginalized urban men and women in coastal Peru. According to the results, CT infection was more common in women than in men (Table 2), corroborating other studies (24-27). While the prevalence of chlamydia in men was very similar to that found elsewhere (24, 27, 28), the prevalence in women was much higher compared to other studies done in Latin America (8, 13, 14, 27). In comparison with a study among women in the general population of Peru, the rate of chlamydial infection among the marginalized women in this analysis was twice that of women in the general population (1, 12).. Chlamydial infection was significantly associated with age in both men and ...
Pathogenic bacterial strains can alter the normal function of cells and induce different levels of inflammatory responses that are connected to the development of different diseases, such as tuberculosis, diarrhea, cancer etc. Chlamydia trachomatis (C. trachomatis) is an intracellular obligate gram-negative bacterium which has been connected with the cervical cancer etiology. Nevertheless, establishment of causality and the underlying mechanisms of carcinogenesis of cervical cancer associated with C. trachomatis remain unclear. Studies reveal the existence of C. trachomatis in cervical cancer patients. The DNA repair pathways including mismatch repair, nucleotide excision, and base excision are vital in the abatement of accumulated mutations that can direct to the process of carcinogenesis. C. trachomatis recruits DDR proteins away from sites of DNA damage and, in this way, impedes the DDR. Therefore, by disturbing host cell-cycle control, chromatin and DDR repair, C. trachomatis makes a ...
Urogenital chlamydia infection, caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection in Sweden. In 2008 it was estimated by WHO that there were 105.7 million new cases of CT worldwide, an increase by 4.2 million cases (4.1%) compared to 2005. If untreated, CT infections can progress to serious reproductive health problems, especially in women. These complications include subfertility/infertility, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pain. The CT infection is often asymptomatic and reliable diagnostic methods and contact tracing are important tools for identifying infected individuals. CT infection is classified in the Swedish Communicable Diseases Act as a serious disease; consequently, written reporting and contact tracing are compulsory. Previous or ongoing CT infection is not uncommon in infertile couples, especially in women with tubal factor infertility (TFI). We have tested 244 infertile couples for CT antibodies, and CT IgG positive ...

Infection with Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) is the most commonly reported sexually transmitted infection in Europe. In Germany, Ct screening is offered free of charge to pregnant women since 1995 and to women | 25 years of age since 2008. For symptomatic individuals, testing is covered by statutory health insurance. Study results have shown that repeat Ct infection occurs in 10-20% of previously infected women and men. Our aim was to describe persons tested for Ct and to investigate the determinants of (repeat) Ct infection in women and men in Germany. We analysed Ct test results from men and women tested between 2008 and 2014 in laboratories participating in the German Chlamydia trachomatis Laboratory Sentinel surveillance. Reinfection was defined as at least 2 positive laboratory tests within more than 30 days. We performed logistic regression stratified by sex and, for women, reason for testing to determine the effect of previous test results and age group on subsequent test results. In total, 2,574

A higher median frequency of CD8(+) T-cell responses was detected in women with lower genital tract chlamydial infection, compared with those with upper genital tract chlamydial infection (13.8% vs 9.5%; P =04), but the CD4(+) T-cell response frequencies were not different. Women who remained uninfected displayed a greater frequency of positive CD4(+) T-cell responses (29% vs 18%; P < .0001), compared with women who had incident infection, while the frequencies of CD8(+) T-cell responses did not differ. A subset of proteins involved in central metabolism, type III secretion, and protein synthesis were associated with protection. CONCLUSIONS ...
Chlamydia trachomatis continues to be the most commonly reported sexually transmitted bacterial infec-tion in many countries with more than 100 million new cases estimated annually. These acute infectionstranslate into significant downstream health care costs, particularly for women, where complicationscan include pelvic inflammatory disease and other disease sequelae such as tubal factor infertility.Despite years of research, the immunological mechanisms responsible for protective immunity versusimmunopathology are still not well understood, although it is widely accepted that T cell driven IFN-gand Th17 responses are critical for clearing infection. While antibodies are able to neutralize infectionsin vitro, alone they are not protective, indicating that any successful vaccine will need to elicit botharms of the immune response. In recent years, there has been an expansion in the number and types ofantigens that have been evaluated as vaccines, and combined with the new array of mucosal adjuvants,this

  • Screening of sexually active young adults to detect and treat asymptomatic infections might reduce chlamydia transmission and prevent reproductive tract morbidity, particularly pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women, which can cause tubal infertility and ectopic pregnancy. (
  • Many people who have chlamydia infection are asymptomatic (have no symptoms). (
  • Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States, although most people with chlamydia are asymptomatic. (
  • Since Chlamydia trachomatis or Chlamydia pneumoniae (which are often asymptomatic) frequently cause reactive arthritis (ReA), a new study examined whether there was a connection between these two infections and uSpA. (
  • For Chlamydia pneumoniae , as many as 70 percent of acute infections are asymptomatic and, even when there are symptoms, definitive identification of the organism is rare. (
  • Chlamydia is actually the most reported case of sexually transmitted bacterial infection in the U.S.A, this is the case even though a large number of infected people aren`t accounted for as the awareness is low, the infection being asymptomatic. (
  • The infections are asymptomatic and hence there is absence of any burning sensation during urination. (
  • Some 30-60% of gonorrhea-infected women and up to 70% of chlamydia-infected women have been reported to be asymptomatic. (
  • 4 An early study of the efficacy of screening for chlamydia in asymptomatic women found that high-risk women who were identified by screening and then were treated had a significantly lower incidence of PID than those who received usual care without selective testing. (
  • Because symptoms are often absent in the early stages (a condition known as asymptomatic), chlamydia is easily spread through unprotected oral, vaginal, and anal sex with an infected partner. (
  • However, when these infections occur in extragenital areas, they are typically asymptomatic," notes Joshua Trebach, a third-year student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who undertook this surveillance project along with Ghanem. (
  • In most individuals, chlamydial infections are asymptomatic, resulting in long-term sequelae such as pelvic inflammatory disease, salpingitis and infertility. (
  • Infection is usually asymptomatic in both men and women. (
  • Although 50% of young adults have serological evidence of infection, most infections are asymptomatic or mild. (
  • Background: Asymptomatic Chlamydia trachomatis (chlamydia) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (gonorrhea) infections pose diagnostic and control problems in developing countries. (
  • Conclusion: A high prevalence and incidence of asymptomatic sexually transmitted infections was identified among men and women in a wide variety of settings. (
  • To assess the cost-effectiveness of identifying and treating asymptomatic female carriers of Chlamydia trachomatis . (
  • Genc M, Mardh P. A Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Screening and Treatment for Chlamydia trachomatis Infection in Asymptomatic Women. (

  • Chlamydia pneumoniae is a type of bacteria that can cause respiratory tract infections, such as pneumonia. (
  • C. pneumoniae is one cause of community-acquired pneumonia or lung infections developed outside of a hospital. (
  • Babies born to infected mothers can get eye infections and pneumonia from chlamydia. (
  • Sometimes the infection may lead to complications for the infant, such as pneumonia. (
  • If a woman still has chlamydia late in pregnancy (or if she acquires it during pregnancy), the baby can get infection of the eyes or pneumonia. (
  • Chlamydia can cause pneumonia or serious eye infections in a newborn , especially among children born to infected mothers in developing countries. (
  • An estimated 10% of all cases of pneumonia each year are caused by this species of Chlamydia, and this is preliminary evidence that it may also be associated with cardiovascular disease. (
  • Babies exposed to Chlamydia in the birth canal during delivery can be born with pneumonia or with an eye infection called conjunctivitis , both of which can be dangerous unless treated early with antibiotics. (
  • C. trachomatis infections of women also pose a risk to infants, as infants born from mothers with C. trachomatis infections can develop conjunctivitis and/or pneumonia. (
  • Untreated infections may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, tubal scarring, ectopic pregnancy, infertility, and chronic pelvic pain in women, epididymitis in men, and infant pneumonia in children ( 4 - 7 ). (
  • During delivery, babies are exposed to these bacteria and risk developing blindness, life-threatening blood infections, and pneumonia. (
  • Chlamydia is the leading cause of early infant pneumonia and conjunctivitis (pink eye) in the newborn. (
  • Chlamydophila psittaci is primarily a pathogen of psittacine birds but infection may lead to atypical pneumonia or pyrexia in man ( 5 ). (
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common respiratory pathogen associated with atypical pneumonia, and it has been suggested as a trigger or promoter of several chronic inflammatory conditions, such as asthma and atherosclerosis. (
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common respiratory pathogen associated with atypical pneumonia, pharyngitis, bronchitis, and sinusitis. (
  • Azithromycin in Coronary Artery Disease: Elimination of Myocardial Infection with Chlamydia pneumonia. (
  • Chlamydia infection, often simply known as chlamydia, is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. (
  • After the first report on the presence of Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cpn) in brains of patients with AD appeared in 1998, this bacterium has most often been implicated in AD pathogenesis. (
  • Chlamydia is an infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis . (
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common and important intracellular bacterium implicated in upper and lower respiratory tract infections in humans. (
  • Chlamydia trachomatis is an obligate bacterium that is intracellular and affects the human hence is a pathogen. (
  • The obligate intracellular bacterium, Chlamydia trachomatis , typically has a biphasic lifestyle, but can enter into an altered growth state typified by morphologically aberrant chlamydial forms, termed persistent growth forms, when induced by stress in vitro . (
  • Finally, epidemiological evidence indicates that C. trachomatis infection of the reproductive tract also may increase the risk of HIV transmission, making the study and understanding of the pathogenicity of this bacterium imperative. (
  • Once the cells are devoid of such nutrients, the bacterium halts its growth, however when favourable supply of nutrients reappear, the bacterium multiplies and causes recurrent infections. (
  • Chlamydia trachomatis is an obligate intracellular bacterium and major human pathogen with more than 100 million infections annually. (
  • Chlamydia trachomatis , a Gram-negative obligate intracellular bacterium, is the leading cause of bacterial sexually transmitted disease. (
  • During infection of human monocytes/macrophages in culture this bacterium displays aberrant morphology and produces no new elementary bodies, reflecting the situation in synovium. (
  • The gene encoding the 57-kDa heat-shock protein ( hsp60 ) is expressed by the bacterium throughout the 10-day infection of cultured monocytes, but transcript levels from the gene encoding the major outer membrane protein ( omp1 ) appear to be attenuated. (
  • In order to develop these advances, species-specific targets, as well as mechanisms the bacterium uses to establish infection must be identified. (
  • Infections caused by the intracellular bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis are a global health burden affecting more than 100 million people annually causing damaging long-lasting infections. (
  • Chlamydia psittaci is a bacterium that can be transmitted from pet birds to humans. (
  • Infections with the human pathogenic bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, which can lead to chronic pain or infertility, were analyzed in these models. (

  • The presence of specific types of vaginal bacteria may be associated with an increased risk for chlamydia infection, finds a small, but well powered study published online in Sexually Transmitted Infections. (
  • Chlamydia infection is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis . (
  • These medicines work by killing the bacteria and are given to the infected person, their partners (even if they don't have chlamydia), and to newborns of mothers with chlamydia. (

  • Chlamydiae are susceptible to antibiotics that interfere with DNA and protein synthesis, including tetracyclines, macrolides, and quinolones. (
  • Only single trials assessed repeated infections, preterm birth, preterm rupture of membranes, perinatal mortality and low birthweight and found there were no clear differences between the different types of antibiotics examined. (
  • Treatment of chlamydia infection with antibiotics appears to be effective during pregnancy. (
  • In particular, future research could report on the outcomes of focus in this review and target those antibiotics, such as amoxicillin and clindamycin, which may be effective in curing chlamydia with the least side effects. (

  • Find out how chlamydia can be treated with a short course of antibiotics with helpful information in this video on chlamydia. (
  • Those guidelines highlighted the prevalence and morbidity of chlamydial infections and stressed the need to include antibiotics effective against chlamydia when treating patients for urethritis, mucopurulent cervicitis, and pelvic inflammatory disease. (
  • Antibiotics are effective in the treatment of gonorrhoea and chlamydia in pregnancy, but before accepting the results of this review and deciding on which treatment regimen to follow, it would be essential for each country to determine the prevalence of penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoea. (
  • Antibiotics like azithromycin and doxycycline are used to treat Chlamydia infections. (
  • This multi-faceted approach includes Surgery for trichiasis cases, Antibiotics to treat the community pool of infection, Face washing to reduce transmission, and Environmental change. (
  • However, if the infection is not picked up in the early stages, it can progress into a chronic form and then antibiotics are mostly ineffective. (
  • Uncomplicated chlamydial infections can be treated easily with antibiotics, but once infection and pathology are established, treatment may be less effective. (
  • Because chlamydia is a bacterial infection it can be cured with antibiotics specific to the infection, which must be prescribed by a health care provider. (
  • While current treatment with antibiotics remains successful in combating infections, evidence of persistent infections, acquisition of antibiotic resistances, and recurring exposure intensifies the necessity for enhanced prophylactic approaches, including the development of a vaccine. (
  • Physician prescription preference for antibiotics such as macrolides and tetracycline is driving the growth of chlamydia infection therapeutics market. (
  • A clinical trial that asked whether Chlamydia pneumoniae infection was an additional risk factor for atherosclerosis in patients with coronary artery disease-i.e., do antibiotics reduce ischaemic events? (

  • These can take the form of antibiotics for bacterial infections such as chlamydia or highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) for the HIV virus. (
  • In women, an untreated infection can spread to your uterus and fallopian tubes, causing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). (
  • Variants in toll-like receptor 1 and 4 genes are associated with Chlamydia trachomatis among women with pelvic inflammatory disease. (
  • Additionally, women diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) are more likely to contract chlamydia. (
  • When symptoms occur, they are the same as for any uterine or tubal infection (endometritis or pelvic inflammatory disease [PID], respectively): low abdominal pain and fever are the main symptoms. (
  • The infection increases a woman's risk of pelvic inflammatory disease ( PID ). (
  • Undiagnosed chlamydia can progress to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which may lead to relative or absolute infertility. (
  • Without treatment, up to 40% of cases of Chlamydia can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease , a serious infection of the woman's fallopian tubes that also can damage the ovaries and uterus. (
  • Symptomless women who are screened at treated for Chlamydia infection are almost 60% less likely than unscreened women to develop pelvic inflammatory disease. (
  • Infection may result in cervicitis, and in some women, C. trachomatis may ascend into the endometrium and Fallopian tubes, where it can establish a chronic infection leading to diseases such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility. (
  • 1 Infections among these women are especially problematic because of the severe reproductive sequelae that may develop, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy and tubal scarring. (
  • Left untreated, chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, urethritis and sterility. (
  • Untreated or inadequately treated chlamydia infections can lead to more serious problems such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility in women, and epididymitis and prostatitis in men. (
  • These acute infections translate into significant downstream health care costs, particularly for women, where infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease are the most serious sequaele. (
  • There is a need for enhanced techniques of diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease and for signs of chlamydial infection that expects women at high threat of tubal damage. (
  • You can get chlamydia during oral, vaginal, or anal sex with someone who has the infection. (
  • The only sure way to prevent chlamydia is to not have vaginal, anal, or oral sex. (
  • When symptoms do develop this can take a few weeks following infection to occur Symptoms in women may include vaginal discharge or burning with urination. (
  • Does regular vaginal culture test identify Chlamydia infection? (
  • If a provider just sends a vaginal specimen for culture, most labs will not test it for chlamydia. (
  • Chlamydia (the STD) is spread between adults by intimate sexual contact, and those at highest risk are people with multiple sex partners, especially if they have unprotected sex, whether vaginal, oral, or anal. (
  • Although Chlamydia trachomatis is a human genital tract pathogen, chlamydial organisms have frequently been detected in both vaginal and rectal swab samples of animals and humans. (
  • In symptomatic individuals with genitourinary chlamydia infection, examination findings may include urethral discharge, abnormal vaginal discharge , cervicitis ( inflammation of the cervix ) and contact bleeding, tenderness on bimanual examination ( cervical excitation and pelvic adnexal tenderness), and rectal discharge. (
  • Not having vaginal, anal, or oral sex is the most effective way to avoid getting chlamydia and other STDs (including HIV). (
  • To assess whether TC0438 and TC0439 are responsible for C. muridarum's ability to ascend to the UGT, I used the mouse vaginal model of infection with these hybrids. (
  • How accurate are patient-collected vaginal gonorrhea and chlamydia swabs in detecting infection? (
  • Patient-collected vaginal swabs are accurate-with a sensitivity of 92% and a specificity of 98% for chlamydia and a sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 97% for gonorrhea, when using provider-collected endocervical swabs as the gold standard (SOR: B, meta-analysis of cross-sectional studies). (

  • Overall, 0.7% of women had gonorrhea, and 4% had chlamydia. (
  • Furthermore, infants born to women with gonorrhea or chlamydia may suffer from ocular infections that cause blindness if left untreated. (
  • Gershman and Barrow 7 compared predictors of gonorrhea and chlamydia in young women attending family planning clinics in Colorado. (
  • However, these infections remain largely subclinical in approximately 70% of women and 50% of men and consequently are often not detected ( 3 ). (
  • Untreated chlamydia in women could cause permanent damage to the reproductive system. (
  • This clinical slide gallery contains graphic photographs of chlamydia infection of the genitals of both men & women. (
  • Chlamydia can affect men and women, although the symptoms may be different for both. (
  • Although we observed a low prevalence of CT infection among women with HIV, younger age was associated with a high risk of infection. (
  • However, the diagnosis of gonococcal and chlamydial infections can be difficult, especially among women, as approximately 70-80% of cases exhibit non-specific symptoms 5 ) ( 6 . (
  • Thus, the growing number of women with HIV, and the possibility of CT co-infection, may have strong effects on reproductive health in Brazil 18 . (
  • Therefore, the present study aimed to estimate the prevalence of CT infection among women with HIV, and to identify the risk factors associated with CT infection. (
  • However, a new Johns Hopkins Medicine study that looked at over 10,000 people who attended an STI clinic in Baltimore has found that the occurrence of gonorrhea or chlamydia in extragenital areas like the throat or rectum is also significant in women, particularly younger women. (
  • If the women examined in this study had only received genital STI tests - as is the standard recommendation - nearly 14 percent of chlamydia infections and more than 30 percent of gonorrhea infections would have been missed. (
  • The total prevalence of extragenital gonorrhea or chlamydia among the more than 4,000 women screened was 2.4 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively. (
  • This means we'd need to screen more women for extragenital infections, which may come with a higher price tag," says Ghanem. (
  • Young women in particular might benefit, as our analysis found that women who were 18 or younger had nearly fourfold increased odds of being diagnosed with an extragenital infection. (
  • Previous studies have shown that young women aged 15 to 19 have the highest rates of chlamydia infection in the country, and CDC recommends that all sexually active women age 25 and under be screened for chlamydia every year (and more frequently if they are at high risk for infection). (
  • In women, chlamydia infection tends to occur in the endocervical canal. (
  • Some women who have uncomplicated cervical chlamydia infection already have subclinical upper reproductive tract infections upon diagnosis. (
  • RESULTS: Among 881 participants (response rate of 24.5%), the overall Chlamydia trachomatis prevalence was low at 1.4% (95%CI 0.8-2.5%) but sexually active young (18-26 years) women had relatively high prevalence (5.8%, 95%CI 1.7-18.2%) in Hong Kong. (
  • The prevalence of Ab seropositivity increases with age so that 80% of men and 70% of women show evidence of prior infection by the age of 65 y ( 1 ). (
  • Chlamydia Infection Between Men and Women: A Cross-Sectional Study of Heterosexual Partnerships. (
  • In addition, these recommendations propose a national strategy for reducing the morbidity of chlamydial infections by detection and treatment and through the prevention of transmission to uninfected persons. (
  • All trials gave information about the percentages of people who took self-collected specimens for detection of chlamydia and gonorrhoea infections at home and those who took the test at a clinic. (
  • We conclude that well-designed studies of appropriate sample size, in different settings, are needed to further assess the effects of treatment of chlamydia infection in pregnancy. (
  • The applicability of the results regarding the treatment of Chlamydia infection is difficult to comment, because information about this condition in developing countries is very limited. (
  • The prevalence and predictors of gonorrhea and chlamydia infection differ significantly between blacks and whites. (
  • A comparison of predictors of gonorrhea and chlamydia infection in black and white females in a broad-based population would lead to better understanding of the racial disparity in risk of disease. (
  • Condom availability program in an inner city public school: effect on the rates of gonorrhea and chlamydia infection. (
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) persistence is the major cause of cervical cancer, but most HPV infections will not persist and risk factors for HPV persistence are not well known. (
  • Chlamydia (C.) trachomatis infection seems to also be associated with cervical cancer. (
  • Chlamydia may also be linked to cervical cancer . (
  • most people who have had HPV infections, however, do not develop cervical cancer. (
  • Infection with some types of HPV is the greatest risk factor for cervical cancer, followed by smoking. (
  • Infection with HPV is generally believed to be required for cervical cancer to occur. (
  • Send specimens from sites of infection to the lab for culture. (
  • Although Gram or methlene blue stains of plain smear specimens are usually rich in white blood cells, Chlamydia is found to be the cause of the infection in only half the patients. (
  • Cochrane authors reviewed evidence about the effects of self-collected specimens at home compared with specimens collected at clinic on the clinical management of chlamydia and gonorrhoea infections. (
  • Management of these infections might be easier to achieve if people can collect specimens at home and send or take them to a laboratory, rather than having to go to a clinic. (
  • In the home-based group 45 infections were detected and treated in a total of 778 people invited to collect specimens at home. (
  • Chlamydia are primarily pathogens of epithelial cells, however they can infect a range of cell types including smooth muscle cells, vascular endothelial cells, and immune cells, such as macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs) 2 ( 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 ). (
  • Via high resolution confocal analysis the infection with C. trachomatis was discovered to trigger profound changes in the epithelial mucosa, causing loss of cell adhesion and polarity. (
  • Phenotypic changes in non-infected cells suggest the existence of paracrine signalling during acute infection and change in epithelial homeostasis. (
  • The aim of this study was to test the ability of Ct to induce EMT in human conjunctival epithelial (HCjE) cells in vitro and investigate whether alterations in gene expression after Ct infection are correlated with DNA methylation of EMT related marker genes. (
  • How are chlamydial genitourinary infections (chlamydia) diagnosed? (
  • The genital pathogen Chlamydia is known to colonize the gastrointestinal tract. (
  • Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial pathogen worldwide, and there is a need to control this epidemic. (
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae is an intracellular respiratory pathogen, which, similar to Legionella, might have developed mechanisms to escape the intracellular bactericidal activity of both human host cells and amoeba. (
  • Here we show the expansion of the intracellular pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis , enabling to differentiate its two distinct forms, catabolic active reticulate bodies (RB) and infectious elementary bodies (EB), on a conventional confocal microscope. (
  • Pathogen infections have been studied mainly by diffraction-limited conventional microscopy. (
  • Here, we demonstrate the suitability of ExM to study the infection of intracellular pathogens and provide a protocol to expand the intracellular pathogen C. trachomatis and demonstrate its use by taking a closer look into its two distinct forms and at two important chlamydial effector proteins: CPAF and Cdu1. (
  • Administration of this complex of pathogen and adjuvant via a mucosal surface (e.g. in the nose) serves to inform memory cells in lymph nodes about the nature and location of the supposed infection. (
  • Chlamydia trachomatis is a Gram-negative obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen. (
  • Evidence of infectious asthma phenotype: Chlamydia-induced allergy and pathogen-specific IgE in a neonatal mouse model. (
  • In four of these cases, there was serological evidence of acute infection with at least one other respiratory pathogen. (
