Randomized secondary prevention trial of azithromycin in patients with coronary artery disease: primary clinical results of the ACADEMIC study. (1/356)

BACKGROUND: Chlamydia pneumoniae is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), although its causal role is uncertain. A small preliminary study reported a >50% reduction in ischemic events by azithromycin, an antibiotic effective against C pneumoniae, in seropositive CAD patients. We tested this prospectively in a larger, randomized, double-blind study. METHODS AND RESULTS: CAD patients (n=302) seropositive to C pneumoniae (IgG titers >/=1:16) were randomized to placebo or azithromycin 500 mg/d for 3 days and then 500 mg/wk for 3 months. The primary clinical end point included cardiovascular death, resuscitated cardiac arrest, nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, unstable angina, and unplanned coronary revascularization at 2 years. Treatment groups were balanced, and azithromycin was generally well tolerated. During the trial, 47 first primary events occurred (cardiovascular death, 9; resuscitated cardiac arrest, 1; MI, 11; stroke, 3; unstable angina, 4; and unplanned coronary revascularization, 19), with 22 events in the azithromycin group and 25 in the placebo group. There was no significant difference in the 1 primary end point between the 2 groups (hazard ratio for azithromycin, 0.89; 95% CI, 0.51 to 1.61; P:=0.74). Events included 9 versus 7 occurring within 6 months and 13 versus 18 between 6 and 24 months in the azithromycin and placebo groups, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that antibiotic therapy with azithromycin is not associated with marked early reductions (>/=50%) in ischemic events as suggested by an initial published report. However, a clinically worthwhile benefit (ie, 20% to 30%) is still possible, although it may be delayed. Larger (several thousand patient), longer-term (>/=3 to 5 years) antibiotic studies are therefore indicated.  (+info)

Cytomegalovirus seropositivity and C-reactive protein have independent and combined predictive value for mortality in patients with angiographically demonstrated coronary artery disease. (2/356)

BACKGROUND: The role of inflammation in coronary artery disease (CAD) is being increasingly recognized. Markers of inflammation (eg, C-reactive protein [CRP]) and infection (eg, seropositivity to Chlamydia pneumoniae, cytomegalovirus [CMV], and Helicobacter pylori) have been proposed as risk factors for CAD, but these associations require further evaluation. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively tested whether CRP levels and IgG seropositivity to C pneumoniae, CMV, and H pylori are predictors of subsequent mortality in 985 consecutive patients with angiographically demonstrated CAD (stenosis >/=70%). Patients were followed for an average of 2.7 years (range 1.5 to 4.0 years). Patients averaged 65 years of age; 77% were men; and 110 (11.2%) died during follow-up. CRP levels were significantly elevated in nonsurvivors compared with survivors (mean CRP 3.1 mg/dL versus 1.5 mg/dL, P:=0.003). After controlling for all known baseline variables, the 2nd and 3rd tertiles of CRP compared with the 1st produced a Cox hazard ratio (HR) for mortality of 2.4 (P:=0.001). Of the 3 infectious markers tested, only seropositivity to CMV (HR=1.9, P:<0.05) was predictive of mortality. The majority of mortality risk associated with elevated CRP or CMV seropositivity occurred when both risk factors were present (P: for trend <0.0001). Other independent predictors of increased risk of mortality were age (HR=1.07 per year, P:<0.0001), left ventricular ejection fraction (HR=0.97 per percent, P:<0.0001), and diabetes mellitus (HR=1.7, P:=0.02). CONCLUSIONS: CMV seropositivity and elevated CRP, especially when in combination, are strong, independent predictors of mortality in patients with CAD. This suggests an interesting hypothesis that a chronic, smoldering infection (CMV) might have the capacity to accelerate the atherothrombotic process.  (+info)

Naturally occurring lesions of the uterine tube in sheep and serologic evidence of exposure to Chlamydophila abortus. (3/356)

The uterine tubes from 405 ewes, collected at an abattoir, were assessed grossly and microscopically for abnormalities that correlated with serological evidence of exposure to Chlamydophila abortus. Gross lesions were found in 41 ewes and 86 had microscopic lesions. Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) of serum was used as an indication of exposure of individual ewes to C. abortus; 52 were found to be positive. Chi-squared analysis indicated no association between EIA-positive animals and lesions of the uterine tube.  (+info)

Unstable atherosclerotic plaques contain T-cells that respond to Chlamydia pneumoniae. (4/356)

OBJECTIVE: Atherosclerotic lesions are characterized by an immune mediated chronic inflammation. Seroepidemiological studies support a relationship between atherosclerotic disease and infection with C. pneumoniae; an association further endorsed by immunocytochemical and DNA directed studies. However, the question arises whether C. pneumoniae acts as a causal antigen, or is merely a bystander. For this reason we have analyzed the T lymphocyte population of carotid atherosclerotic plaques of symptomatic patients for their response against C. pneumoniae. METHODS: T cell lines were generated from carotid endarterectomy tissues obtained from eight patients with symptomatic disease. The response of these T cell lines against C. pneumoniae elementary bodies was analyzed by 3H-thymidine incorporation. T cell clones were generated by limiting dilution from the cell lines of three patients and tested for antigen specificity in the same manner. Furthermore, cytokine profiles (Th1/Th0/Th2) were established by measuring the production of IFN-gamma and IL-4. RESULTS: Of the eight T-cell lines five responded to C. pneumoniae. Eighteen of 69 CD4-positive clones, generated from three patients with a positive T cell lines response, responded to C. pneumoniae also. The majority (17/18, 96%) of these clones showed a Th1 cytokine profile. CONCLUSION: These results show that in a subpopulation of symptomatic patients C. pneumoniae can activate T cells within atherosclerotic plaques suggesting that a C. pneumoniae enhanced proinflammatory Th1 response contributes to plaque destabilization in these patients.  (+info)

Cardiovascular infection by Chlamydia pneumoniae is not related to apolipoprotein E genotype. (5/356)

Chlamydia pneumoniae is detectable in the blood vessels of patients suffering from arteriosclerosis. Risk for arteriosclerosis is modulated by the apolipoprotein E (apoE) allele. We assessed the significance of the apoE genotype as a risk factor for vascular C. pneumoniae infection by determining the genotype of 30 coronary heart disease patients with PCR-proven C. pneumoniae infection of coronary artery tissue. The apoE genotype is not distinctly associated with an increased risk for vascular C. pneumoniae infection.  (+info)

Atherosclerosis in apoE knockout mice infected with multiple pathogens. (6/356)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP) possibly contribute to atherosclerosis. Murine CMV (MCMV) and CP increase lesion size in apoE knockout mice. In this study, apoE knockout mice were infected with MCMV and CP to determine whether infection with multiple pathogens increases lesion size to a greater extent than either pathogen alone and whether infection with MCMV changes serum cytokine levels in a manner that could increase lesion development. One group of mice received MCMV at 2 weeks of age, followed by 2 doses of CP at 6 and 8 weeks of age. Additional groups received only MCMV or CP. Animals were killed at 16 weeks of age to determine lesion area. Infection with MCMV alone, CP alone, and both MCMV and CP increased lesion size 84% (P<.001), 70% (P<.0001), and 45% (P<.01), respectively. The MCMV-induced increase in circulating levels of interferon-gamma may have contributed to this increase.  (+info)

Effect of azithromycin on murine arteriosclerosis exacerbated by Chlamydia pneumoniae. (7/356)

Chlamydia pneumoniae infection can exacerbate atherosclerosis in animals. To test the hypothesis that antibiotic therapy inhibits the atherogenic effects of C. pneumoniae infection, 10-week-old apolipoprotein E (ApoE) null mice were infected with C. pneumoniae or placebo, were treated for 2 weeks after infection with azithromycin or placebo, and were killed at 20 weeks of age. Infection did not affect the size of the aortic lesion, and antibiotic treatment had no effect. Another group of mice, 12-week-old ApoE mice, were infected with C. pneumoniae or placebo, were treated for 2 weeks after infection with azithromycin or placebo, and were killed at 26 weeks of age. C. pneumoniae infection increased the size of the lesion in infected mice, but azithromycin did not reduce the size of the aortic lesion in infected mice. Therefore, immediate therapy of acute infection may be necessary to prevent the proatherogenic effects of C. pneumoniae infection.  (+info)

Chlamydia pneumoniae and the lung. (8/356)

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a frequently occurring respiratory pathogen affecting all age groups. It may cause 5-20% of community-acquired pneumonias in adults and children. The organism has also been implicated as an infectious trigger for asthma. Furthermore, new studies suggest that it may play a role in the pathogenesis of several chronic diseases including atherosclerosis. However, despite the growing significance of C. pneumoniae as a pathogen, progress is hampered by the lack of standardized diagnostic methods including serology and polymerase chain reaction. This makes it practically impossible for the practitioner to make a specific microbiological diagnosis. The lack of standardized methods has also had an adverse effect on treatment trials. The dependence on serology for diagnosis in treatment studies has generated some questionable results. Unless cultures are performed, microbiological efficacy cannot be assessed and it may never be possible to survey for or document the emergence of resistance.  (+info)

N2 - The lack of standardization in chlamydia serology has made interpretation of published data difficult. This study was initiated to determine the extent of interlaboratory variation of microimmunofluorescence (MIF) test results for the serodiagnosis of Chlamydia pneumoniae infections. Identical panels of 22 sera were sent to 14 laboratories in eight countries for the determination of IgG and IgM antibodies by MIF. Although there was extensive variation in the numeric titer values, the overall ...
Different serological methods are being used, and the different results may be related to the choice of method.Some investigators have used methods detecting the species-specific MOMP antibodies (4, 11, 14, 22, 23), and some have used methods detecting the genus-specific LPS antibodies (5, 11, 17, 22). The MIF technique has generally been regarded as a "gold standard" for the detection of C. pneumoniae antibodies in seroepidemiological studies. However, MIF methods differ from commercial methods to in-house MIF techniques, and the antigen composition varies between tests. In addition, some authors have focused on IgA positivity, some have focused on IgG, and some have used a combination of the two.. The use of several different methods would be no problem if the agreement between the tests is generally high. Our observations regarding the number of seropositives obtained by the different methods suggest that the sensitivity of the MIF method was higher than that of the Labsystems EIA, while the ...

One hundred eight children with a history of asthma-related symptoms were followed longitudinally for 13 months. Subjects kept a daily diary of symptoms and peak flow rates, and when asthma-related symptoms occurred an investigator was contacted for collection of nasal aspirates. A total of 292 samples were collected during symptomatic episodes and a total of 65 children provided a sample when asymptomatic. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to identify the presence of C pneumoniae and M pneumoniae. The presence of secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA) specific to C pneumoniae was also detected. ...
Chlamydophila psittaci, the causing agent of avian chlamydiosis, occurs worldwide and has been detected in a wide variety of both wild and domestic birds. However, other clamydiae also have a zoonotic potential (3).. Chlamydophila pecorum strains have been isolated from ruminants, swine and koalas in several countries. C. pecorum is associated with conjunctivitis, encephalomyelitis, enteritis, pneumonia, polyarthritis, abortion, and reproductive and urinary tract diseases (1,3,8). In an assay carried out in free healthy pigeons in Japan, three fecal samples were found to be C. pecorum-positive by PCR (7).. The epidemiology of Chlamydia infection in animals in Argentina is unknown. Thus, the aim of the present study was to detect Chlamydia spp. in illegally captive birds in Córdoba city, Argentina.. Cloacal swabs were collected from 28 birds living in illegal captivity without any clinical signs or evidence of chlamydiosis and were referred to the Instituto de Virología, Facultad de Ciencias ...
Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 1997 Nov;17(11):2910-3. Related Articles, Links Chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection is associated with a serum lipid profile known to be a risk factor for atherosclerosis.. Laurila A, Bloigu A, Nayha S, Hassi J, Leinonen M, Saikku P.. National Public Health Institute, Oulu, Finland.. Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been associated with coronary heart disease. To evaluate the mechanisms of this association, we studied whether chronic C. pneumoniae infection affects serum lipid values similarly to acute infections. Triglyceride, total and HDL cholesterol concentrations, and C. pneumoniae antibodies were measured from paired serum samples of 415 Finnish males taken 3 years apart. Chronic infection, defined as persistent IgG and IgA antibodies, was found in 20%, and the antibodies were negative (IgG , 32 and IgA , 16 in both samples) in 15% of the cases studied. The serum triglyceride and total cholesterol concentrations were higher in the subjects with a chronic ...
Respiratory infections precipitate wheezing in many asthmatic patients and may be involved in the aetiopathogenesis of asthma. Several studies have demonstrated that viral infections may provoke asthma. Bacterial infections seem to play a minor role. However, Chlamydia pneumoniae has been recently reported as a possible cause of asthma. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of C. pneumoniae infection in acute exacerbations of asthma in adults. Seventy four adult out-patients with a diagnosis of acute exacerbation of asthma were studied. Acute and convalescent (, or = 3 weeks) serological determination of antibodies to cytomegalovirus, respiratory syncytial virus, adenovirus, influenza A and B, parainfluenza 1 and 3, Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila were performed by means of immunofluorescence tests. C. pneumoniae specific antibodies were detected by two microimmunofluorescence tests using a specific antigen (TW-183) and a kit with three chlamydial antigens. ...
Objective: To investigate the association between Chlamydia pneumoniae and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in atherosclerotic plaques.. Design: 31 coronary atherosclerotic plaque specimens were studied by immunohistochemistry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and reverse transcription PCR for the presence of C pneumoniae antigen and genomic DNA, and of MMP-9 protein and transcripts.. Results: Immunohistochemical analysis identified a strong association between the presence of C pneumoniae antigen and production of MMP-9 in coronary atherosclerotic plaques (p = 0.001). Furthermore, analysis of the intralesional amount of C pneumoniae and MMP-9 indicated an increased number of cells positive for MMP-9 in arterial sections that had increased C pneumoniae positivity (p , 0.05).. Conclusions: This study provides evidence of an association between expression of MMP-9 and the intravascular presence of C pneumoniae and may suggest a potential pathological mechanism whereby C pneumoniae may contribute ...

BACKGROUND:. Recent studies have associated evidence of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection with coronary and carotid atherosclerosis and evidence of increased infection with cytomegalovirus (CMV) in patients developing restenosis or with atherosclerosis. Several other common pathogens have been less consistently associated with atherosclerosis. Altered parameters of inflammation and hemostasis have been identified as prognostic factors of myocardial infarction and have been linked as possible pathogenetic mechanisms. Recent studies have indicated that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with coronary artery disease frequently include Chlamydia pneumoniae DNA and stimulation of PBMCs can reflect an unsuccessful host cellular immune response to CMV associated with elevated C-reactive protein (CRP).. DESIGN NARRATIVE:. The study has both a nested case-control design and a nested cohort design within the Strong Heart Study (SHS), an ongoing cohort study of 4,549 American Indians. The ...

The citrate cycle (TCA cycle, Krebs cycle) is an important aerobic pathway for the final steps of the oxidation of carbohydrates and fatty acids. The cycle starts with acetyl-CoA, the activated form of acetate, derived from glycolysis and pyruvate oxidation for carbohydrates and from beta oxidation of fatty acids. The two-carbon acetyl group in acetyl-CoA is transferred to the four-carbon compound of oxaloacetate to form the six-carbon compound of citrate. In a series of reactions two carbons in citrate are oxidized to CO2 and the reaction pathway supplies NADH for use in the oxidative phosphorylation and other metabolic processes. The pathway also supplies important precursor metabolites including 2-oxoglutarate. At the end of the cycle the remaining four-carbon part is transformed back to oxaloacetate. According to the genome sequence data, many organisms seem to lack genes for the full cycle [MD:M00009], but contain genes for specific segments [MD:M00010 M00011 ...

A feature of this study was the careful control of PCR inhibition. DNA extracts of coronary arteries caused significant levels of PCR inhibition, associated particularly with severe atherosclerosis. Lipid and particularly calcium were the main sources of inhibition, illustrating the importance of using PCR inhibition controls when studying atheroma lesions of differing severity. A similar use of λ DNA for this purpose was recently reported by another group.15 Inhibition was eliminated in all but 1 case by 10-fold dilution, but this was associated with a reduction in chlamydial detection from 39% to 29%. As reported by others,4 16 repeated testing of samples by PCR did not always produce consistent results. We attribute this to the low amounts of C pneumoniae DNA present in coronary arteries, to the sampling errors arising from use of small sample volumes, and to PCR inhibition. Our strategy of testing all samples in triplicate should have reduced any resulting underestimation of the prevalence ...
In the present study, we showed that the presence of an elevated level of IgA antibodies against human Hsp60 protein predicts a coronary event several years before the coronary event actually occurs. Researchers at Wicks laboratory have studied the role of microbial Hsp60 in the development of atherosclerosis. Their studies indicate that immunization with mycobacterial Hsp65 induces atherosclerosis in laboratory animals.3,4⇓ In humans, they have found that immunity to mycobacterial Hsp65 is associated with the pathogenesis of carotid5 and coronary6 atherosclerosis. Hsp65 antibodies were found more often in patients with atherosclerotic lesions than in persons without such lesions,5 and the presence of these antibodies also predicted carotid atherosclerosis.7,8⇓ It has been shown that these antibodies cross-react with E coli Hsp60, chlamydial Hsp60, and human Hsp60 antibodies and are cytotoxic to endothelial cells.9 In the present study, we confirmed these findings and extended them to apply ...

Im new to the forum (but not new to chronic illness...). Ive been unwell for just over 20 years with ME/CFSi. In that time Ive explored various causes for my symptoms and tried the usual gamut of treatments, at least those that seemed rational at the time. In recent years Ive become hypersensitive to medications and supplementsi, so Ive slowed down my turnover of treatments as many times I cant tolerate them.. Several years ago my doctor ran a panel of PCRi tests and the only one that came back positive was Cpni. I then did a treatment with Sulfoxime and Dioxychor infusions x 3 and retested twice. The test reported negative both times, but I remained unwell. From what I understand so far, it may be possible for there to be reservoirs of infection in deep tissue meaning a peripheral blood PCR may represent a false negative?. Last year I decided to investigate for Cpn again and we did the Infectolab Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot lymphocyte transformation test. The lab result was +14 (ref ,2) ...

The order Chlamydiales contains at least four distinct family groups: Chlamydiaceae, Simkaniaceae, Waddliaceae and Parachlamydiaceae. Within the family Chlamydiaceae there are two distinct genera: Chlamydia and Chlamydophila. The Chlamydophila genus has seven recognised species, namely Chlamydophila pecorum, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Chlamydophila psittaci, Chlamydophila abortus, Chlamydophila caviae (formerly Chlamydophila psittaci guinea pig conjunctivitis strain) and Chlamydophila felis[1, 2].. A unique developmental cycle distinguishes Chlamydophila from other intracellular bacteria [3]. The infectious elementary body (EB) and the vegetative reticulate body (RB) are two major developmental forms involved in the cycle. One of the predominant proteins found on the surface of both the EB and RB forms is the major outer membrane protein (MOMP, OmpA). MOMP makes up 60% of the total outer membrane protein [4], and published data have indicated that it is critical for chlamydial infection ...

The DNA of other species (Chlamydophila pneumoniae and Chlamydia trachomatis) was also investigated ...
There are many reasons not to keep pet parrots. Theyre long-lived birds that require years, if not decades, of care. They can be messy and destructive. And, above all, many species are in danger of extinction and quelching the market for them is one helpful thing we can do. But, todays parasite is another reason. Chlamydophila psittaci is a species of bacteria that causes a very serious disease in both birds and mammals, including humans, known as psittacosis. These bacteria have a pretty unusual life cycle - they alternate between being intracellular bacteria in the lungs of their hosts and very resistant stages known as "elementary bodies." When engulfed by phagocytosis and attacked with a lysosome, the elementary bodies say "Ha!" and just begin to replicate instead - even going so far as to use some of the host cells own organelles. Eventually they kill the host cell and become elementary bodies again, ready to reinfect this host or be spread to another one. In 1929, a major outbreak of ...

Background: Our previous investigations have identified an association between brain infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cpn) and late-onset Alzheimer disease (AD). We have demonstrated that Cpn is detectable in AD brain tissues in a variety of cell types including neurons, glia, endothelial cells, and perivascular macrophages. In addition, Cpn has been identified within monocytes from human blood samples from geriatric patients who have demonstrated cognitive change. As we have seen Cpn infection in both peripheral cells and in autopsy brain tissues, this study sought to further understand the initiation of neuroinflammation by using our in vitro infection model. Methods: Human THP-1 monocytes were infected with Cpn to establish acute (24hr) to chronic/persistent (120 hr) infections. Host responses following infection were analyzed using ELISA for inflammatory cytokines. Molecular analysis consisted of evaluating host gene transcript changes using commercial human neuroinflammation and inflammasome

In the present study, the relationship between airway inflammation and infection with C. pneumoniae in acute asthma was examined. It was found that over one-third of adults presenting with acute severe asthma showed a rise in C. pneumoniae-specific antibodies consistent with acute infection, reinfection or reactivation of latent infection with C. pneumoniae. These subjects exhibited a more intense inflammatory response during the acute exacerbation, with an increase in sputum TCC, neutrophil count and ECP level compared to subjects with acute asthma who did not show an increase in C. pneumoniae antibody levels.. Subjects were recruited from patients presenting to the emergency department with acute asthma, who had at least moderate airflow obstruction, representing a group with more severe acute asthma. This group was selected for study based on previous work linking C. pneumoniae infection with asthma exacerbations and severe asthma 6, 7, 14. The sputum induction time tended to be shorter at ...

The microimmunofluorescence technique (MIF) is recognized as the only test hitherto allowing discrimination between different Chlamydia species and is considered to be the reference method for serology. This method was developed for the detection of IgG and IgM antibodies only. We investigated the effects of some test parameters on the ability of MIF to detect Chlamydia pneumoniae IgA. These parameters were the time needed for binding of serum IgA to C. pneumoniae antigen and the effect of antigen concentration on the outcome of IgA antibody testing. It was found that the most sensitive MIF tests for the detection of serum IgA antibodies were those in which an overnight incubation of sera with antigen slides containing high concentrations of chlamydial elementary bodies was employed. The number of patients with chronic infections found to have elevated IgA titers was increased by 25% using longer incubation times for the antibody-antigen reaction. Thirty-two sera from patients with coronary ...

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), characterised by a severe dysfunction of the heart muscle, often results from a myocarditis, which could be caused by a variety of organisms or mediated by autoimmune responses to the exposure of cardiac specific antigen, such as myosin, after cardiomyocyte damage. DCM of humans can be experimentally reproduced in susceptible mouse strains by immunisation with purified cardiac myosin.1 Moreover, chlamydia infection may mediate heart disease through an antigenic mimicry between the chlamydia outer membrane protein and muscle specific α myosin of the heart.2 The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection by measuring the serum IgG and IgA antibodies against C pneumoniae in patients with DCM.. Twenty six consecutive patients with DCM, aged 56.9 (15.5) years, diagnosed according to the World Health Organization/International Society and Federation of Cardiology criteria,3 were enrolled. Twenty eight healthy subjects, mean (SD) ...

In response to these tests, Dr. R has prescribed azithromycin, to be taken for three weeks, beginning 8/28. It should clear up the Chlamydia pneumoniae. Also, he thinks that if I do indeed have Lyme, it could cause enough of a die-off that the dead bacteria will be released into my bloodstream, thereby causing my immune system to mount an antibody response, which will then show up on a repeated IgM test.

A major risk factor which may contribute to Cp. psittaci zoonotic transmission concerns the fact that when pigeons increase their egg-laying rate there is a concomitant increase in bacterial excretion during egg incubation and chick feeding (12,19,20). This is particularly serious considering that residences windows and air conditioning spaces, especially bedrooms, are used by pigeons during breeding and feeding. Heddema et al., 2006 (19) reported that 5 %-10 % of pigeons faecal samples in urban populations in Amsterdam were infected with Cp. psittaci, although this work did not show zoonotic transmission events. However, the bacteria was detected directly in exposed populations clinical samples and faecal samples from birds collected by participants in this study which could have represented direct evidence of zoonotic transmission from birds to humans. Given that conventional serological, PCR-RFLP and real-time PCR techniques do not allow accurate discrimination of currently-known genotypes ...

The first case of bovine chlamydial abortion was reported in canton Graubunden, Switzerland. In this region, Chlamydophila (Cp.) abortus is endemic in small ruminants. So the incidence of chlamydia-related abortions in cattle from this region was evaluated in this brandnew study - and a potential zoonotic risk was detected.
This idea of the C. abortus becoming latent in the host ewe is a concern as it means that when buying in new animals, great care needs to be taken when sourcing replacement stock. Once in a flock the disease is difficult to eradicate. While initially only one or two animals may lose their lambs during initial season, the ease of transmission and difficult of diagnosis may eventually lead to an outbreak of up to 30% losses in one season. These losses can be reduced by the use of antibiotics in the midst of lambing time, however the damage already done to the tissues involved in the infection are irreversible and vaccination still remains the best option ...

BACKGROUND:: The risk for coronary events may rise during acute infection. Perturbation in coronary endothelial function emerges as one important link. We investigated whether simvastatin could protect the coronary arterial function from the adverse effects of acute infection in swine. METHODS:: Coronary endothelium-dependent and -independent vasomotor responses were assessed by Doppler velocimetry in 12 Chlamydia pneumoniae-infected and 6 sham-infected swine 2 weeks after intratracheal inoculation. Half of animals from the infection group were pre-treated with simvastatin (80mg daily), while the remaining animals received placebo. The treatment was started 2 weeks prior to inoculation and continued until the end of the study. ANOVA was used for statistical calculations. Data are mean+/-S.D. RESULTS:: All animals inoculated with C. pneumoniae developed IgM antibodies against this organism. As compared to noninfected animals, peak-to-baseline coronary flow velocity (CFV) ratio after bradykinin ...
Chlamydia pecorum is a globally recognised pathogen of livestock and koalas. To date, comparative genomics of C. pecorum strains from sheep, cattle and koalas has revealed that only single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and a limited number of pseudogenes appear to contribute to the genetic diversity of this pathogen. No chlamydial plasmid has been detected in these strains despite its ubiquitous presence in almost all other chlamydial species. Genomic analyses have not previously included C. pecorum from porcine hosts. We sequenced the genome of three C. pecorum isolates from pigs with differing pathologies in order to re-evaluate the genetic differences and to update the phylogenetic relationships between C. pecorum from each of the hosts. Whole genome sequences for the three porcine C. pecorum isolates (L1, L17 and L71) were acquired using C. pecorum-specific sequence capture probes with culture-independent methods, and assembled in CLC Genomics Workbench. The pairwise

Innate immune responses play important roles in host defense against S. pneumoniae infection. In this study, we elucidated the mechanism of caspase-1 activation in macrophages infected with PLY-producing S. pneumoniae. We found that ASC inflammasomes, including both AIM2 and NLRP3, but not TLR4, are indispensable for inducing the activation of caspase-1 and the maturation and secretion of IL-1β and IL-18 and for pyroptosis. In addition, our results clearly demonstrate the essential requirement for ASC for the secretion of IL-1β and IL-18 into the BALF in a mouse model of pneumococcal pneumonia. We also showed that the absence of ASC results in a significant increase in the susceptibility to S. pneumoniae infection in vivo. Thus, this study revealed a novel role of ASC inflammasomes in mediating host resistance to pneumococcal pneumonia, most likely through the induction of the protective cytokines IL-1β and IL-18.. In contrast to our results, PLY has been shown to inhibit the production of ...

AU - Kass, Philip H. AU - Lappin, Michael R.. AU - Rogers, Quinton. AU - Waldron, Mark K.. AU - Fascetti, Andrea J. PY - 2007/4. Y1 - 2007/4. N2 - To determine the effectiveness of dietary lysine supplementation in cats with enzootic upper respiratory disease (URD), 50 cats were fed a ration containing 11 or 51 g lysine/kg diet for 52 days. Food intake, body weight, clinical signs, plasma amino acid concentrations and presence of Chlamydophila felis or feline herpesvirus (FHV)-1 DNA within the conjunctival fornix were assessed. Food and lysine intake of both dietary groups decreased between days 17 and 22, coinciding with peak disease and viral presence. Mean disease score for cats fed the supplemented ration (0.94) was higher than for those fed the basal diet (0.21); however, this could be attributed to a ...

  • Given these reports and the need to identify and understand causative factors for sporadic late-onset AD, much inquiry is needed to determine the mechanisms by which these different infections can initiate and participate in the pathogenesis of AD. (news-medical.net)
  • Currently, evidence from research on Chlamydia pneumoniae, Herpes Simplex Virus 1, and Borrelia burgdorferi in the AD brain, links numerous risk factors with infection to the pathogenesis of AD. (news-medical.net)
  • Work from other laboratories on systemic infectious disease (Kamer et al 2008, Cunningham et al, 2005) has also led to further interest in the role that infection may play in contributing to the neurodegenerative process in older populations. (news-medical.net)
  • There are some reports that even systemic infections may correlate to increased incidence of AD and infection with Helicobacter pylori, the agent of gastric ulcers and Porphyromonas gingivalis, an agent of periodontitis, have been studied in late-onset disease (see Honjo et al, 2009, Kim et al, 2007 for review).
