Infection of human endothelial cells with Chlamydia pneumoniae stimulates transendothelial migration of neutrophils and monocytes. (1/1035)

We have previously shown that different isolates of Chlamydia pneumoniae display heterogeneity in the in vitro stimulation of chemokines and adhesion molecules from infected human endothelial cells. In the present study, we examined the ability of different isolates of C. pneumoniae to promote transendothelial migration of neutrophils and monocytes. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) were infected with low (<15)-passage C. pneumoniae isolates A-03, PS-32, and BR-393 and high (>40)-passage isolates BAL-16, TW-183, and T-2634, and levels of neutrophil and monocyte transendothelial migration were determined following 24 h of infection. Compared to mock-infected controls, significant increases in neutrophil migration were observed in response to most C. pneumoniae isolates examined (P < 0.001). Levels of monocyte migration were significantly increased in response to TW-183 and T-2634 (P < 0.001). Serial passage (>40 times) of the three low-passage isolates in HEp-2 cell cultures prior to infection of HUVEC generally resulted in the promotion of higher levels of neutrophil and monocyte transendothelial migration. These findings were compatible with differences observed in the extent of interleukin-8 (IL-8) and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1) stimulation between low- and high-passage A-03, PS-32, and BR-393. As opposed to C. pneumoniae, infection with C. trachomatis L2 caused only a slight increase in neutrophil transendothelial migration, which correlated with the lack of measurable IL-8 levels by this species. However, significant levels of monocyte migration were induced in response to C. trachomatis L2 despite a lack of measurable MCP-1 stimulation. C. trachomatis serovars A and E also failed to induce IL-8 and MCP-1 production in HUVEC. Results from this study indicate that the passage history of C. pneumoniae may play a role in the divergence of stimulatory activities observed among isolates in human endothelial cells. In addition, the differences observed between this organism and C. trachomatis suggest that the upregulation of IL-8 and MCP-1 in endothelial cells may be unique to C. pneumoniae.  (+info)

Chlamydia pneumoniae infection in human monocytes. (2/1035)

Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been associated with cardiovascular diseases in seroepidemiological studies and by demonstration of the pathogen in atherosclerotic lesions. It has the capacity to infect several cell types, including monocyte-derived macrophages, which play an essential role in the development of atherosclerosis. However, the persistence of C. pneumoniae in mononuclear cells is poorly understood. To study the morphology and biological characteristics of the infection, human peripheral blood monocytes were infected with C. pneumoniae. Freshly isolated monocytes resisted the development of infectious progeny, and confocal and transmission electron microscopy showed that the morphology of the inclusions and chlamydial particles was abnormal. Addition of tryptophan or antibodies against gamma interferon did not diminish the inhibition of C. pneumoniae, suggesting that other factors are involved in the chlamydiostatic activity of the monocytes. Chlamydial mRNA was expressed at least 3 days after infection, however, and a capability for infected monocytes to induce a positive lymphocyte proliferative response was detected for up to 7 days, indicating that C. pneumoniae remains metabolically active in the monocytes in vitro. These results are in accordance with the hypothesis that C. pneumoniae may participate in the maintenance of local immunological response and inflammation via infected monocytes and thus enhance atherosclerosis.  (+info)

Chlamydia pneumoniae and atherosclerosis. (3/1035)

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)

Chlamydia pneumoniae antibodies are associated with an atherogenic lipid profile. (4/1035)

OBJECTIVE: To determine, within a representative population group of men and women, whether alteration of the lipid profile might underlie the reported association between Chlamydia pneumoniae and ischaemic heart disease. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross sectional survey in an area with a high incidence of ischaemic heart disease. SUBJECTS: 400 randomly selected participants in the World Health Organisation MONICA project's third population survey in Northern Ireland. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Stored sera were examined by microimmunofluorescence for IgG antibodies to C pneumoniae at a dilution of 1 in 64. Mean total and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol were compared between seropositive and seronegative individuals with adjustment for age, measures of socioeconomic status, smoking habit, alcohol consumption, body mass index, and the season during which blood had been taken. RESULTS: In seropositive men, adjusted mean serum total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol were 0.5 mmol/l (9.2%) higher and 0.11 mmol/l (9.3%) lower, respectively, than in seronegative men. Differences in women did not achieve statistical significance, but both total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol were higher (3.6% and 5.8%, respectively) in seropositive than in seronegative individuals. CONCLUSIONS: There is serological evidence that C pneumoniae infection is associated with an atherogenic lipid profile in men. Altered lipid levels may underlie the association between C pneumoniae and ischaemic heart disease.  (+info)

Chronic infection with Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus: population based study of coronary heart disease. (5/1035)

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)

Elevated levels of C-reactive protein at discharge in patients with unstable angina predict recurrent instability. (6/1035)

BACKGROUND: In a group of patients admitted for unstable angina, we investigated whether C-reactive protein (CRP) plasma levels remain elevated at discharge and whether persistent elevation is associated with recurrence of instability. METHODS AND RESULTS: We measured plasma levels of CRP, serum amyloid A protein (SAA), fibrinogen, total cholesterol, and Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae antibody titers in 53 patients admitted to our coronary care unit for Braunwald class IIIB unstable angina. Blood samples were taken on admission, at discharge, and after 3 months. Patients were followed for 1 year. At discharge, CRP was elevated (>3 mg/L) in 49% of patients; of these, 42% had elevated levels on admission and at 3 months. Only 15% of patients with discharge levels of CRP <3 mg/L but 69% of those with elevated CRP (P<0.001) were readmitted because of recurrence of instability or new myocardial infarction. New phases of instability occurred in 13% of patients in the lower tertile of CRP (/=8.7 mg/L, P<0.001). The prognostic value of SAA was similar to that of CRP; that of fibrinogen was not significant. Chlamydia pneumoniae but not Helicobacter pylori antibody titers significantly correlated with CRP plasma levels. CONCLUSIONS: In unstable angina, CRP may remain elevated for at >/=3 months after the waning of symptoms and is associated with recurrent instability. Elevation of acute-phase reactants in unstable angina could represent a hallmark of subclinical persistent instability or of susceptibility to recurrent instability and, at least in some patients, could be related to chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection.  (+info)

Detection of Chlamydia pneumoniae but not cytomegalovirus in occluded saphenous vein coronary artery bypass grafts. (7/1035)

BACKGROUND: A causal relation between atherosclerosis and chronic infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae and/or cytomegalovirus (CMV) has been suggested. Whether the unresolved problem of venous coronary artery bypass graft occlusion is related to infection with C pneumoniae and/or CMV has not been addressed. METHODS AND RESUTLS: Thirty-eight occluded coronary artery vein grafts and 20 native saphenous veins were examined. Detection of C pneumoniae DNA was performed by use of nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Homogenisates from the specimen were cultured for identification of viable C pneumoniae. Both conventional PCR and quantitative PCR for detection of CMV DNA were applied. Differential pathological changes (degree of inflammation, smooth muscle cell proliferation [MIB-1]) were determined and correlated to the detection of both microorganisms. C pneumoniae DNA could be detected in 25% of occluded vein grafts. Viable C pneumoniae was recovered from 16% of occluded vein grafts. Except for 1 native saphenous vein, all control vessels were negative for both C pneumoniae detection and culture. All pathological and control specimens were negative for CMV DNA detection. Pathological changes did not correlate with C pneumoniae detection. CONCLUSIONS: Occluded aorto-coronary venous grafts harbor C pneumoniae but not CMV. The detection of C pneumoniae in occluded vein grafts warrants further investigation.  (+info)

Single channel analysis of recombinant major outer membrane protein porins from Chlamydia psittaci and Chlamydia pneumoniae. (8/1035)

We recently demonstrated that the major outer membrane protein of Chlamydia psittaci, the primary vaccine candidate for combating chlamydial infections, functions as a porin-like ion channel. In this study, we have cloned, expressed and functionally reconstituted recombinant major outer membrane proteins from C. psittaci and Chlamydia pneumoniae and analysed them at the single channel level. Both form porin-like ion channels that are functionally similar to those formed by native C. psittaci major outer membrane protein. Also, like the native channels, recombinant C. psittaci channels are modified by a native major outer membrane protein-specific monoclonal antibody. This is the first time that native function has been demonstrated for recombinant chlamydial major outer membrane proteins. Future bilayer reconstitution will provide a strategy for detailed structure/function studies of this new subclass of bacterial porins and the work also has important implications for successful protein refolding and the development of improved subunit vaccines.  (+info)

AIMS: To examine associations between Chlamydia pneumoniae IgA titres and incident coronary heart disease, and to compare them with associations previously reported between C. pneumoniae IgG titres and coronary heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: We measured serum concentrations of C. pneumoniae IgA antibodies in 502 coronary heart disease cases and in 1005 age- and town-matched controls nested in a community-based prospective study of 5661 British men (mean follow-up in controls, 16 years), and conducted a meta-analysis of published prospective studies to place our findings in context. Two hundred and twenty-one (44%) of the cases were in the top third of C. pneumoniae IgA titres compared with 336 (33%) of the controls, yielding an odds ratio for coronary heart disease of 1.84 (95% confidence interval 1.40-2.43) which was largely unchanged after adjustment. In aggregate, the present study and nine previously reported prospective studies of C. pneumoniae IgA titres involved 2283 cases, yielding a
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 human respiratory tract pathogen Chlamydia pneumoniae, which causes mild to severe infections, has been associated with the development of chronic inflammatory diseases. To understand the biology of C. pneumoniae infections, several studies have investigated the interaction between C. pneumoniae and professional phagocytes. However, these studies have been conducted under nonopsonizing conditions, making the role of opsonization in C. pneumoniae infections elusive. Thus, we analyzed complement and antibody opsonization of C. pneumoniae and evaluated how opsonization affects chlamydial infectivity and phagocytosis in human monocytes and neutrophils. We demonstrated that IgG antibodies and activation products of complement C3 and C4 are deposited on the surface of C. pneumoniae elementary bodies when incubated in human serum. Complement activation limits C. pneumoniae infectivity in vitro and has the potential to induce bacterial lysis by the formation of the membrane attack complex. Coculture ...
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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 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 ...
Mounting evidence supports the contention that atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory process that develops in response to a variety of injuries (25). A number of microbial organisms have been implicated in such pathogenesis. The strongest evidence to date for an association between an infectious agent and atherosclerosis is that for Chlamydia (Chlamydophila) pneumoniae (14), an obligate intracellular bacterium which is a causative agent of respiratory tract infections. However, there is still controversy regarding the possible involvement of C. pneumoniae in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Nevertheless, it has been shown seroepidemiologically that 50 to 80% of the adult population has had prior exposure to this pathogen (2, 24).. C. pneumoniae preferentially infects respiratory tract epithelial cells. While the pathogenic potential of this pathogen in the respiratory system is well established, several current studies suggest that the organism may disseminate from this site, probably ...

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.

Although heart disease was once thought to be caused solely by diet, lifestyle or genes, strong evidence now links infectious agents to heart disease with some research saying that 80% of HD is linked to infections primarily the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae, cytomegalovirus, h. pylori and herpes. Once nutritional deficiencies have compromised the body, it is easy for infections to set up housekeeping in the body. The key to resolving heart concerns are: rebuild the bodys nutrient bank, and clearing the infections.. ...

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 ...
Background: Preeclampsia is one of the complexities of maternal and neonatal health. The relation between chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae and Cytomegalovirus infections with atherosclerosis has been shown previously.. Objective: To evaluate the role of rising titer of cytomegalovirus and Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG in pathogenesis and timing of onset of preeclampsia.. Methods: A case-control study carried out in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Al-Yarmouk Teaching Hospital (Baghdad-Iraq) for one year from the 1st of October 2014 to the 30th of September 2015. The study included 120 pregnant women who were divided into: study group that subdivided into early onset preeclampsia (group I): included 30 singleton pregnant women presented with clinical onset of preeclampsia 28-33+6 weeks gestation and late onset preeclampsia (group II): included 30 singleton pregnant women presented with clinical onset of preeclampsia ≥ 34 weeks gestation.

Although more than 100 Chlamydia pneumoniae hypothetical proteins have been predicted to be inclusion membrane proteins, only a few have been experimentally demonstrated to be in the inclusion membrane. Using antibodies raised with fusion proteins, we characterized four such hypothetical proteins encoded by two gene clusters (Cpn0146-147 and Cpn0284-285) in the C. pneumoniae genome. Results. Cpn0146 and 0147 were detected in the inclusion membrane while Cpn0284 and 0285 inside inclusion and mainly associated with reticulate bodies although all four proteins contain an N-terminal bi-lobed hydrophobic ...

N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2020 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 1997/2. Y1 - 1997/2. N2 - Recent observations have shown that both Chlamydia pneumoniae antigens and DNA may be found within atherosclerotic lesions. In this study, we evaluated the ability of C. pneumoniae to infect cells that make up atherosclerotic lesions, including endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and cholesterol-loaded smooth muscle cells. The organism readily infected rabbit, bovine, and human aortic smooth muscle cells. Cholesterol-loaded smooth muscle cells were even more susceptible to C. pneumoniae infection. Chlamydia trachomatis inefficiently infected smooth muscle cells, demonstrating that this is not a characteristic of all members of the genus Chlamydia, C. pneumoniae infected bovine endothelial cells poorly. This study ...
PCR methods.Holland et al. (31) developed a major outer membrane protein (MOMP)-based PCR test that could identify three species of Chlamydia (C. trachomatis, C. pneumoniae, and C. psittaci) using three primer pairs and one restriction enzyme digestion.. Rasmussen et al. (73) described a protocol that amplifies a conserved genus-specific target of the chlamydial MOMP gene followed by restriction enzyme digestion for species identification.. Watson et al. (89) developed a PCR assay based on amplification of the 60-kDa cysteine-rich outer membrane protein genes of C. psittaci, C. pneumoniae, and C. trachomatis, followed by species differentiation with four restriction endonuclease digestion enzymes. Similarly, Tjhie et al. (84) developed a general PCR with a target within the MOMP gene. Subsequent species-specific differentiation of C. trachomatis, C. pneumoniae, and C. psittaciwas performed by hybridization of the amplified PCR product with internal probes.. Several of the early methods described ...

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) ...

Employing a nested case-control design, baseline plasma samples are assayed for four markers of inflammation (interleukin-6, TNF-alpha, soluble ICAM, soluble VCAM) and four markers of chronic infection (antibody titers directed against Chlamydia pneumoniae, Helicobacter pylori, Herpes simplex virus, and cytomegalovirus). Case subjects are those study participants who have subsequently developed MI (N=550), CVA (N=400), or VTE (N=200). Control subjects are selected from those study participants who remained healthy during follow-up and are matched to the cases by age, smoking status, and follow-up time. Data on usual cardiovascular risk factors, lipid parameters, and hemostatic markers of risk are already available in the PHS and will be used to evaluate the results for potential confounding and effect modification. Since the PHS was a randomized trial of low-dose aspirin for its initial 5 years, this cohort also provides the unique opportunity to investigate whether the use of an agent with ...
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.
