Single channel analysis of recombinant major outer membrane protein porins from Chlamydia psittaci and Chlamydia pneumoniae. (1/396)

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)

Role of polymorphonuclear neutrophils in a murine model of Chlamydia psittaci-induced abortion. (2/396)

To assess the role of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) in Chlamydia psittaci infection in a pregnant mouse model, pregnant and nonpregnant Swiss OF1 mice were depleted of PMNs by treatment with the RB6-8C5 monoclonal antibody before intraperitoneal infection with C. psittaci serotype 1. Nondepleted mice served as infection controls. Depleted mice aborted earlier and had a much higher mortality rate than nondepleted mice. Bacteriological analysis showed that the number of chlamydiae isolated from the spleens of depleted mice at 5 and 7 days postinfection was 100 times greater than that isolated from nondepleted mice. Histopathological analysis of the placentas of depleted mice showed widespread necrosis of the uteroplacental units, with weak immunoreaction to chlamydial antigen, while the placentas of nondepleted mice showed substantial neutrophil infiltration but no large areas of necrosis, with moderate to strong immunoreaction to chlamydial antigen. The livers of depleted mice showed numerous chlamydial inclusions in the hepatocytes, delayed microgranuloma formation, and in the pregnant animals extensive coagulative periportal necrosis. The livers of nondepleted mice displayed multiple small foci of PMNs and mononuclear cells with microgranuloma formation. Among this group of mice, the pregnant animals always had more hepatic damage than nonpregnant animals. Our results suggest that PMNs play an essential role in the response to C. psittaci primary infection, preventing the uncontrolled multiplication of chlamydiae in the liver and spleen.  (+info)

The species specificity of the microimmunofluorescence antibody test and comparisons with a time resolved fluoroscopic immunoassay for measuring IgG antibodies against Chlamydia pneumoniae. (3/396)

AIMS: To examine the species specificity of the microimmunofluorescence test (MIF) and assess a time resolved fluoroscopic immunoassay (TRIA) for measuring IgG antibodies to C pneumoniae. METHODS: Sera from 1020 subjects were tested by MIF for IgG, IgM, and IgA antibodies to C pneumoniae, C trachomatis, and C psittaci; 501 serum samples were also tested by TRIA for IgG antibodies to C pneumoniae. RESULTS: C pneumoniae antibody titres as measured by MIF were correlated with those for C psittaci and trachomatis. It was estimated that on average, one third of the twofold dilution steps that make up the final C pneumoniae antibody titre may be due to cross reacting genus specific antibody. The results of TRIA correlated well with those of MIF. In 75% of cases, the TRIA result predicted a three titre range within which the actual MIF result would fall. CONCLUSIONS: MIF does not appear to be as species specific as claimed. TRIA is unlikely to be as specific but as it is completely objective, easier to perform, amenable to automation, and gives reproducible results, it is a rapid and useful method for comparing populations.  (+info)

Comparative in-vitro activity of moxifloxacin, minocycline and azithromycin against Chlamydia spp. (4/396)

The in-vitro activity of moxifloxacin, a new 8-methoxyquinolone, was compared with minocycline and azithromycin against 40 strains of Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia pneumoniae and Chlamydia psittaci. Both the MIC and the MBC of moxifloxacin ranged from 0.03 to 0.125 mg/L. MICs of minocycline ranged from 0.015 to 0.06 mg/L and MBCs between 0.03 and 0.25 mg/L. MICs of azithromycin ranged from 0.03 to 0.125 mg/L and the MBCs between 0.06 and 0.5 mg/L. MBC values of moxifloxacin were the same as MICs in 32 (80%) of 40 strains tested, whereas those of minocycline and azithromycin were two to four times higher than their MICs. These data confirm those previously obtained indicating that quinolones kill chlamydial strains at concentrations equivalent to their MICs.  (+info)

Genomic relatedness of Chlamydia isolates determined by amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis. (5/396)

The genomic relatedness of 19 Chlamydia pneumoniae isolates (17 from respiratory origin and 2 from atherosclerotic origin), 21 Chlamydia trachomatis isolates (all serovars from the human biovar, an isolate from the mouse biovar, and a porcine isolate), 6 Chlamydia psittaci isolates (5 avian isolates and 1 feline isolate), and 1 Chlamydia pecorum isolate was studied by analyzing genomic amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprints. The AFLP procedure was adapted from a previously developed method for characterization of clinical C. trachomatis isolates. The fingerprints of all C. pneumoniae isolates were nearly identical, clustering together at a Dice similarity of 92.6% (+/- 1.6% standard deviation). The fingerprints of the C. trachomatis isolates of human, mouse, and swine origin were clearly distinct from each other. The fingerprints of the isolates from the human biovar could be divided into at least 12 different types when the presence or absence of specific bands was taken into account. The C. psittaci fingerprints could be divided into a parakeet, a pigeon, and a feline type. The fingerprint of C. pecorum was clearly distinct from all others. Cluster analysis of selected isolates from all species revealed groups other than those based on sequence data from single genes (in particular, omp1 and rRNA genes) but was in agreement with available DNA-DNA hybridization data. In conclusion, cluster analysis of AFLP fingerprints of representatives of all species provided suggestions for a grouping of chlamydiae based on the analysis of the whole genome. Furthermore, genomic AFLP analysis showed that the genome of C. pneumoniae is highly conserved and that no differences exist between isolates of respiratory and atherosclerotic origins.  (+info)

Cytokine release by ovine macrophages following infection with Chlamydia psittaci. (6/396)

Chlamydia psittaci is an obligate intracellular pathogen that causes abortion in both sheep and humans. The disease in sheep (but not humans) is characterized by a long-term persistent phase that appears to be under the control of interferon-gamma. However, nothing is known about cytokine induction that precedes the persistent phase in sheep. Primary alveolar lavage cells recovered from normal adult sheep were used to study cytokine production in the first 72 h of infection with C. psittaci. These cells were phenotypically characteristic of macrophages, being adherent, phagocytic, CD14+ and staining positive for non-specific esterase. In vitro infection of the macrophages with C. psittaci resulted in the release of IL-1beta, IL-8 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) as measured by ovine-specific ELISAs. Heat-treated chlamydiae (1 h at 65 degrees C) did not induce the release of IL-1beta, but the release of IL-8 was similar to that induced by untreated organisms. The cells from different sheep varied most notably in their patterns of GM-CSF release in response to heat-treated and untreated organisms.  (+info)

Multiplex polymerase chain reaction for the simultaneous detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, and Chlamydia psittaci in respiratory samples. (7/396)

AIMS: To develop a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the simultaneous detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, and Chlamydia psittaci in respiratory samples. METHODS: Oligonucleotide primers for the amplification of the DNA of these three organisms were optimised for use in combination in the same reaction. PCR products were detected by hybridisation with pooled internal probes using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Those with positive signals were further differentiated using species specific probes. Quality of DNA extraction and PCR inhibition were controlled by amplification of a human mitochondrial gene. A panel of 53 respiratory samples with known results was evaluated blindly. This was followed by a retrospective study on sputa collected from 244 patients with suspected community acquired pneumonia. RESULTS: The multiplex assay had a lower sensitivity than PCR with individual primers by about one log. The resultant sensitivity was considered acceptable for diagnostic use. Of the panel of 53 samples, nine of 11 M pneumoniae, 11 of 11 C pneumoniae, six of seven C psittaci, and 24 of 24 negative samples were correctly identified. Of the 244 patients with pneumonia, seven (2.9%) had detectable M pneumoniae, six (2.5%) had C pneumoniae, and one (0.4%) had C psittaci. The case notes from 11 patients were studied. The PCR finding was of possible significance in at least eight of these patients. CONCLUSIONS: This multiplex PCR assay has the potential to be used as a diagnostic and epidemiological tool. Further prospective studies are needed to establish its clinical value.  (+info)

Significance of host cell kinesin in the development of Chlamydia psittaci. (8/396)

The influence of the microtubule-associated motor protein kinesin on Chlamydia psittaci inclusion development in epithelial and fibroblast cell lines was addressed. Kinesin was blocked early after chlamydial internalization (4 h postinfection [p.i.]) and before the initiation of active chlamydial multiplication (8 h p.i.). Chlamydia development was monitored by fluorescence and transmission electron microscopy at different times during the cycle. In both host cell lines, kinesin blockage restricted mitochondria from the chlamydial vacuole. The effects of kinesin blockage on the C. psittaci replication cycle included the presence of multiple inclusions up to late in the cycle, the presence of enlarged pleomorphic reticulate bodies, and a delayed reappearance of elementary bodies. The last effect seems to be greater when kinesin is blocked early after infection. Our results show that kinesin activity is required for optimal development of these microorganisms, most probably acting through the apposition of mitochondria to the C. psittaci inclusions.  (+info)

Chlamydia psittaci is an obligate intracellular bacterium that can cause significant disease among a broad range of hosts. In humans, this organism may cause psittacosis, a respiratory disease that can spread to involve multiple organs, and in rare untreated cases may be fatal. There are ten known genotypes based on sequencing the major outer-membrane protein gene, ompA, of C. psittaci. Each genotype has overlapping host preferences and virulence characteristics. Recent studies have compared C. psittaci among other members of the Chlamydiaceae family and showed that this species frequently switches hosts and has undergone multiple genomic rearrangements. In this study, we sequenced five genomes of C. psittaci strains representing four genotypes, A, B, D and E. Due to the known association of the type III secretion system (T3SS) and polymorphic outer-membrane proteins (Pmps) with host tropism and virulence potential, we performed a comparative analysis of these elements among these five strains ...
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 ...

Chlamydia comprises a group of obligate intracellular bacterial parasites responsible for a variety of diseases in humans and animals, including several zoonoses. Chlamydia trachomatis causes diseases such as trachoma, urogenital infection and lymphogranuloma venereum with severe morbidity. Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common cause of community-acquired respiratory tract infections. Chlamydia psittaci, causing zoonotic pneumonia in humans, is usually hosted by birds, while Chlamydia abortus, causing abortion and fetal death in mammals, including humans, is mainly hosted by goats and sheep. We used multi-locus sequence typing to asses the population structure of Chlamydia. In total, 132 Chlamydia isolates were analyzed, including 60 C. trachomatis, 18 C. pneumoniae, 16 C. abortus, 34 C. psittaci and one of each of C. pecorum, C. caviae, C. muridarum and C. felis.

Methods: The presence of a subclinical C. psittaci infection was investigated in 64 patients with psoriasis, including 12 patients with psoriatic arthritis. Two hundred and twenty-five healthy controls were also investigated. The presence of infection was assessed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells using several polymerase chain reaction protocols, targeting different regions of the bacterial genome. The DNA of other species (Chlamydophila pneumoniae and Chlamydia trachomatis) was also investigated ...
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 ...
A species of gram negative, obligately intracellular, spherical shaped bacteria belonging to the phylum Chlamydiae. This species survives outside of its host as an elementary body. C. psittaci is pathogenic, being the causative agent of endemic avian chlamydiosis and epizootic infection in mammals.

First-line analysis clearly identified Chlamydophila psittaci in the RNA sample from patient 2, but no sequences of obvious pathogenic origin were detected in samples from patient 1 (Figure). C. psittaci, an intracellular bacterium, can be transmitted by inhaling aerosolized secretions or feces from infected birds (3). Person-to-person transmission of this bacterium is rare (4,5). Ornithosis, a disease characterized by severe pneumonia and influenza-like symptoms, might develop in persons infected with this bacterium. Because of the rarity of the disease, standard diagnostic panels usually do not include C. psittaci. After 11 days of antimicrobial drug treatment, the condition of patient 2 improved, and the patient was transferred to a general hospital ward.. On April 29, a third police officer (patient 3) who had been sharing office space with patient 2, came to the hospital with symptoms of pneumonia. After antimicrobial drug treatment, his condition rapidly improved and the patient was ...

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 ...
Comparative morphological, histological, and biological studies suggest a close relationship between the meningopneumonitis virus of Francis and Magill and a virus recovered from thiamin-deficient pigeons. Both of these viruses are morphologically identical with typical psittacosis, and it seems probable that they are biologically modified strains of psittacosis. They both differ from typical psittacosis in that they are regularly more pathogenic for the pigeon after intracranial injection, and fail to produce hepatic necrosis after intraperitoneal injection in mice. A virus recently isolated from human cases of atypical pneumonia by Eaton, Beck, and Pearson may also be closely related to these two viruses.. A number of psittacosis viruses of pigeon origin showed a similarly increased pathogenicity for pigeons by the intracerebral route, as compared with psittacosis viruses of parrot origin. The viruses of parrot origin, however, commonly produced latent infection in pigeons even when clinical ...
Avian chlamydiosis (psittacosis) is caused by the intracellular bacterium Chlamydia (previously Chlamydophila) psittaci (Andersen and Franson 2007). Birds are natural hosts of C psittaci, and a wide range of avian species are susceptible to infection (Kaleta and Taday 2003). C psittaci causes potentially severe zoonotic disease, and captive psittacines have most often been implicated as the source of infection in humans (Vanrompay and others 1995).. While C psittaci infection is prevalent in wild columbiforms in Britain (Bracewell and Bevan 1986, Sharples and Baines 2009), its prevalence in wild passerines is unknown. Some studies in continental Europe have demonstrated a high prevalence of subclinical C psittaci infection in Paridae (tit species). For example, Holzinger-Umlauf and others (1997) detected Chlamydia sp. in 54 per cent of 399 free-living, apparently healthy Paridae in Germany, but Zweifel and others (2009) failed to detect C psittaci in any of the 527 free-living passerines ...
Avian chlamydiosis, called psittacosis when it occurs in humans, is a zoonotic disease caused by the obligate intracellular gram-negative bacterial pathogen called C. psittaci, which is distinct antigenically and genetically from other Chlamydia species.3 Because several diseases affecting humans can be caused by other species of Chlamydia, the disease resulting from the infection of humans with C. psittaci frequently is referred to as psittacosis rather than chlamydia.. Psittacosis has a worldwide distribution and can occur sporadically or in epidemic fashion at any time of the year.3 In the U.S., from 2003 through 2014, 112 psittacosis cases were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the Nationally Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System.2 This number is likely an underestimate of the actual number of cases because psittacosis is difficult to diagnose. The disease is also known as parrot disease, parrot fever, and ornithosis because most psittacosis cases ...

Avian chlamydiosis is a zoonotic disease of birds caused by the intracellular bacterium Chlamydophila psittaci. This disease is called psittacosis in humans. It may be called either avian chlamydiosis or psittacosis in psittacine birds; the term avian chlamydiosis is generally used in other avian species. Infections are particularly common among psittacine birds and pigeons, but most or all species of birds are probably susceptible. Some birds carry this organism asymptomatically. Others become mildly to severely ill, either immediately or after they have been stressed. Significant economic losses may be seen in turkeys and ducks, and high mortality can occur in clinically affected psittacines. Humans are readily infected by C. psittaci. In 1929, exposure to imported pet psittacines caused a pandemic in the U.S. and Europe. Since that time, improved screening and control of avian infections have decreased the incidence of human disease. However, C. psittaci is difficult to eliminate entirely; sporadic
On what grounds can assume that the birds develop psittacosis, and that it is dangerous in epidemiological terms for the people around them?. Chlamydia infection can occur in different ways, sometimes completely asymptomatic.Parrots in the acute phase of the disease state of depression, to external stimuli they have no reaction.There are signs of fatigue - birds sitting sleepy, feathers ruffled.Breathing becomes noisy from nasal mucous exudate begins to stand out, and litter gets green.Symptoms persist for up to eight days.If there is lightning for psittacosis, death occurs within a few hours.. poultry have psittacosis can occur without obvious clinical manifestations.It is sometimes observed conjunctivitis and decreased fertility.Other symptoms are absent.In rare cases, it develops the same clinical picture psittacosis that patients parrots.It should be noted that juveniles transferred disease harder, because they have developed the typical respiratory, digestive and nervous disorders that lead ...
Psittacosis is an infection caused by the obligatory intracellular bacterium Chlamydia psittaci. The term psittacosis is derived from the Greek word for parrot, psittakos, and was first used by Morange in 1892.
Also known as parrot fever, Psittacosis is an infectious disease triggered by Chlamydia psittaci, a small bacterium measuring 0.5 micrometers. It is transmitted to humans from parrots and other birds by inhalation or ingestion of tiny microdroplets of contaminated fluid. Psittacosis affects the lungs and bronchi, causing pneumonia. After a 5-to-14-day incubation period, the disease breaks out with the first symptoms, which include high fever, chills, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, arthralgias, difficulty in breathing, etc. It can be fatal if not treated. Treatment consists of doses of antibiotics, such as tetracycline, doxycycline, and penicillin. ...
It looks like flu, affects pigeons and chickens in addition to parrots and is quite unknown: the parrot disease or psittacosis. People too can get flu or pneumonia if they inhale dust particles infected with the bacterium Chlamydia psittaci that causes psittacosis, for example when cleaning a cage.

BACKGROUND: Health authorities in Victoria, Australia were notified of three men from a rural town with atypical pneumonia, admitted to hospital over 8 days. Initial serological testing suggested Chlamydia psittaci as the cause. We did a case-control
Bacterial pathogens subvert host cells by manipulating cellular pathways for survival and replication; in turn, host cells respond to invading pathogens through cascading changes in gene expression. Deciphering this complex temporal and spatial interplay is crucial for improved diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as understanding fundamental biology. C. trachomatis has a profound effect on human mucosal epithelial cells, actively altering them to secure an intracellular niche. We developed the dual RNA-Seq approach to simultaneously capture prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression profiles of bacteria-infected cells, using C. trachomatis-infected cells as proof of principle. We have significantly extended these results by performing dual RNA-Seq and time-matched miRNA-Seq to characterize the early infected host transcriptomes at 0.5, 1.5, 3, 6, and 12 hours post-infection in response to both C. trachomatis and C. psittaci infections. This dataset also includes time matched controls of ...
People who have birds as pets, poultry workers and anyone working in aviaries or pet shops, are most at risk of catching psittacosis.
Less common organisms include Legionella, Nocardia, Actinobacillus, Rickettsia, Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme borreliosis), Listeria, Leptospira, Chlamydophila psittaci, and Treponema pallidum (syphilis)... more
Background and purpose: Chlamydia spp. are important pathogens of humans and animals that cause a wide range of acute and chronic infections. A persistence model has been developed in which Chlamydia spp. do not complete their developmental cycle, have significantly reduced infectivity for new host cells, and exhibit abnormal inclusion and reticulate body morphology. This study was performed to compare the interferon-γ (IFN-γ) induction and iron-limitation models of persistence for Chlamydia spp. to investigate the common and unique transcriptional pathways involved. Methods: A quantitative real time-polymerase chain reaction approach was used to compare the IFN-γ induction and iron-limitation models of Chlamydia pneumoniae persistence at the transcriptional level by analyzing selected genes in each of 5 distinct, functionally relevant subcategories. Results: The models showed minimal evidence of a general transcriptional stress response in persistence, with only 1 of the 7 genes analyzed in the IFN

Studies were carried out to evaluate the proposed role of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (INDO) induction in the antimicrobial and antiproliferative effects of gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) in human fibroblasts. The INDO cDNA coding region was cloned in the pMEP4 expression vector, containing the metallothionein (MTII) promoter in the sense (+ve) or the antisense (-ve) orientation. Human fibroblasts (GM637) stably transfected with the sense construct expressed INDO activity after treatment with CdCl2 or ZnSO4, but cells transfected with the antisense construct did not. The growth of Chlamydia psittaci was strongly inhibited in INDO +ve cells but not in INDO -ve cells after treatment with Cd2+ or Zn2+. The inhibition correlated with the level of INDO activity induced and could be reversed by the addition of excess tryptophan to the medium. The growth of Toxoplasma gondii was also strongly inhibited in INDO +ve cells but not in INDO -ve cells after treatment with Cd2+. Expression of Cd(2+)-induced ...

The diagnosis of inclusion conjunctivitis cannot be made definitively without laboratory testing, but the signs of inclusion conjunctivitis can be seen by the eye care provider, even if a patient is not symptomatic. Follicles can seen on the inside inferior eyelids and occasionally under the superior eyelid of the patient with adult inclusion conjunctivitis, and if treatment has been delayed, scarring of the interior of the eyelids may be present as well as kerititis, an inflammation of the cornea, and neovascularization, or new blood vessel formation of the cornea. Upon questioning the individual may report a history of a genitourinary infection. The laboratory testing for inclusion conjunctivitis begins with swabbing a sample from the inside of the eyelids to test for the presence of the characteristic inclusion bodies made only by chlamydia. The Giemsa stain is used often to diagnose neonatal inclusion conjunctivitis. This technique has a high rate of false positives for the adult with ...
Chlamydia psittaci (Cp) is a respiratory pathogen capable of inducing acute pulmonary zoonotic disease (psittacosis) or persistent infection. To elucidate the pathogenesis of this infection, a translational large animal model was recently introduced by our group. This study aims at quantifying and differentiating pulmonary dysfunction and acid-base imbalances induced by Cp. Forty-two calves were grouped in (i) animals inoculated with Cp (n = 21) and (ii) controls sham-inoculated with uninfected cell culture (n = 21). For pulmonary function testing, impulse oscillometry, capnography, and FRC (functional residual capacity) measurement were applied to spontaneously breathing animals. Variables of acid-base status were assessed in venous blood using both (i) traditional Henderson-Hasselbalch and (ii) strong ion approach. Both obstructive and restrictive pulmonary disorders were induced in calves experimentally inoculated with Cp. Although disorders in respiratory mechanics lasted for 8-11 days, the pattern
Psittacosis, a bacterial infection typically acquired from birds such as parrots, has been confirmed as the cause of serious respiratory illnesses among three of five workers at an animal health center in Hong Kong, the territorys Centre for Health Protection (CHP) announced yesterday. The three patients, aged 55, 62, and 27, tested positive for Chlamydophila psittaci by polymerase chain reaction, the CHP said. Two of the three remain hospitalized, but one, the 27-year-old, was released Nov 22. The three are among five men working at Hong Kongs New Territories North Animal Management Centre (NTNAMC) who were hospitalized with respiratory illnesses. They are all employees of Hong Kongs Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD). The CHP said another eight AFCD employees at the NTNAMC, among 59 who were contacted, have respiratory symptoms and will be tested for psittacosis. The cases had prompted testing for the novel coronavirus that recently infected six men from Saudi Arabia ...
Psittacosis is an infectious disease in humans that has mild, non-specific flu-like symptoms. Psittacosis refers to any infection or disease caused by Chlamydia psittaci, one of several microorganisms in the genus Chlamydia. This disease can be transmitted from infected birds to humans. Parrot disease, ornithosis, and chlamydiosis are other names for psittacosis ...
Once infected, birds may remain infected for life, and shed bacteria after treatment if they are stressed from another illness or shipping. If birds are kept as pets, clean the cage often so that feces does not accumulate, dry up, and become airborne. Birds should be purchased from a reliable source that adheres to federal recommendations for psittacosis control. Current laws require that members of the parrot family imported from foreign countries be kept in a bird quarantine station before they can be sold. During the quarantine, they are given food containing tetracycline to reduce the risk of infection, but the duration of treatment is generally shorter than the 45 days necessary to completely treat the bird. Therefore, federal health authorities have recently recommended that breeders and importers ensure that all domestic nestlings and imported birds receive the special tetracycline feed for 45 continuous days in order to prevent the spread of psittacosis from birds to humans. Last ...
Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia psittaci, and Chlamydia pneumoniae are among the most prevalent microbial pathogens in humans worldwide. C trachomatis is responsible for a variety of sexually transmitted disease (STD) syndromes in both sexes. In addition, certain serotypes of C trachomatis are responsible for trachoma, the most common infectious cause of blindness in humans. C psittaci is a zoonotic pathogen associated with atypical pneumonia.
In the current study, we investigated the requirements of MHC I presentation during Chlamydia infection using C57BL/6 mice, the mouse DC line JAWS II, and the nonavian C. psittaci (DC15) as an infection model system. The most intriguing finding of our work is that autophagy constitutes a critical pathway in MHC I processing of chlamydial Ags in infected DCs.. Our data demonstrate that the disease in C. psittaci-infected C57BL/6 mice is comparable to what was recently described for infected cattle (37), the natural host of C. psittaci strain DC15. In particular, the onset of the most pronounced clinical signs due to bronchopneumonia, the pathological features, and the course of disease are remarkably similar. Chlamydia-infected DCs show morphological, as well as functional, maturation, which is characterized by elevated expression of distinct activation/maturation markers and secretion of chemokines/cytokines known to be associated with optimal Ag presentation and clearance of bacterial ...
Feline chlamydial conjunctivitis, or chlamydophila (previously known as feline pneumonitis) is an infection caused by a bacterial organism called Chlamydophila felis (previously known as Chlamydia psittaci [feline strain]). Although the term pneumonitis implies inflammation of the lungs, the most common symptoms of C. felis infection involve the eyes or the upper respiratory tract (nose or throat), and only when infection is not treated does it spread to the lungs.. ...
Chlamydial development is punctuated by changes in protein-protein interactions on elementary body (EB) and reticulate body (RB) surfaces. Reduction of disulfide cross-links in the chlamydial outer membrane complex (COMC) concomitant with attachment and entry of the EB is rapidly followed by transition to the fragile RB, which is specialized for acquisition of nutrients during chlamydial growth and differentiation. This chapter reviews knowledge about the progression starting with the structure of the EB envelope in the extracellular environment and the way in which this surface interacts with, and is altered during, the process of chlamydial attachment, entry, development, and exit from host cells. The presence of gram-negative double membranes was confirmed by early transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies of RBs and EBs, but challenges in purification and fractionation of RB membranes shifted emphasis toward EB membranes in subsequent studies. Regularly spaced hexagonal lattices were observed

Because the clinical symptoms of chlamydiosis are similar to those of other feline upper respiratory infections, it is important to accurately identify the bacteria before successful treatment can be administered. Traditionally culture was used, but it is very difficult to differentiate by culture C. felis from other bacteria also found in eye discharge. Immunofluorescent staining has also been used to identify C. felis, but this techniques sensitivity is also not high. However, molecular detection by PCR is a rapid, sensitive and specific method to detect this bacterium. ...
