Recurrent genitourinary chlamydial
infections in sexually active female adolescents.
cervicitis is characterized by erythema, edema and friability of the cervix, purulent yellow or green endocervical discharge, and dyspareunia.
In a randomized controlled trial of an STD prevention program designed specifically for this group, intervention participants had lower risks than controls of acquiring chlamydia and of having a recurrent chlamydial
infection over a 12-month follow-up period (risk ratios, 0.
At enrolment and each follow-up visit, endocervical swabs were collected for identification of chlamydial
, gonococcal and trichomonal infections.
In other cases, confirmed cases of chlamydial
infection may not be reported even though chlamydial
infection is a notifiable disease.
infection is one of the main causes of cervicitis and nongonnococcal urethritis, and is a common cause of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) (5, 6).
Some areas studied include a mathematical-model approach to chlamydial
infection in Japan, time-inhomogeneous Markov chains and ergodicity arising from nonlinear dynamic systems and optimization, solutions to open problems in n-dimensional fluid dynamics, exact penalty functions for constrained optimization problems, and the development of Lyapunov's direct method in the application to new types of problems of hydrodynamic stability theory.
ReadyCells also allow year-round cell culture availability with minimal on-hand inventory, and are available for respiratory and herpes virus cultures, enterovirus culture, and chlamydial

Conjunctivitis in infants less than four weeks old may be caused by chlamydial
or gonococcal infection.
Fine-needle aspiration of the lymph node demonstrated granulomatous inflammation compatible with LGV; the diagnosis was further confirmed by the high titers demonstrated by chlamydial
serology, as well as the patient's response to doxycycline.
It is a chlamydial
infection of birds which can cause pneumonia in humans.
