This revealed that Lactobacillus Crispatus, another bacteria living inside the vaginal area, was more combative than Lactobacillus Iners in preventing chlamydial
The reason for the asymptomatic nature of chlamydial
infection is currently unknown.my laboratory made the intriguing observation that exposure of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (pmns), a major subset of innate immune cells and cause of inflammation and tissue damage, to c.
Chlamydiaceae bacteria infect many vertebrate hosts, and previous reports based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays and serologic assays that are prone to cross-reaction among chlamydial
organisms have been used to describe the prevalence of either DNA fragments or antibodies to Chlamydia species in wild raptorial populations.
Sexually transmitted Chlamydia trachomatis infection also has notorious effects on reproduction, often asymptomatic and recurrent; thus, chlamydial
infection diseases remain important public health concern over its prevention and control.
Chlamydia, an obligated intracellular bacterium, can cause various human diseases by the two chlamydial
species, Chlamydia trachomatis and Chlamydia pneumoniae.
In females, up to 40% of chlamydial
cervicitis may ascend to the endometrium and is responsible for the etiology of endometritis and salpingitis .
The presence of Gram-Negative Intracellular Diplococci (GNID) on urethral smear is indicative of gonorrhoea infection, which is frequently accompanied by chlamydial
The latest award continues funding of the center, with individual projects on cancer, Lyme disease, pneumonic plague and chlamydial
infectious cycle is highly dependent on host cell energy homeostasis and metabolism, since chlamydial
species lack crucial enzymes for ATP biosynthesis and are defective in biosynthesis of lipids and many other organic substances .
Both animal and human studies have established a vital role for T cell-mediated immunity, predominantly that of IFN-[gamma]-producing [CD4.sup.+] T cells, and the complementary role of humoral immunity in host resistance to chlamydial
infection [4, 5].
There were 15,000 diagnoses of chlamydial
infection reported to HPS, a decrease of eight per cent on the 2014 figure and the lowest annual total over the last 10 years.
infections are usually asymptomatic, and screening is necessary to identify most infections.
