    Background. The human immune response to a Chlamydia trachomatis serovar D lysate was investigated in patients with urogenital C. trachomatis infection, to identify novel T cell targets. Methods. A C. trachomatis lysate was fractionated on the basis of molecular mass, and each fraction was used...

    In this report, we show that the Chlamydia trachomatis-specific CD8+ T cell antigen class I accessible protein-1 (Cap1) is expressed during the early stages of the C. trachomatis developmental cycle. We provide additional evidence suggesting that Cap1 may be important in early immune recognition...

    Background: Chlamydia trachomatis is globally the predominant infectious cause of blindness and one of the most common bacterial causes of sexually transmitted infection. Infections of the conjunctiva cause the blinding disease trachoma, an immuno-pathological disease that is characterised by...

    To localize and characterize the GTP-binding protein encoded by the chlamydial ORF CT703 in the Chlamydia trachomatis-infected cells, the gene coding for CT703 in the Chlamydia trachomatis serovar L2 genome was cloned into the prokaryotic expression vector pGEX and expressed as GST fusion...

    Background: The WHO seeks to control trachoma as a public health problem in endemic areas. Achham District in western Nepal was found to have TF (trachoma follicular) above 20% in a 2006 government survey, triggering 3 annual mass drug administrations finishing in 2010. Here we assess the level...
