seroprevalence of chlamydia pneumoniae in taiwan.chlamydia pneumoniae (twar) is a relatively newly discovered respiratory tract pathogen which was first isolated in taiwan. in order to describe the seroepidemiology of c. pneumoniae in taiwan, we evaluated 1,085 stored serum samples: 904 from patients, 97 from umbilical cord blood samples, and 84 from medical personnel at the veterans general hospital-kaohsiung, between january 1 and april 30, 1991. antibodies were determined by the use of a microimmunofluorescence test using elementary bodies ...19938284640

seroprevalence of chlamydia pneumoniae infection in survey the seroprevalence of chlamydia pneumoniae (c. pneumoniae) infection in healthy subjects in taiwan.200414667797
etiology of community acquired pneumonia among adult patients requiring hospitalization in taiwan.there has not been a comprehensive multi-center study investigating the microbial profile of community acquired pneumonia (cap) in taiwan.200516085210
chlamydia pneumoniae respiratory infections in understand the epidemiology of chlamydia pneumoniae acute infections in taiwan, we collected 116 paired and 244 single sera from patients suspected of c. pneumoniae infection and conducted microimmunofluorescence test. eighty-three patients (83/360, 23%) met the diagnostic criteria of current c. pneumoniae infection. the c. pneumoniae infections were significantly higher in men than in women (p< or =0.0001) and were most frequent in the group of 40-49 year-olds, and the people older than 70 y ...200717579263
the association between chlamydia pneumoniae and metabolic syndrome in taiwanese adults.both chlamydia pneumoniae (cp) seropositivity and metabolic syndrome (mes) have been identified as risk factors for atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (cvd), but the association between cp seropositivity and mes has not been extensively studied.200920016424
clinical characteristics of q fever and etiology of community-acquired pneumonia in a tropical region of southern taiwan: a prospective observational study.the clinical characteristics of q fever are poorly identified in the tropics. fever with pneumonia or hepatitis are the dominant presentations of acute q fever, which exhibits geographic variability. in southern taiwan, which is located in a tropical region, the role of q fever in community-acquired pneumonia (cap) has never been investigated.201425033402
impact of infectious etiology on the outcome of taiwanese patients hospitalized with community acquired pneumonia.this study aimed to assess the relationships between infectious etiology, empiric treatment, and outcomes in taiwanese patients with community acquired pneumonia (cap).201323416657
a prospective etiologic study of community-acquired pneumonia in taiwan.the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia (cap) is complicated by the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance and the tendency to rely on empirical therapy. this study investigated the etiologic agents of adult cap in taiwan and the susceptibility of streptococcus pneumoniae isolates from these patients.200516385374
relation of chlamydia pneumoniae infection in taiwan to angiographically demonstrated coronary artery disease and to the presence of acute myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris.reports of the association of chlamydia pneumoniae (c. pneumoniae) infection with coronary artery disease (cad) are scarce in the oriental population. we therefore conducted a case-control study to explore this issue in taiwan. there were 242 consecutive subjects (166 men and 76 women) who underwent cardiac catheterization at the national taiwan university hospital cardiac catheterization laboratory. patients with cad (n = 156) had > or = 1 coronary artery lesion of > 50% diameter stenosis on an ...200111703989
chlamydia pneumoniae infection in community-acquired pneumonia in taiwan.chlamydia pneumoniae is a common cause of pneumonia worldwide. this study examined the role of c. pneumoniae in 229 patients with community-acquired pneumonia. the ages of the patients ranged from 2 to 95 years. sera were assayed for igm and igg antibodies with microimmunofluorescence (mif). an igm titer equal to or greater than 1:20 and igg titer equal to or greater than 1:64 were considered positive. the prevalence of positive igg among all of the patients was 75.1% (172/229). the seroprevalen ...200010806962
