experimental infection of the chimpanzee urethra and pharynx with chlamydia isolate of chlamydia trachomatis obtained from a man with nongonococcal urethritis was used to produce experimental urethral and pharyngeal infections in chimpanzees. after urethral inoculation of 8 x 10(1) inclusion-forming units (ifu), infections were established in three of three animals; urethral discharges developed in two. the infections persisted for five to nine weeks. larger inocular (7 x 10(2) and 1 x 10(5) ifu) produced pharyngeal infections in two animals. the third animal's phary ...1978741332
treatment of chlamydia-positive and chlamydia-negative nonspecific and postgonococcal urethritis.chlamydial and non-chlamydial nonspecific or postgonococcal urethritis in 132 men was treated with different regimens of chlortetracycline and doxycycline. chlortetracycline 250 mg four times daily for 12.5-18.5 days given to 70 men resulted in a clinical cure of urethritis in 80% of cases (56/70). there was no difference in the cure rate between chlamydia-positive (40) and chlamydia-negative (30) cases. in no instance was the treatment failure, i.e., re-appearance of urethritis, associated with ...1978742827

etiologies of postgonococcal urethritis in homosexual and heterosexual men: roles of chlamydia trachomatis and ureaplasma urealyticum.before treatment for urethral gonorrhea, chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from 18% and ureaplasma urealyticum from 37% of 121 men. c. trachomatis was recovered from none of 18 homosexual men who had gonorrhea and from 22 of 95 heterosexual men who had gonorrhea (p less than 0.05). after treatment with a penicillin, postgonococcal urethritis occurred significantly more often in heterosexual than in homosexual men (p less than 0.002). postgonococcal urethritis developed in all men from whom c. t ...1978741335
examination of men with nongonococcal urethritis and their sexual partners for chlamydia trachomatis and ureaplasma urealyticum.chlamydia trachomatis was recovered from 39 (52%) of 75 men who had nongonococcal urethritis and from 28 (37%) of their sexual partners. of the partners of men with chlamydia-positive nongonococcal urethritis, 64% excreted chlamydia, compared with 8% of the partners of men with chlamydia-negative nongonococcal urethritis. in contrast, an apparently sexual mode of transmission was not observed with ureaplasma urealyticum. rates of recovery of u. urealyticum from men with nongonococcal urethritis ...1978725708

ophthalmia neonatorum due to chlamydia trachomatis: a family problem?the most frequently seen type of infectious ophthalmia neonatorum, inclusion conjunctivitis, is caused by the organism chlamydia trachomatis. this agent is known to be transmitted sexually. until recently, the infections produced by c trachomatis were though to be relatively benign. recent evidence, however, suggests that the organism may produce urethritis and epididymitis in the male; cervicitis, cervical erosions, salpingitis, and puerperal infections in the female; and prematurity and pneumo ...1979759548
chlamydiae, cervicitis, and abnormal papanicolaou smears.cervical abnormalities accompanied by papanicolaou class ii or class iii cytologic results are commonly encountered in gynecologic office practice. chlamydiae are a common cause of genital tract infection, with or without manifest symptoms or signs. an immunofluorescence method was used to determine the presence of antichlamydial antibodies in cervical secretions. eleven of 15 patients in whom such antibodies were found (73.3%) had papanicolaou class ii or class iii smears, in contrast to only 3 ...1979760016
