Disease outcome subsequent to primary and secondary urogenital infection with murine or human biovars of Chlamydia trachomatis

Academic Article


  • A susceptible strain of mice infected intravaginally with the mouse pneumonitis biovar of Chlamydia trachomatis became infertile and sustained high rates of hydrosalpinx formation regardless of prior infection with a human serovar. Conversely, susceptible mice infected with human serovars remained fertile unless challenged with a homologous human serovar.
