Scientists Identify Immune Cascade that Fuels Complications, Tissue Damage in Chlamydia Infections

Research in mice pinpoints immune mechanism behind tissue damage and complications of chlamydia infection, the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States.

Separate immune mechanisms drive bacterial clearance versus immune-mediated tissue damage and subsequent disease.

Therapies are needed to avert irreversible reproductive organ damage that can arise as a result of silent infections that go untreated.
