Chlamydia Trachomatis Immunology and Vaccinology Study

2014-07-23 21:08:41 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective is to prospectively follow 200 women with or at risk of cervicitis to determine the chlamydia-specific cellular responses that correlate with protection against incident infection. The hypothesis is that a positive IFN-y response by peripheral CD4+ T cells responding to stimulation with HSP60 will be significantly associated with protection from incident C. trachomatis infection.
