To determine the prevalence of antibody to Chlamydia heat-shock protein 60 (C-hsp60) in women with tubal infertility, an ELISA using purified recombinant C-hsp60 was developed. Antibody to C. trachomatis was present in 32 (72.7%) of 44 women with tubal infertility compared with 9 (32.1%) of 28 with other causes of infertility and 55 (28.9%) of 190 pregnant women (P < .001). Among the seropositive women, antibody to C-hsp60 was present in 26 (81.3%) of 32 women with tubal infertility compared… CONTINUE READING
