Characterization of lymphocyte response in the female genital tract during ascending Chlamydial genital infection in the guinea pig model.

Abstract

It is well known that pathology caused by chlamydial infection is associated closely with the host response to the organism and that both innate and adaptive host responses contribute to tissue damage. While it is likely that the organism itself initiates the acute inflammatory response by eliciting cytokine and chemokine production from the host cell, the… (More)
