The obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cp) is responsible for a range of human diseases, including acute respiratory infection. Although experimental intratracheal infection with Cp results in a massive recruitment of neutrophil granulocytes (polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN)), the role of these cells in the defense against Cp is unclear. In this study the interactions of PMN with Cp were investigated. In vitro coincubation experiments showed that human… CONTINUE READING
