NIH/S mice were infected intranasally with Chlamydia pneumoniae isolate Kajaani 6 and rechallenged after either 28 or 70 days. A partial resistance to reinfection, indicated by a reduced recovery of live organisms, was noted at both time points of rechallenge: positive isolations from lung homogenates and/or bronchoalveolar lavage fluids were observed in fewer mice and the yields of isolated chlamydiae remained smaller, as compared to primary infection. However, a previous infection did not… CONTINUE READING
