Primary cultures of human endometrial and ectocervical epithelial cells were examined as a new model system to study genital infection by Chlamydia trachomatis. Initial studies demonstrated that these cells were indeed susceptible to chlamydial infection. Inocula, adjusted to produce inclusions in 50 to 80% of equivalent numbers of standard McCoy cells, resulted in infection rates of approximately 15 to 30% for the columnar cells of the endometrium and 5 to 10% for the squamous cells of the… CONTINUE READING
