Chlamydiales are important intracellular bacterial pathogens, causing a wide variety of diseases in vertebrates, including humans. Besides the well-known species in the family Chlamydiaceae, new chlamydial organisms have recently been discovered, forming three new families: Parachlamydiaceae, Simkaniaceae and Waddliaceae. Parachlamydia acanthamoebae and Simkania negevensis are currently investigated as emerging human respiratory pathogens. Additional chlamydial lineages have been discovered by… CONTINUE READING

By using a pan - chlamydia 16S rDNA PCR , we have searched for the presence of chlamydiae in 228 clinical samples that all previously had been shown to be PCR - negative for Chlamydophila pneumoniae : 170 respiratory samples , 45 atheromatic plaques and 13 peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples .
