Therapeutic approaches to Chlamydia infections
TLDR

Historical Review and Cost-Effectiveness Assessment of the Programs to Eliminate Onchocerciasis and Trachoma in Mexico

TLDR
The bacterial affinities of these agents lend plausibility to the idea that allergic reactions similar to those induced by bacteria may play an important role in pathogenesis, particularly in subacute or chronic infections.
Natural Products for the Treatment of Trachoma and Chlamydia trachomatis
TLDR
The existing literature on the application of natural compounds for controlling trachoma and inhibiting chlamydial bacteria is summarized and the potential for the development of new treatment modalities is explored.
A national survey integrating clinical, laboratory, and WASH data to determine the typology of trachoma in Nauru
TLDR
TF, nucleic acid, and age-specific antibody prevalence collectively indicate that high levels of C. trachomatis transmission among children present a high risk of ocular damage due to trachoma.
The History of Trachoma and Current Prevalence (Spotlight on Iran): A Review Article
TLDR
Elimination of trachoma in Iran is achievable in the near future despite the decline in active disease, which is mainly attributed to improvement of socio-economic situation and personal and environmental hygiene rather than targeted interventions for epidemic control.
Evaluating Precision of a Trachomatous Trichiasis (TT) Super Survey with Modulating Sample Sizes in Tanzania.
TLDR
Preliminary findings from two opportunities in Tanzania show variability in the appropriateness in conducting a district-level population-based prevalence survey for trachoma, and stress the importance of determining what is meant by homogeneity in terms of TT before combining multiple districts into a single EU.
Chlamydia trachomatis serovars of endemic trachoma had been predominantly existed in Japan
TLDR
The serovars that were identified from Japanese infants and pregnant women were similar to those reported in other studies from non-trachoma-endemic areas and were thought to be mainly urogenital tract-origin.
Development of Azithromycin Resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae in the Setting of Trachoma Mass Drug Administration: A Systematic Review
TLDR
It is shown that mass drug administration for trachoma can lead to a transient rise in S pneumoniae azithromycin resistance with a possible reduction in overall S pneumoniaE prevalence.
