This is the first study to investigate vertical transmission of Chlamydia trachomatis in Chongqing China. For this study, 300 cervical swab samples from pregnant women and 305 nasopharygeal swab samples from their babies (605 specimens) were collected for nest polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) of the ompl gene, which encodes the major outer membrane protein (MOMP) and typed C. trachomatis using Cleavase fragment-length polymorphism (CFLP) labeled with digoxin. From these samples, 11% (33/300) of…

Probability of vertical transmission of Chlamydia trachomatis estimated from national registry data
TLDR
A nationwide study of the C. trachomatis vertical transmission in children identified from two national health registries in 1996–2011 found that mother-to-child transmission may occur in 10%–70% of deliveries, which is significantly lower than reported earlier.
Prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections among pregnant women and eye colonization of their neonates at birth time, Shiraz, Southern Iran
TLDR
In the areas with a high prevalence of chlamydial or gonococcal infections, and in the absence of screening and treatment of the pregnant women, ocular prophylaxis with antibiotics is suggested as a part of routine neonatal care program for the prevention of chamydial and Gonococcal ophthalmia.
The use of direct immunofluorescence and nested polymerase chain reaction in diagnosing perinatal infections of Chlamydia trachomatis.
TLDR
The frequency of infection caused by C. trachomatis in newborn infants is estimated using swabs taken from the eyes and throats of children born at the Wroclaw Medical University Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics (Poland).
Chlamydia trachomatis Infections in Neonates
TLDR
Genital C. trachomatis infections (serotype D-K) are especially common among sexually active young people, who represent as many as 75% of all reported infections across Europe (ECDC, 2011).
Distribution and perinatal transmission of bacterial vaginal infections in pregnant women without vaginal symptoms
Abstract Background: We evaluated the distribution and vertical transmission of bacterial vaginal infections in asymptomatic pregnant women. Methods: We performed multiplex PCR on secretions
Influence of different delivery modes on the clinical characteristics of Chlamydia trachomatis pneumonia
TLDR
The Chlamydia trachomatis titers and peripheral blood leukocyte counts of the vaginal delivery group were higher than those of the cesarean delivery group and the age of onset, liver enzymes, pulmonary inflammation, and pneumonia absorption were not different between groups.
Maternal and Infant Chlamydia trachomatis Infections
TLDR
The most effective approach to preventing perinatal chlamydial infection is screening and treatment of pregnant women, greatly facilitated by the use of nucleic acid amplification tests for diagnosis and the availability of effective single-dose antibiotic treatment.
Interventions for treating genital Chlamydia trachomatis infection in pregnancy.
TLDR
To establish the most efficacious and best-tolerated therapy for treatment of genital chlamydial infection in preventing maternal infection and adverse neonatal outcomes, 15 studies undertaken in North America from 1982 to 2001 are reviewed.
Progress in genotyping of Chlamydia trachomatis
TLDR
Different genotyping techniques were applied on different occasions according to their characteristics, especially in epidemiological studies worldwide, which pushed the study of Chlamydia trachomatis forward greatly.

Genotyping of Chlamydia trachomatis from clinical specimens in Taiwan.
TLDR
There was a geographical difference in the prevalence of genotype H between northern and southern Taiwan, and sequence mutation analysis by blast searching against GenBank reference sequences identified 12 genetic variants from a total of 102 omp1 gene sequences.
High-Resolution Genotyping of Chlamydia trachomatis from Recurrent Urogenital Infections
ABSTRACT A method for Chlamydia trachomatis restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis and complete sequencing ofomp1 was developed for use on samples collected at home, and results
Restriction endonuclease patterns of the omp1 gene of reference Chlamydia trachomatis strains and characterization of isolates from Cameroonian students.
Eighteen reference strains of Chlamydia trachomatis were differentiated by omp1 PCR- and nested PCR-based RFLP analysis, using two restriction digestions, one with AluI and the other with the three
Serotypes of Chlamydia trachomatis and risk for development of cervical squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
The results strengthen the evidence that there is a link between past C trachomatis infection and cervical SCC, and suggest increasing numbers of exposures to different C trACHomatis serotypes also increases risk.

TLDR
This chapter deals with genital chlamydial infections in pregnancy and postpartum, and the screening of pregnant women for C. trachomatis and the treatment of infected mothers and their offspring.
Comparison of Three Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests for Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in Urine Specimens
TLDR
It is found that the Abbott LCx, ProbeTec, and AC2 NAATs are highly sensitive and specific methods for the detection of C. trachomatis in urine specimens and can be recommended for noninvasive screening of the sexually transmitted disease.
Urogenital Chlamydia trachomatis serovars in men and women with a symptomatic or asymptomatic infection: an association with clinical manifestations?
TLDR
To determine whether certain Chlamydia trachomatis serovars are preferentially associated with a symptomatic or an asymptomatically infected course of infection, C. trachmatisSerovars were determined using PCR-based genotyping, i.e., restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the nested-PCR-amplified omp1 gene.
Combination of PCR Targeting the VD2 of omp1 and Reverse Line Blot Analysis for Typing of Urogenital Chlamydia trachomatis Serovars in Cervical Scrape Specimens
TLDR
The nested VD2 PCR-RLB developed is a simple, fast, and specific method for the identification of individual urogenital C. trachomatis serovars previously detected by using plasmid PCR and is an appropriate method for studying multiple C. TRACHomatis infections and for use in large epidemiological studies.
Molecular typing methods for Neisseria meningitidis.
TLDR
This review examines strain characterisation by molecular techniques and non-culture-based subtyping of meningococci in clinical specimens and examines the epidemiological questions that they answer and also their limitations.
