Lack of an effect of antibiotic treatment on prolonged detection of chlamydial DNA in murine genital tract infection.


PMID 17502410

Abstract

Mice treated with antibiotics early or late after active infection had resolved were examined for chlamydial DNA in endocervical swabs. The early eradication of infection limited oviduct pathology, despite the continued detection of chlamydial DNA by nested PCR. Late antibiotic treatment had no effect on the ability to detect DNA or oviduct pathology.
