Chlamydial conjunctivitis, also known as adult inclusion conjunctivitis, is caused by the bacterial microorganism Chlamydia trachomatis and typically affects young, sexually active adults with genital chlamydial infection.
The higher screening uptake rate should, within less than 5 years, cut the prevalence of chlamydial infection in these girls and women from the current levels of 3% to nearly 1%, and in the same time frame it should also drop infection rates among men from just over 2% to below 1%, said Dr.
The explanation for the observed higher failure rate with azithromycin compared with doxycycline in treating chlamydial NGU is probably twofold: homotypic resistance of the organism to a single dose of a bacteriostatic antibiotic, coupled with heterotopic resistance stemming from a persistent subpopulation of cells haying a reduced growth rate within the larger pathogen load, Dr.
