Fallopian tube samples of patients with ectopic pregnancy have also been found positive for C. trachomatis
deoxyribonucleic acid using the polymerase chain reaction.
Permeabilized cells were stained for direct immunofluorescence (IF) using FITC--conjugated species-specific monoclonal antibody against the major outer-membrane protein of C. trachomatis
(Bio-Rad), or FITC--conjugated monoclonal antibody against chlamydial lipopolysaccharide (Nearmedic Plus, RF).

In pregnant women, colonization of C. trachomatis
in the genital tract during early gestation has been associated with spontaneous preterm birth (PTB), preterm premature rupture of the membranes, prematurity, spontaneous abortion, perinatal morbidity and mortality (1-4).
Studies in literature indicate that prevalent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) for genital area are C. trachomatis
, Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV 2) and CMV in women.
To determine the frequency of detection of conjunctival C. trachomatis
The product does not require purification of total DNA from the urine sample and heating the sample for five minutes at 90 degrees Celsius is sufficient to release enough amplification target that will detect if C. trachomatis
According to the CDC, C. trachomatis
infection among pregnant women in the United States is the third main cause of STD, with bacterial vaginosis and herpes simplex virus 2 being first and second, respectively.
