For decades researchers had searched for peptidoglycan--a mesh-like polymer that forms the cell wall in diverse bacteria--in the bacterial pathogen Chlamydiae peptidoglycan in hopes of studying its structure and synthesis as a path to drug development against a class of bacteria responsible for one in 10 cases of pneumonia in children, as well as more than 21,000,000 cases of the blindness-causing disease trachoma.

trachomatis, the book describes the epidemiology and public health aspects of chlamydia infections, moves to a survey of the genomics and biology of chlamydiae vis-a-vis the broad range of clinical concerns and pathogenesis of infection, reviews immunological response, diagnosis and treatment, and ultimately addresses the current state of vaccine development research.
Chlamydiae are microorganisms that attach to columnar epithelial cells without invading the deep tissue.

Chlamydiae have a slow developmental cycle, which explains the insidious onset of chlamydial infection (Mgiga 2006).
A presenca dos corpos bacterianos aparentemente intactos no interior dos fagossomas macrofagicos sugere que essas bacterias tenham um mecanismo que evita que a vesicula endocitica se junte com o lisossoma, impedindo, dessa forma, a exposicao as enzimas lisossomais, semelhante ao que ocorre quando os macrofagos fagocitam Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Toxoplasma gondii, Encephalitozoon cuniculi e algumas Chlamydiae (FRIEDMAN et al.

Considering that the chlamydiae sampling procedures and detection methods used in this study were not the most sensitive, the results underestimate the chlamydial eye infections and represent a conservative assessment of a potential risk for preventable visual impairment.
Chlamydiae are obligate intracellular bacteria with a cell wall with an inner and outer membrane similar to any of Gram Negative bacteria and responsible for various acute and chronic diseases in animals and humans.
