    Chlamydia, or more specifically a chlamydia infection, is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Most people who are infected have no symptoms. When symptoms do develop this can take a few weeks following infection to occur. Symptoms in women may include vaginal discharge or burning with urination. Symptoms in men may include Pronunciation: /kləˈmɪdiə/, klə-MID-ee-yuh.

Abstract. There is a consistent association between evidence of the presence of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection and coronary heart disease (CHD), but a causal relationship between the organism and atherogenesis has not been established (See Table 11).

Since the original report in suggesting that C. pneumoniae was linked with CHD, there has been, understandably, a. In the s, experimental infection of germ-free chickens with an avian herpesvirus was found to produce arterial disease that resembled human atherosclerosis.

1 Associations have since been reported of human coronary heart disease (CHD) with certain gram-negative bacteria (eg, Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae), with certain herpesviruses (particularly Cited by: Chlamydia pneumoniae infection but showed steady elevated titers.

Moreover, these titers were found in patients with chronic coronary heart disease (CCHD) (Table 1). This led us to suggest that CCHD is associated with chronic C. pneumoniae infection, and that in AM1 there is an acute exacerbation of this infection. A new study shows how Chlamydia infections may be linked to heart disease.

The evidence, presented in the 26 February issue of Science, suggests that Chlamydia employ a sneaky tactic known as. Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as coronary heart disease (CHD) or ischemic heart disease (IHD), involves the reduction of blood flow to the heart muscle due to build-up of plaque in the arteries of the heart.

It is the most common of the cardiovascular diseases. Types include stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac cations: Heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms. Objective: To examine the association between coronary heart disease and serum markers of chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae : “Nested” case.

Chronic Infection, Chlamydia and Coronary Heart Disease (Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine, ) Chlamydia Pneumoniae and Chronic Diseases: Proceedings of the State-Of-The-Art Workshop, Held at the Robert Koch-Institut Berlin, on 19 and 20 March The American Heart Association explains that although it is not proven that inflammation causes cardiovascular disease, inflammation is common for heart disease and stroke patients and is thought to be a sign or atherogenic response.

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a bacteria that is most commonly known for causing colds and pneumonia. However, researchers have recently found a link between C. pneumoniae and atherosclerosis, a clogging of the arteries that causes heart attack and stroke. In addition, ongoing research is showing that certain strains may play a role in asthma, multiple sclerosis.

Chlamydia pneumonia and coronary heart disease Chronic chlamydia infection related to 3-fold higher CHD risk In the Zutphen Elderly Study a high level of antibodies to C. pneumonia was associated with an almost 3-fold higher risk of first CHD events after 5 years of follow-up.

Ann Intern Med. ; Google Scholar CrossrefCited by: Background—Infection with Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae is associated with coronary heart conducted an intervention study. We are convinced that Chlamydia pneumoniae research has been unfavorably affected by the negative results of antibiotic treatment trials for the secondary prevention of late-stage coronary heart disease (CHD) (O'Connor et al., ; Cannon et al., ; Grayston et al., ).There is a widespread belief that the clinical trials showed that C.

It now appears that persistent C. pneumoniae infections among humans are widespread, to an estimated 50% infection rate in the United States. Ocular infection is caused by the distinct serovar of Chlamydia trachomatis that causes Trachoma (the most common preventable blinding tropical disease).

In males Chlamydia trachomatis is the number one cause of non-specific urethritis (NSU), prostatitis and epidydimitis. Chlamydia pneumoniae causes heart disease Chlamydia pneumoniae [Chlamydophila pneumoniae] and atherosclerosis. Studies on the role of Chlamydia pneumoniae and other pathogens in cardiovascular disease appear to be inconsistent, because antibody levels are not a meaningful way to measure clinically relevant parameters of infection.

Whether cardiovascular disease is an infectious disease is not clear. A number of infectious agents have been implicated, including Helicobacter pylori, cytomegalovirus and periodontal bacteria, but by far the most studied is Chlamydia the past decade, the role of this organism in development of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease Cited by: This book concerns both basic and clinical concepts and implications of infection by the ubiquitous, opportunistic intracellular bacterium Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cpn), which was recognized only in the last few decades as a cause of significant morbidity and disease in humans.

Infections by Chlamydia are now believed to cause chronic diseases. Public health significance and occurrence of chlamydia Infection with C. trachomatis has become a major public health problem because of the long-term consequences of infection experienced predominantly by women.

These relate mainly to the development of pelvic inflammatory disease and include chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.

Atheromata (plural of atheroma) harbor various pathogenic microbial species, the most significant of which is probably Chlamydia pneumoniae.

34,35 The strong association between chronic C. pneumoniae infection and atherosclerosis has prompted some researchers to identify it as the pathogen implied in a chronic infection theory of heart disease. Studies have suggested that infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae may have a role in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease.

This study casts doubt on the idea, since two years of treatment with Cited by: ratios for coronary heart disease in people with mark› ers of chronic C pneumoniae infection, these studies have generally been small, retrospective, or liable to biases.2–4 We report a study of cases of coronary heart disease and controls “nested” in a prospective cohort of British men monitored for 16 by:   It is linked with acute respiratory diseases, asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, acute chest syndrome, pharyngitis, coronary heart disease and Guillain-Barre syndrome.

In their natural hosts, chlamydial infections usually cause relatively mild diseases characterized by persistent infections with relatively poor immunity, so that recurrent infections can occur.

When this process occurs in the coronary artery, which feeds the heart, it is referred to as coronary heart disease-the most common cause of death in the United States.

One area of investigation that is gaining a great deal of interest is the relationship between chronic infection and atherosclerosis.The Azithromycin in Coronary Artery Disease: Elimination of Myocardial Infection With Chlamydia (ACADEMIC) study was a randomized controlled trial of azithromycin versus placebo for the secondary prevention of coronary artery disease (CAD).
