Detecting chlamydial infection in women

Abstract (2. Language): 
Chlamydia trachomatis infections are the most common bacterial cause of sexually transmitted disease in the world. In women, these infections often result in such serious reproductive tract complications as pelvic inflamatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy and an infected woman can pass the infection to her newborn during delivery. The diagnosis of C Trachomatis infections has historically been difficult, but newer chlamydia diagnostic tests have become clinically available in the past decade.
