Variation in virulence among oculogenital serovars of Chlamydia trachomatis in experimental genital tract infection.

By J I Ito, J M Lyons and L P Airo-Brown

Abstract

Seven different oculogenital serovars (D, E, F, G, H, I, and K) of Chlamydia trachomatis were inoculated intravaginally into CF-1 mice, and subsequent infection was monitored. The duration of infection was longest with serovars D and E. This may help to explain clinical surveys which demonstrate a high (50%) prevalence of these serovars. Furthermore, a comparison of the invasiveness of strains D and H demonstrated a much higher frequency of uterine horn infection with serovar D
