  1. Prevalence of Chlamydia pneumoniae specific antibodies in different clinical situations and healthy subjects in Izmir, Turkey.

    Article - En anglais

    Serological markers for Chlamydia pneumoniae were investigated by using the microimmunofluorescence (MIF) test in various age and patient groups in a specific area in Turkey.

    IgG seropositivity to C. pneumoniae was 64.3% and 18.7% in healthy adults and children, respectively.

    The highest positivity rate (77%) was in the 15-19 age group.

    Among the groups investigated, serological findings revealed a possible etiological association between C. pneumoniae and the clinical condition in the groups with acute myocardial infarction, atypical pneumoniae and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
