Chlamydia trachomatis serovars among strains isolated from members of rural indigenous communities and urban populations in Australia
Bandea, Claudiu I., Debattista, Joseph, Joseph, Kahaliah, Igietseme, Joseph, Timms, Peter, & Black, Carolyn M. (2008) Chlamydia trachomatis serovars among strains isolated from members of rural indigenous communities and urban populations in Australia. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 46(1), pp. 355-356.
We genotyped Chlamydia trachomatis strains from 45 women or men living in either a rural indigenous community or in urban heterosexual communities. We found six different C. trachomatis serovars: E (n = 22; 48.9%), F (n = 10; 22.2%), J/Ja (n = 5; 11.1%), D/Da (n = 4; 8.9%), G (n = 3; 6.7%), and K (n = 1; 2.2%). The distribution of C. trachomatis serovars among members of the indigenous rural and the urban Australian communities appears similar to that in other Western countries.
