Abstract

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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
