The present invention relates generally to methods for diagnosing and treating infectious diseases and other conditions related thereto. More particularly, the present invention relates to methods for determining the presence of organisms of the Chlamydiaceae family in a subject, including species of Chlamydia, and to methods for determining the stage of an infection caused by such organisms. The present invention also relates to kits for use with the diagnostic methods. The methods and kits of the present invention are particularly useful in relation to human and non-human, i.e. veterinary subjects. The present invention further relates to methods for identifying proteins or nucleic acid sequences associated with chlamydial infection in a subject. Such proteins or nucleic acid sequences are not only useful in relation to the diagnostic methods of the invention but are also useful in the development of methods and agents for preventing and/or treating chlamydial infection in a subject, such as but not limited to, immunotherapeutic methods and agents.

Impact and interest:

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.
