We have established an in vitro model of long-term continuous Chlamydia pneumoniae infection in HEp-2 cells. Using transmission electron microscopy, we demonstrated the presence of spontaneous abnormal chlamydial inclusions similar in appearance to the persistent chlamydial forms induced in vitro by treatment with cytokines or antibiotics or by nutrient deprivation.

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.
