Chlamydia trachomatis and rubella antibodies in women with full-term deliveries and women with abortion in Baghdad
AbstractThe seroprevalences of Chlamydia trachomatis and rubella IgG antibodies were measured in women with full-term deliveries [n = 198] and with abortion [n = 79] in a hospital in Baghdad city, Iraq. Positive rubella antibody titres were found in 42.9% of mothers with full-term deliveries and 34.2% with abortion. C. trachomatis infection was found in 13.6% of mothers with full-term deliveries and 6.4% with abortion, with a significant difference in mean antibody levels between the 2 groups. Routine screening for C. trachomatis and rubella is needed for pregnant women in Iraq
