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

Prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection in infertile women at a university hospital in Jordan Al Ramahi, M.; Mahafzah, A.; Saleh, S.; Fram, K. (2008)In a prospective controlled study, we aimed to determine the prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection in Jordanian women attending an infertility clinic and whether screening is useful as part of routine investigations for infertility. Two groups of patients [152 infertile patients and 146 control patients] had endocervical swab testing by polymerase chain reaction for the presence of C. trachomatis infection. A total of 6/152 patients in the infertility group tested positive for C. trachomatis [3.9%], compared with 1/146 patients in the ...
