AbstractChlamydia trachomatis infection is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States. Irregular screening to identify infected individuals and a lack of sterilizing immunity to C. trachomatis has led to a dramatic increase in the number of reported C. trachomatis infections over the last twenty years. Repeated infections with C. trachomatis lead to serious sequelae such as pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy, which can result in infertility.
