Although focused on respiratory disease, this slide show provides and excellent summary of Cpn in general, and why combination antibiotic therapy is so important. Click This Link for a powerpoint presentation by Charles Stratton on Cpn. It includes great pictures of the organism at different life phases, and links Cpn various diseases.Download a .pdf file of the slide show, thanks to Red (!) CLICK HERE
I have culled from Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784 an exhaustive list of diseases where Cpn has been implicated as a possible cause or co-factor (reference: Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784):
Diseases where an association has been discovered between chronic Chlamydia infection of body fluids and/or tissues with several disease syndromes of previously unknown etiology in humans which respond to unique antichlamydial regimens include:
