Description
Abstract
The prevalence of female genitourinary chlamydial infection in Montana is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence by a serological survey. Random serum samples from women, age 15 to 4-5, were tested for antichlamydial antibody using the complement fixation test. The results showed 24 out of 100 women with detectable antibody titers and six out of 100 women with high titers. This study shows that the chlamydial agent is prevalent and could be responsible for some cases of female genitourinary infection in Montana.
