Abstract

Members of the genus, Chlamydia, are obligate intracellular bacteria that have a unique developmental cycle. These organisms are widespread in nature and are common human pathogens. In this review, we describe new data related to the characterization of acquired immunity to Chlamydia trachomatis that is relevant to vaccine development. We also discuss recent work on vaccine candidates against this ubiquitous pathogen.
