Scientists one step closer to chlamydia vaccine

Scientists one step closer to chlamydia vaccine

Canadian scientists developed a chlamydia vaccine prototype, which fought off the infection in mice.

Scientists from McMaster University in Ontario gave mice two doses of the immunization through the nose. Then, exposed them to chlamydia, the most commonly reported STD in the U.S.

Vaccinated mice had fewer signs of damage to reproductive organs and less copies of bacteria in their systems, their study showed. The immunization reduced chlamydial shedding – a symptom of chlamydia – by 95%.

If left untreated, chlamydia could prevent a woman from getting pregnant or cause pregnancy complications. Most people who have the STD have no symptoms

Researchers said this vaccine looks promising and has the potential to protect against chlamydia trachomatis, an eye infection caused by chlamydia.

James Mahony, professor at St. Joseph Healthcare Hamilton’s Research Institute where the work was performed, said the vaccine will be tested on other animals before human trial.
