  • Rodríguez Pérez, Abreu Mireya, Waard Mazzali


Infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae occurs worldwide, resulting in a 40-90% prevalence of serum antibody to the species in various populations. Serology is the most commonly used diagnostic tool for the detection of respiratory chlamydial infections in routine clinical practice. The major issue of this study is the validity of the tests used, especially the new rDNA LPS ELISA.
