Trachoma is an infectious disease caused by bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. The infection causes a roughening of the inner surface of the eyelids. This roughening can lead to pain in the eyes, breakdown of the outer surface or cornea of the eyes, and eventual blindness.

Untreated, repeated trachoma infections can result in a form of permanent blindness when the eyelids turn : Chlamydia trachomatis spread between people. Isolation of the Trachoma Agent in Cell Culture. Gordon and A. Quan Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 2, Trachoma is a contagious bacterial infection that affects the surface of the eyes.

Over time, scar tissue or ulcers can form that lead to blindness. Currently around million people worldwide are blind or visually impaired by trachoma, and it remains a public health problem in 44 countries.

Global Trachoma Mapping Project (GTMP) and case-management. The meeting will consider in particular the progress made towards elimination of trachoma in various countries.

It is planned to hold the 18th meeting in a trachoma-endemic country: several offers to host the meeting have already been received, and other. At first, the causing agent of trachoma was believed to be a virus because of its small size and inability to culture, except in living cells.6 By the 's, Chlamydia trachomatis deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) were found and because of susceptibility to antibiotics, it was assumed to be a bacterium Hugh R Taylor, Anu Mathew, in Hunter's Tropical Medicine and Emerging Infectious Disease (Ninth Edition), Introduction.

Trachoma is caused by infection of the ocular surface with the bacterium Chlamydia infection is spread by mucus membrane contact with an infected person (or their secretions) and by mechanical transmission by flies.

SUMMARY: Propagation of the trachoma agent in human cell cultures has made possible the observation by electron microscopy of sequential stages in the replication of the micro-organism. Scattered reticular foci with incomplete limiting membranes were present in the cytoplasm of HeLa cells 12 hr.

trachomatis strains are still responsible for most preventable blindness in underdeveloped. Abstract. The genus Chlamydia is composed of two species of morphologically and developmentally related prokaryotic microorganisms. The chlamydiae are obligate intracellular microbes capable of replication only within the confines of a membrane- bound vesicle (inclusion) in the cytoplasm of susceptible eukaryotic host cells.
