    ..Seroprevalence against A. phagocytophilum was 2.3% in Selenge province, 5.6% in Bulgan province, 2.8% in Dornogov province, and 3.0% in Tov province and Ulaanbaatar. We conclude that all three pathogens are endemic in Mongolia...

    Int J Med Microbiol 296:297-301. 2006
    ..All patients were treated with tetracyclines, which led to prompt improvement of the clinical conditions. Anti-platelet antibodies were observed in one of four patients, but remained unchanged after complete covalescence...

    Emerg Infect Dis 9:1642-4. 2003
    ..The pathogen was identified in a patient with severe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) by sequence analysis of the ompA gene. Our findings raise the possibility that Chlamydiaceae other than Chlamydia trachomatis are involved in PID...

    Martina Prelog
    Department of Pediatrics I, Medical University Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria
    Vaccine 26:595-600. 2008
