- ... Chlamydia psittaci is an important avian pathogen with spillover from infected wild and domesticated birds also posing a risk to human health. We recently reported a case of C. psittaci equine placentitis associated with further spillover to humans. Molecular typing of this case revealed it belonged to the 6BC clade of C. psittaci, a globally distributed highly virulent set of strains, typically l ...

- ... Chlamydia and Chlamydia‐like bacteria are well known to infect several organisms and may cause a wide range of diseases, particularly in ruminants. To gain insight into the prevalence and diversity of these intracellular bacteria, we applied a pan‐Chlamydiales real‐time PCR to 1,134 veterinary samples taken from 130 Tunisian ruminant herds. The true adjusted animal population‐level prevalence was ...
