Refocus page on bacterium, not on infection with[edit]

This page needs to be refocused on the species, C. trachomatis. The infection caused by it is presently being covered at chlamydia infection. Also, the appropriate redirect links need to be added to the chlamydia infection page, the chlamydia bacterium page, etc. Comments, questions, assistance? Walking Softly 03:49, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Ref issue[edit]


"Many, but not all,[2] C. trachomatis strains have an extrachromosomal plasmid." The reference do not support the statement. The reference talks about a new variant C. trachomatis which has a deletion in its plasmids (not a variant without plasmids). (talk) 15:07, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Fixed. New ref (Carlson JH, Whitmire WM, Crane DD; et al. (2008). "The Chlamydia trachomatis plasmid is a transcriptional regulator of chromosomal genes and a virulence factor". Infection and immunity. 76 (6): 2273–83. doi:10.1128/IAI.00102-08. PMC 2423098Freely accessible. PMID 18347045.  Unknown parameter |month= ignored (help) ) discusses existence of plasmid-free strains (both wild-type and lab) in the introduction. -- MarcoTolo (talk) 20:10, 27 October 2008 (UTC)


Staccato cough? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:22, 5 January 2009 (UTC) Everyone in the world has this disease.

I added a title Professor Tang Feifan[edit]

I've looked and I don't see hardly any mention of Professor Tang Feifan online other than what is in some medical texts. Is there a viable citation I could go look up at the library?
