Chlamydia infection is a common sexually transmitted disease that can lead to infertility. Scientists are conducting a study to find a vaccine, and the results are encouraging, according to AFP.
But more research is needed to find out if "the triggered immune response effectively prevents chlamydia infection. "
This would be the first vaccine taken against this bacterial infection and will be tested in a clinical trial in the next phase of the study.
The disease is more common among young women, 18-25 years old, than men of the same age. The disease can lead to infertility in women and increase the risk of contracting other sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea or HIV infection.
At this point, the infection is treated with antibiotics.
