Zentrale Rolle im Genom der Influenza-Viren spielen die Glykoproteine (Eiweiße mit Zuckergruppen) Hämagglutinin und Neuraminidase. Hämagglutinin dient dem Anheften der Viren an Rezeptoren der Wirtszellen, Neuraminidase spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Freisetzung neuer Viren.
Hämagglutinin bindet an spezifische Rezeptoren der Epithelzellen und bewirkt so die Aufnahme des Virus in die Wirtszelle über Endocytose (Einstülpungsvorgang der Zellmembran, bei der ein Teil des Außenmediums in das Zellinnere aufgenommen wird). Hämagglutinin bewirkt weiterhin eine Verschmelzung der Virushülle mit der Zellmembran und das Viruscapsid (Virus-RNA mit Eiweißschutzhülle) wird in die Wirtszelle freigegeben (Uncoating). Dieser Vorgang ist bereits 30 Minuten nach dem Anbinden an die Zelle abgeschlossen. Im weiteren Prozess werden das virale Genom im Zellkern der Wirtszelle kopiert (repliziert) und neue Viruspartikel im Cytosol(flüssige Matrix der ausfüllenden Grundstruktur der Zelle) fertiggestellt. Diese gelangen wieder zur Zellmembran, welche die Viruspartikel umschließt und aus der Zelle transportiert (Exocytose). Die neu entstandenen Viren werden durch die Neuraminidase von den Zellen abgetrennt und können nun weitere Zellen infizieren.  Dieser Vorgang ist nach 6 Stunden abgeschlossen. 
Die Inkubationszeit ist im Wesentlichen von 2 Punkten abhängig:
- Dosis der Viruspartikel: Je nach Menge der Viruspartikel kann die genannte Inkubationszeit variieren. Eine sehr hohe Dosis kann somit die Inkubationszeit verkürzen.
- Verfassung des Infizierten: Der Gesundheitszustand des Betroffenen kann Einfluss auf die Inkubationszeit haben. Bei einem sehr effizienten Immunsystem mit entsprechenden Antikörpern kann der Ausbruch der Krankheit in dieser Zeit sogar noch abgewendet werden. In diesem Fall ist es möglich, dass die Infektion mit dem Virus gar nicht registriert wird.
Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed by a doctor with a TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) test and an evaluation of your symptoms. Symptoms of hypothyroidism may be general, such as tiredness and constipation, and can often be confused with other health conditions. Symptoms usually appear slowly, over several months or years. No one can predict exactly which symptoms a person will develop or how severe the symptoms will be. Some people have many symptoms by the time they are diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Others have few, if any, symptoms. Because the symptoms are so variable, it’s important to talk with your doctor about your symptoms and to have a TSH test.
Here are some common symptoms* to look out for:
Weight gain due to fluid retention
Increased sensitivity to cold
Brittle fingernails and hair
Dry, rough, pale skin
Muscle and joint pain
Heavy menstrual bleeding
or irregular periods
I think you’re better off going cold turkey.n I tried weaning off and in the end the effects of withdrawal were horrible anyway. If you can stick with it for 4 to 6 weeks, they will subside …. Hope you can hang in there.
After an obnoxious amount of digestive upset, numerous UTI’s and 30+ pounds of weight gain, I have finally significantly reduced my aspartame intake. I made the decision one day after feeling incredibly bloated and gross. I was up to drinking 1-2 can’s of Pepsi Max and 1-2 glasses (equal to 4 servings) of crystal light a day. In addition I chew gum, up to 7 pieces a day. I am now on day 13 of no beverages or foods with aspartame. I still chew the gum as I have not yet found a substitute, but only about 3-4 pieces a day. For me, gum is more of a physical addiction. I need to chew on something. I have replaced my daily beverages with plain water, sparkling seltzer water that is only carbonated water and natural flavors, no other ingredients. When I feel like I want some soda, I drink regular. I don’t really crave pop anymore so I only have maybe 2-3 a week. As for caffeine, I take Green Tea tablets. I am more cautious of ingredients in everything. I never had a weight problem until I used “diet” beverages and foods. This sucks as I now have more than 30 pounds to try and lose.
As for the withdrawal…the first 7-10 days were the most difficult. I have had mood swings between anger and wanting to just cry for no reason at all. I do feel like those are beginning to subside some also. I have also began to get really itchy all over, no rash, just itchy and my muscles are achy. I am guessing that this is my body “cleansing” itself of the toxins. I knew going into this there was no quick fix, so I am prepared to deal with this until I am clean. I already feel better and my digestive system no longer sounds like I have an alien living inside of me. I am less bloated and I am beginning to come out of the fog and feel like me again.
Thank you for this article, it is a real problem, the artificial sweeteners. I am more cautious now and will continue to be.
Aspartame withdrawal: my symptoms – hostility, anger, headaches, diarrhea, joint pain, clumsiness including falling, trouble sleeping, nightmares, jaw pain, dizziness. Diet coke addict for thirty years (3-5) servings per day. Plus equal user. Trying sugar and Pepsi one now.
Day 8 and I thought I was doing great until I started feeling a yeast infection coming on. I can do this. I can do this. I am 42 and started drinking diet coke in high school. I started drinking more and more. Too much. I weened myself off…wish I would have gone cold turkey though… Side affects would have subsided sooner.
Joint pain-shoulders elbows wrists
Lower back pain
Hyper at times
Lethargic – missed 2 days of work
I want to know why there is nothing credible popping up on all my searches? And I want to know why they are allowed to still allow us to consume this poison? I must say, I am not looking forward to whatever else is going to happen to my body over the next few weeks. However, emotionally I feel fantastic and I have gotten great sleep the past couple nights.
Day 5, second time giving up diet sodas, diet dr peppers and diet cokes being my drug of choice. I am severely addicted, diet drinks have literally been the only liquid I consume other than milk in cereal. I have been addicted over 10 years. The first time I gave it up the symptoms were the same but this time they are much harder to handle. The first symptom to manifest is emotional, floating from anger to sadness to frustration. Then I feel like my body begins a purge, first by canker sores then yeast infection (sorry fellas for tmi) now I’m in the headache and body ache stage accompanied by lethargy and inability to sleep, anxiety and continued emotional withdrawal. I had to leave work early today. This addiction is no laughing matter and I long for the day when the dangers of this poison are more widely known and taken seriously. It’s hard to explain to others what you are going though by giving up the diet drinks, most people don’t take you seriously and that only makes it harder.
My real problem started when I moved to Canada. I am used to drinking cordials in UK which do not contain aspartame. I rarely drank much diet coke.
However they don’t have cordials in Canada and the fruit drinks here give me acid reflux, even water has an effect. I found diet coke didn’t upset my stomach so all I could do was use that as my main fluid intake. Anyway 3years down the road I haven’t been well at all since moving to Canada. I have gained weight and basically having problems with the food and drink here (all the additives) I realized this week it appears I have symptoms of aspartame poisoning, so I gave up diet coke three days ago. I found some English Elderflower drinks which do not seem to affect me.
My first day I felt sick and had cravings for sweet things. My second day I felt flu like feelings and my glands were raised. My third day today I developed a terrible migraine and had to lay in a dark room and I have buzzing in my ears.
I am however determined to eat healthy now and loose weight. I have gained around 60lbs since moving to Canada yep 60lbs but I am determined to loose it all and regain my health. So three days into my new life. The good thing is I am finally able to shop more healthy and have worked out the system here. Shopping has been difficult as 90% of products are different so basically I have picked all the wrong foods including US fruit which was obviously irradiated. I bought strawberries they were in the fridge over a month and didn’t show one sign of mould.
THERE IS NO LABELLING WHICH STATES IRRADIATION OR MOST OF THE ADDITIVES
I am becoming wise at long last. So wish me luck
For the last 6 years I’ve consumed between 2-6 cans of diet cola a day. I’m currently on day 7 of quitting and I feel like death… For the past few days I’ve been irritable and lethargic with blurred vision and uncontrollable bouts of depression. Yesterday I was reduced to lying in a dark room all day because of the horrific migraine I had, and today I’m dizzy and suffering with awful vertigo… I now feel the need to tell everyone I know about aspartame. It’s TOXIC!
I’m on day 7 and feel the very same. I’ve been addicted for 30 yrs
Ugh. I’ve been a regular diet dr. Pepper drinker for about 4-5 years now. It’s definitely within the last 9 months that I’ve increased my intake dramatically. I’d say that I drink between 4-9 cans a day. I’m an addict. And I definitely suffer from aspartame poisoning. And i only just realized my symptoms: fatigue, irritability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, carb craving, foggy head, confusion, joint pain, headaches…the depression was the biggest concern. And it’s been getting worse and worse…I thought I was going crazy. I would catch myself mid thought and forget was I was tasking about. At work recently Ive found myself many times having a hard time “getting it together.” Being forgetful, flighty, discombobulated, etc…and I found myself near tears at work like 4 times last night. For no reason at all. No good reason at least. Lamenting over my stressful, but good life. That was my big aha…something is NOT right and I thought it was more than jsut regular depression.
- Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
- Congestive cardiac failure (CCF)
- Pericarditis, especially viral pericarditis
Reduced lung function or constriction of the airways hampers gas exchange with the blood and therefore its oxygenation or the flow of oxygen rich air into the lungs. The subsequent build up of carbon dioxide in the blood (hypercapnia) and changes in blood pH may also be contributing factors to malaise associated with the respiratory system.
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Acute bronchitis
- Pulmonary tuberculosis (lung TB)
Endocrine disorders are diseases pertaining to the glands and hormones. These structures and chemicals are responsible for regulating almost all activity in the body, including the metabolic rate, water and electrolyte levels, and blood glucose. Although symptoms of endocrine dysfunction is not always apparent immediately, dysfunction tends to lead to non-specific symptoms such as malaise.
- Diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes)
- Underactive or overactive thyroid gland
- Adrenal gland disorders
- Pituitary gland dysfunction
Autoimmune disorders where the immune system turns against the body’s own tissues may present with malaise apart from localized symptoms pertaining to the organ that is affected. Immune deficient states where the immune defenses are weakened may increase the chances of recurrent infections from various pathogens. Malaise may sometimes be a constant feeling apart from the symptoms specific to each infection.
- Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Long term diabetes mellitus
A flu-like feeling can occur shortly after vaccinations but is usually short-lived. This is a response of the immune system as it develops protection against the specific disease.
Malignant tumors may also contribute to malaise even when the cancer is well localized. However, it is cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma that are more likely to present with non-specific symptoms like malaise for a long period of time even in the absence of other symptoms. Some cancers produce and secrete certain hormone-like substances into the bloodstream – carcinoid syndrome. Metastatic spread involving cancer on multiple sites, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are among the more common cancer causes of malaise.
The most common hematological causes of malaise is severe anemia. However, changes in blood pH and a build up of wastes in the bloodstream (uremia) associated with kidney disorders are other common causes. Very serious cases includes septicemia where there is an accumulation of bacterial toxins in the bloodstream.
The psychiatric causes of malaise is largely associated with depression. There may be no change in any of the usual systems that are affected in malaise. Rather the low quantities of serotonin and the subsequent depressed mood may be mistaken for a fluish feeling. Sometimes it is entirely psychogenic meaning that it is imagined rather than being associated with actual changes in the body. Many psychiatric drugs cause malaise.
Prescription medication that may contribute to malaise includes:
- Antiretrovirals for HIV/AIDS
- High blood pressure medication
- Seizure drugs
Drug interactions where there is a reaction with the use of two or more medication simultaneously may also be responsible for malaise. Alcoholism, accidental or intentional poisoning and the use of illicit drugs can all contribute to malaise even after these substances wear off and have been removed from the system.
From its discovery until 2006, confirmed cases of Zika virus infection were rare, although cases were reported during the 60's in Africa and South-East Asia. Analysis suggested that the African and Asian strains emerged as two distinct lineages.
The first outbreak outside of Africa and Asia was documented on Yap Island in the Federal States of Micronesia, in 2007.
Clinical and serologic evidence indicate that 2 American scientists contracted Zika virus infections while working in Senegal in 2008. One of the scientists transmitted this arbovirus to his wife after his return home. Direct contact is implicated as the transmission route, most likely as a sexually transmitted infection since none of their four children contracted the virus.
The largest outbreak of the Zika Virus began in October 2013 in French Polynesia, South Pacific with an estimated 28,000 infections. Outbreaks also occurred in Easter Island, the Cook Islands and New Caledonia.
CSF in United Kingdom: control & past outbreaks CSF in Wild Boar in Europe: EU
Clinical signs usually appear 5-10 days after infection (occasionally longer). An individual pig may show one of four types of clinical effect:
a) Peracute (sudden death)
Especially at the beginning of a farm outbreak, young pigs may be found dead without any prior sign of illness;
b) Acute CSF (most common form)
Fever (40.5-41.5 °C,105-107°F) is often the first sign, then depression, weakness, anorexia, conjunctivitis. Constipation may be followed by diarrhoea or vomiting. There may be purple discoloration of abdominal skin, or necrosis of the tips of extremities (ears, tail, vulva). Neurological signs may occur: incoordination, tremors, convulsions, circling.
There is a high mortality (close to 100%) of acutely affected pigs, usually within a week of initial signs.
Other infections may occur concomitantly with CSF, the classic example being Salmonella choleraesuis
There may be abortions, stillbirths, mummifications and also congenital tremor of piglets.
Peracute cases may show no gross lesions. In acute cases there are haemorrhagic lesions at autopsy. The haemorrhages are most marked under the kidney capsule and in lymph nodes, ileocaecal valve, bladder and larynx. There may also be skin reddening.

Intestinal "button ulcers" may be seen, particularly in the proximal colon. They are 1-2 cm diameter with a necrotic centre.

Cerebellar hypoplasia occurs in neonatal pigs with congenital trembling.
The Pig is the only species clinically affected although the virus can replicate transiently in sheep and cattle. Wild boars can be a reservoir.
Pigs can become infected by ingestion, inhalation, genital (natural or A.I. semen) infection, by contamination of abrasions or by transplacental infection of fetuses.
Most spread of CSF is by movement of infected pigs or feeding of inadequately cooked garbage (swill). Spread by artificial insemination was first recognised during the Netherlands epidemic of 1997.
Persistent carriers of CSF virus can result from the phenomenon of immunotolerance to CSF virus. Immunotolerance can arise from transplacental infection during fetal life and results in a lifelong high level of viraemia (virus in the blood) without any antibody response. These pigs can only be detected by virus isolation, or by immunohistochemistry after death. Further information can be found in the Chapter on CSF in "Diseases of Swine" (Details of the book and how to order on-line).
Local spread from infected farms to neighbouring farms within 1 km is well recognised, although the precise means of transmission can rarely be proven. Birds, rodents, pets or other animals may be involved. Slurry spreading is also possibly involved.
Spread can be associated with vehicles used for moving live pigs or for disposing of carcasses or manure. Other vehicles are theoretically possible but not proven e.g.feed delivery vehicles.
There are 100 recognized species of the genus Mycoplasma. The overall of Mycoplasmosis Bacteria: Mycoplasma is the smallest of bacteria's and has the ability to enter any cell and alter itself, changing its cellular makeup with every cell division. It invades all systems of the human body, including the nerves. It lacks a cell wall and thereby are unaffected by many common antibiotics and penicillin.
Depends on species. E.g. cough, air, insects, sexual transmission, etc.
Some diseases it causes: Blood and lung infection in newborn, neonatal meningitis, Infectious, Crohn’s Diseasearthritis/septic arthritis,Irritable Bowel Syndrome,Inflammation of the uterus,Pelvic inflammatory disease,Inflammation of the urethra, Disorders of the eye and ear, Periodontal disease and gingivitis,Kidney infection and Surgical wound infections

Neuro: Stuttering or stammering,Difficulty finding words, Poor balance or unsteadiness, Dizziness, Deteriorated penmanship,Lightheadedness
Since these organisms can be present without causing disease Mycoplasma detection is difficult, as well, it is found in various tissues (intracellular)and rarely is it found free in the blood. Often doctors make the diagnosis by eliminating other causes. Since Mycoplasma infection signs are highly variable it is not uncommon for a diagnosis to be entirely missed.
It is recommended that mycoplasmal infections be tested for in every case of Lyme Disease using the most sensitive PCR procedures to detect the mycoplasma DNA in white blood cells.
Mycoplasma species are difficult to test for, and this usually requires a PCR test on blood leukocytes (white blood cells). Only a few commercial labs, such as VIP Labs of Reno, know how to test for Mycoplasma infections, and even labs that are very good at Lyme testing, such as Igenex Labs, can’t do the Mycoplasma testing. The following group may be able to direct you to good mycoplasma testing, as few Labs have proven able to do this type of testing. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MycoplasmaRegistry/
To eradicate this bacteria:
For eradicating any and all Mycoplasma's it can be done by making the body's environment where these wall lacking bacteria's can no longer sustain life in 14 days. More info.
Medical:Antibiotics such as Doxycycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Minocycline, and Tetracycline are usually used to treat this infection, typically requiring a 6 month course of treatment with no break followed by several 6 week on, 2 weeks off antibiotic cycles. Long-term therapy is needed in cases of chronic illness (like Lyme disease). A long course of antibiotics and a change of antibiotics along the way, (more then a year).
Other Mycoplasma eradicators: RIFE frequencies,energy medicines, natural plant antibiotics like olive leaf extract, Neem, Cinnamon leafn and uva ursi are also used. In this case additions of supplements are usually required to rebuild and support the immune system.
With treatment the last symptoms to disappear are those of the central and peripheral nervous systems pain; skin sensitivity, burning and other nerve pain.
Many people recover from Mycoplasma infections and are fine for years when treated with antibiotics. They may later have an incident involving severe trauma or other significant life stressor and symptoms fully reappear within weeks to months. Not so with Rife frequencies or Cinnamon verum that have eradicated the Mycoplasma completely.
Peripheral neuropathy requires time for full recovery.
Difficulties: Medical: Reports have emerged, especially in Asia, showing that Mycoplasma pneumoniae may be developing resistance to macrolides such as Azithromycin and Clarithromycin.
Lyme & CoInfections Symptoms Comparison Mycoplasma fermentans
M. fermentans is the most common co-infection with Borrelia burgdorferi in Lyme Disease. Bacteria:
Mycoplasma is the smallest of bacteria's and has the ability to enter any cell and alter itself, changing its cellular makeup with every cell division. Lacks cell wall. It can invade all systems of the human body.
Found in ticks with or without Borrelia. Those infected may not have symptoms or produce numerous symptoms that are similar to Lyme disease.
For those who do have symptoms Mycoplasma fermentans produces numerous symptoms very similar to Lyme disease and M.fermentans will manifest different symptoms for each individual person. Like Lyme, it is also multi-systemic, infecting any system in the body. From no symptoms to flu-like aches and pains to almost debilitating cramps and spasms.
Abdominal bloating, nausea, diarrhea.
Light sensitive, visual disturbances, floaters in the eyes, eye pain.
Heart - organs:
Blood pressure abnormalities, congestive heart failure.
Chemical sensitivities, lymph node pain, periodic fevers, headaches, skin rashes.Inflammation.
Joint stiffness and pain, muscle spasms, balance problems.
Memory loss, depression, irritability, loss of concentration, nervousness, and anxiety
Neuro: Extremely sensitive "trigger spots" that come and go anywhere on the body.
Chronic bronchitis, congestion, coughing, persistent coughing, chest pain, breathing irregularities.
sleep disturbances, Chronic fatigue
Problems with urination
Mycoplasma detection is difficult because it is found in various tissues and only rarely found in the blood. Since these organisms can be present without causing disease, diagnosis is challenging.

To eradicate this bacteria:
A long course of antibiotics and a change of antibiotics along the way, (more then a year).
Other Mycoplasma eradicators: RIFE frequencies, herbs, energy medicines, other.etc. along with building up the immune system.
The Mycoplasma bacteria must be eradicated. Treating symptoms does not prevent the Mycoplasma 's from multiplying or manifesting its many distressing symptoms.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae ( Type strain: ATCC 15531, NCTC 10119 ) In North America, M. pneumoniae is the most common Mycoplasma seen in various diseases.
M pneumoniae, is a pleomorphic organism that, unlike bacteria, lacks a cell wall, and unlike viruses, does not need a host cell for replication. L ikes to live on the surface cells (mucosa) of the respiratory tract and can cause inflammation of most structures there.
Incubation: 9- to 12-day incubation period
Rash: When the organism infects the skin, it creates non-specific rashes
Symptoms: Typically causes mild, or even no, symptoms. Even if symptoms are mild, its tendency is to cause lingering after-effects, particularly joint and muscle pain, with full recovery potentially taking months.
Cough, sore throat,earache, headache,fever, Chills, and malaise. The frequency and severity of cough may increase over next few days after onset and may become debilitating.
Ears: inflammation of the eardrum
Sometimes double vision and decreased vision, eye infection.
Head, neck, face:
Scratchy sore throat, laryngitis, temporary paralysis, mainly in the face. Headache. Persistent, slowly worsening dry cough; absence of cough makes the diagnosis of M pneumoniae unlikely
Muscle and joint aches then lasting beyond infection
Confusion, acute psychosis secondary to encephalitis, inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), aseptic meningitis, confusion, acute psychosis secondary to encephalitis, double vision and decreased vision, and temporary paralysis, mainly in the face.
Pneumonia/pneumonitis, walking pneumonia, regular pneumonia, bronchitis,s ore chest and tracheal tenderness (result of the protracted cough). F lulike symptoms such as fever, nonproductive cough, generalized aches and pains, and nasal congestion. Typical pneumonia usually involves a productive cough and chest pain close to the site of the pneumonia.)Original symptoms persist, with a worsening and relatively nonproductive cough.
Medical- Chest x-ray,Complete blood count,Blood tests for antibodies to mycoplasma, Blood cultures, Bronchoscopy,CT scan of the chest, Sputum culture to check for mycoplasma bacteria. Open lung biopsy (only done in very serious illnesses when the diagnosis cannot be made from other sources)
To eradicate this bacteria:
Antibiotics such as Doxycycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, Ciiprofloxacin, and Tetracycline typically requiring two to three weeks treatment, and long-term therapy may be needed in cases of chronic illness.
Nathropatic remedies such as olive leaf extract, uva ursi and Neem have also been used and other.. RIFE along with natural supplements, minerals, etc. to rebuild the immune system.
Mycoplasmal pneumonia is most common in people younger then forty years of age.
* C. pneumoniae has been reported as a possible cause of atherosclerosis and central nervous system disorders.
Symptoms Long term or complications:
Skin problems, such as rashes.Eyes:optic nerve inflammation. Cardiac: Arrhythmia's, conduction defects,congestive failure, Pericarditis, Myocarditis, Endocarditis. GI symptoms. Facial paralysis, as in Bell's Palsy, Neurological: Aseptic meningitis Encephalitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,Renaud phenomenon, Peripheral neuropathies and radiculopathies, Brainstem dysfunction,Dysfunction of the pyramidal or extrapyramidal tract,Cerebellar dysfunction, Cerebral infarction, Musculoskeletal manifestations: Polyarthralgias,Acute arthritis (monoarticular or migratory), Digital necrosis, Hematologic manifestations: Immune hemolytic anemia, Pancytopenia, Splenic infarct, Hemophilialike illness Mycoplasma Hominis
In Europe, M. hominis is the most prevalent mycoplasma. Incubation: Unknown
Principally transmitted by sexual contact and cervical and vaginal contact during birth
M. hominis is also suspected to be the cause of
- pelvic inflammatory disease
- ectopic pregnancy
- postpartum fever
- endometritis inflammation of uterus
- neonatal infections
- respiratory distress
- abscesses, and congenital
- pneumonia, which occurs a few hours after birth.
- lung infections
- central nervous system infections
- other respiratory tract infections
- joint infection, and wound infections
A few weeks after contracting Mycoplasma hominis infections it causes in men and women:
- Painful urination
Strange unusual discharges, often foul smelling.
Each species cause different symptoms and can vary widely. Some infect specific parts or systems of the body. Here are some examples of what these can cause.
- Kidney infection
- Surgical wound infections
- Infectious arthritis/septic arthritis
- Disorders of the eye and ear
- Periodontal disease and gingivitis
- Crohn’s Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrom

Chlamydial infections can cause disease in many organ systems, including the genitourinary tract. Chlamydiae are small gram-negative obligate intracellular microorganisms that preferentially infect squamocolumnar epithelial cells. They include the genera Chlamydia (of which the type species is Chlamydia trachomatis(sexually transmited) and Chlamydophila (eg, Chlamydophila pneumoniae(respiratory droplets) and Chlamydophila psittaci(spread by bird droppings and aerosols.)
