Abstract

We evaluated Chlamydia pneumoniae seroprevalence in a population of 59 HIV positive and 49 HIV negative intravenous drug-abusers and in 53 blood donors. Chlamydia pneumoniae seroprevalence was significantly higher (p <0.012) in HIV positive subjects (59%) than in both HIV negative (35%) and blood donors (36%). These data warrant further investigation on Chlamydia pneumoniae role in HIV patients.
