Project Details


This is a program project application for research in pelvic
inflammatory disease (PID) and Chlamydial infection. The project includes a Core and three research projects:
Specific chlamydia protein in PID sequelae; Consequences of
PID; and Evaluation of therapeutic regimens for treatment of
PID; Clinical response and microbiologic cure. The core brings
together clinical facilities (Reproductive Infectious Diseases,
SFGH; City Clinic, San Francisco; Adolescent Medicine, UCSF)
clinically and epidemiologically oriented investigations on pelvic
inflammatory disease, Chlamydia, N. gonorrhoeae infection, and
other STD organisms, and the STD Training Program. In turn,
these clinical and epidemiologic programs provide excellent
opportunities for collaboration with basic science research
activities of the Bay Area STD Research Program. The
integration of these research resources provides an environment
with an excellent balance between clinical and basic science
investigation. East of the research projects will make use of the
Core resources to enhance our understanding of pelvic
inflammatory disease and chlamydial infection.
