abstract

  • High-titer immunoglobulin G antibody to Chlamydia trachomatis was associated with recurrent spontaneous abortions. The mechanism may involve reactivation of a latent chlamydial infection, endometrial damage from a past chlamydial infection, or an immune response to an epitope shared by a chlamydial and a fetal antigen.
