Several studies have reported an antimicrobial activity of cathelicidin peptides against bacteria, fungi, protozoa. Since chlamydia sensitivity to cathelicidin peptides has not been systematically tested, we comparatively analysed the activity of six cathelicidins against 35 strains of chlamydiae of human and animal origin. The present study shows a different susceptibility of chlamydia species to cathelicidin peptides.

Abstract

Several studies have reported an antimicrobial activity of cathelicidin peptides against bacteria, fungi, protozoa. Since chlamydia sensitivity to cathelicidin peptides has not been systematically tested, we comparatively analysed the activity of six cathelicidins against 35 strains of chlamydiae of human and animal origin. The present study shows a different susceptibility of chlamydia species to cathelicidin peptides.
