Trachoma prevalence remains below threshold in five districts after stopping mass drug administration: results of five surveillance surveys within a hyperendemic setting in Amhara, Ethiopia

In a trachoma hyperendemic region, a TF prevalence <5% was successfully maintained in five districts for ≥2 years after stopping MDA. MDA is still not warranted for these districts, however, the S, F and E components of the SAFE strategy should continue.

Longitudinal change in the serology of antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis pgp3 in children residing in a trachoma area

The aims of this study are to determine the rates of seroconversion, and seroreversion (if any), in connection with trachoma and infection in a random sample of children age 1–9 years over a one year period in 50 communities in Kongwa Tanzania, where trachoma was formerly hyper-endemic.

This article sets out to characterise patterns of gene expression at the conjunctivae of children in these provinces with and without clinical signs of trachomatous inflammation-follicular (TF) and C. trachomatis infection.
