“Background Chlamydophila pneumoniae is an important human respiratory pathogen that causes laryngitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis and community acquired pneumonia  and has been associated
with exacerbation of asthma [2, 3], atherosclerosis [4–6], arthritis [2, 7], Alzheimer’s disease [8, 9] and Multiple Sclerosis [10–13]. The ability of C. pneumoniae to remain viable within lung macrophages [14–16] provides a mechanism for dissemination of Chlamydia to other anatomical sites that may include the arterial wall  and the brain. Rapid and successful treatment of C. pneumoniae respiratory infections is therefore important to ensure complete clearance of the bacteria in order to avoid infections elsewhere in the body. Antibiotics such as azithromycin, clarithromycin, erythromycin, and doxycycline have been used to treat C. pneumoniae respiratory infections . However, clinical isolates of Chlamydia resistant to azithromycin and erythromycin have been reported , and some chlamydial species including C. pneumoniae develop resistance to antibiotics in vitro [20–25].
