The epidemiology and pathogenesis of trachoma

, : The epidemiology and pathogenesis of trachoma. Reviews in Medical Microbiology 3(2): 112-119

Trachoma remains the leading infectious cause of blindness. It is believed to afflict some 500 million people worldwide, of whom 7 million are blind as a consequence. The causative agent, Chlamydia trachomatis (serotypes A-C), is spread from eye to eye under conditions of poor hygiene; repeated reinfection results in scarring of the conjunctiva which may lead to corneal trauma and hence blindness.

The double prodrug, ximelagatran, is bioconverted, via the intermediates ethylmelagatran and N-hydroxymelagatran, to the direct thrombin inhibitor, melagatran. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the hepatic metabolism and disposition...
