Medical Diagnostic Laboratories, L.L.C. Announces a Complimentary Reflex Test to Determine Azithromycin Resistance in Chlamydia Trachomatis
Date:9/11/2012

HAMILTON, N.J., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Diagnostic Laboratories, L.L.C. (MDL), a CLIA-certified infectious disease laboratory which specializes in high complexity, state-of-the-art, automated DNA-based molecular analyses, announced that it is now offering an azithromycin resistance reflex assay for Chlamydia trachomatis. MDL is believed to be the first and only clinical laboratory to offer the antibiotic resistance for this sexually transmitted pathogen. Drug resistance testing has become an essential tool to assist clinicians in the selection of appropriate drug regimens for effective treatment. The azithromycin resistance reflex assay for Chlamydia trachomatis will be performed at no additional charge when Chlamydia trachomatis is detected in a patient's specimen.

Chlamydia is the most frequently reported sexually transmitted disease in the United States and is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. In 2010, over 1.3 million chlamydial infections were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 50 states and the District of Columbia. Asymptomatic infection is very common in both men and women and can therefore "silently" cause irreversible damage before symptoms are experienced or a proper diagnosis is made. Left untreated, a chlamydial infection can spread to a woman's uterus and fallopian tubes, and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility.

To prevent the spread of the chlamydial infection and cure the patient, an effective treatment must be initiated as quickly as possible. Although most genital infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis are effectively treated with azithromycin, recent studies indicate that a subset of strains are resistant to this antibiotic. This detection of resistance of Chlamydia trachomatis to azithromycin is therefore important when choosing proper antibiotic therapy. MDL has deve
