The findings in the present study provide new insights into the mechanisms bridging innate and adaptive immunity during lung chlamydial infections, which may have implications in developing effective chlamydial vaccines and in the understanding of host defense mechanisms in other lung infections.

That is why the search of new approaches to the treatment of chlamydial infections remains important.
Antibodies of IgG2a isotype mediate effector functions, including antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), with evidence suggesting that this effector function facilitates early clearance of chlamydial infections. Furthermore, ADCC is associated with enhanced antigen presentation, with the potential to amplify [CD4.sup.+] T cell responses [64].
Genital chlamydial infections are usually asymptomatic, and screening is necessary to identify most infections.
