HPV and Chlamydia trachomatis co‐detection in young asymptomatic women from high incidence area for cervical cancer
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 07:35:25 +0100 | Journal of Medical Virology

An active screening for timely treatment of Chlamydia trachomatis infection is suggested in young females to evaluate a possible decrease in incidence of pre‐cancer intraepithelial lesions. J. Med.
