• In the waters of the Oder present threat to humans and animals by the bacterium chlamydia environment – scientists of Szczecin University (USA).
• according to Professor Wieslaw Deptuły with US it must not become the reason for the ban of swimming or to go into the water.
we are Talking about bacteria of the family Simkaniaceae (government Chlamydiales), which is defined as chlamydię environment. Bacteria from this series as chlamydia classic, already known for 5 thousand years, but only 15-20 years ago were isolated in their group chlamydia the environment. Because of the wealth of environmental chlamydial infection of the environment is now bigger (in terms of a systematic) than classical chlamydia.
infection of the organism occurs when the organism is ingested. Gets and along with the air or through a wound.
As told the head of the Department of Microbiology US, Prof. dr hab. Egor Deptuła, information about chlamydia environment should not, however, mean the prohibition of bathing or to go into the water. “That must be taken into account health services, diagnostics and physicians, that the problem exists, and to bend over it”, – he stressed.
“Our message is that in the environment – in particular, in water there is bacteria potentially including humans and farm animals. Even contact with zarazkiem in its pure form does not mean mortal danger. However, it can make life difficult, lead to disease, even the respiratory tract or reproductive system,” – said the Professor. Deptuła.
he expects that over time the presence of chlamydial infection of the environment is also confirmed in other places.
As the press-Secretary of the US, Julia Poświatowska in a sent message, still it was observed that bacteria only in some countries – Austria, France, Spain, Israel and Germany.
a New potential factor is infectious to mammals, including human beings, she found in the waters of the Oder, Dr. Margaret the contrast between Warych from the Department of Microbiology of the United States, working under the guidance of Prof. Dr. hab. Catherine Deptuły. The discovery was made through the use of molecular biology techniques.
Professor Deptuła said that chlamydia environment should be in a special register, the so-called data Bank of micro-organisms. Follow-up studies (e.g., the presence of chlamydial infection environment of animals, such as pigeons or the study of the image of the immunity associated with his presence), they can be helpful in future diagnosis.
a spokesman of the University said that researchers from the U.S. – as the only in Poland – managed to say that bacteria (defined as OdraWCh30) in the river water.

“This is our ‘happiness’ is due to the fact that among the teams in Poland, working in chlamydiami, we have this unit which with the 80-ies. The twentieth century engaged them with a break,” explained the Professor. Deptuła.
Scientists from the USA examined chlamydia for a long time. “All the time we conduct research through which we want to demonstrate that chlamydia environment occur in the environment, including in water and in feces of birds, although we do not exclude that in mammals – humans and animals, which means that it is a serious problem. Our goal is the commissioning of the diagnostic process, consisting in the development of markers based on which it will be possible to recognize chlamydial infection of the environment. Because of this, we would have had a chance to eliminate the alleged source of many diseases caused by these microbes,” – said the Professor. Deptuła.
His team – as reminded the press-Secretary of the University – the first in Europe (in 1988) he proved also, that typical of people settles also Chlamydia trachomatis organisms, animals – cattle. These animals can be a source of human infection, on what nobody paid attention before. The researcher found these bacteria in semen fertilizer in the same period in Germany was shown to be the case in cattle in Calais and in England, five years later, it was discovered the presence of these chlamydial infections in pigs.
