Just a quick note to say hi! Hello. And welcome to the Chlamydia forum. Good luck on your studies. The CDC has always been formost in its recommendations for Infectious disease treatment. I have not personally talked with anyone recently in their STD department. I do feel that the sulfa antibiotics have been removed from the first line treatment of Chlamydia because of some reported resistent strains. There are really no good studies on treatment of genital infections of chlamydia with sulfa to show its effectiveness. And yes I agree, it was used extensively for this treatment since its discovery in the 1930s. Also remember that chlamydia infections and gonorrhea are often paired in the same patient. Gonorrhea has a high resistence rate to sulfa.
