Abstract

Azithromycin, doxycycline, and rifampin, alone or in combination, were tested in vitro against Chlamydia pneumoniae AR-39. The combination of azithromycin plus rifampin showed the strongest activity and produced higher rates of eradication of C. pneumoniae from lung tissues than azithromycin alone in experimental mouse pneumonitis.
