Curing Koala Bears with Chlamydia May Lead To Human Cure

Koala Bears in Australia are currently being given special attention and are going to be a part of a few studies for STD research.  Over $800,000 will be spent to find out how many koalas with chlamydia in Queensland exist and to come up with a way to treat it.


The University of Queensland will receive $655,000 to study chlamydia in male koalas.  Also, the Queensland University of Technology will be given another $182,000 to aid in the development of a specific therapy to treat this sexually transmitted disease.

Hopefully this study will find a new treatment for chlamydia that can be used not only to save Koala Bears, but also to treat humans in the near future.
