Forty patients with cervical infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis were treated with ofloxacin (20) or doxycycline (20). Ofloxacin was successful in eradicating C. trachomatis from all 20 (100%) patients. Doxycycline was effective in 18 or 20 (90%) patients. Three patients had a concomitant cervical gonococcal infection. All three were successfully treated: one with ofloxacin and two with doxycycline. Ofloxacin, 300 mg, taken twice daily for 7 days, is effective in eradicating endocervical C. trachomatis infection.
