There's suprisingly little known about the pathogenesis of the
Chlamydiae, mostly because (1) they're hard to work with and (2) they're
hard to work with. Here are a couple of refs, 'tho:
First, what seems to be an ok review (I'm no expert...)
Dan Med Bull 39: 304-320 (1992) 
The molecular biology and diagnostics of Chlamydia trachomatis.
Second, a couple of papers that were in my desk droor:
Infect Immun 59: 4001-4012 (1991) 
Recombinant Escherichia coli clones expressing Chlamydia trachomatis
products attach to human endometrial epithelial cells.
D. H. Schmiel, S. T. Knight, J. E. Raulston, J. Choong, C. H. Davis & P.
J Gen Microbiol 136: 1623-1629 (1990) 
Extensive heterogeneity of the protein composition of Chlamydia
following serial passage in two different cell lines.
P. C. Goswami, E. Vretou & S. K. Bose
Some very good work has come out of P. Wyrick's group. You might run a
lit search and see what they've published more recently.
Good luck on your paper. Hope these help.
