The inhibitory effects of hinokitiol (beta-thujaplicin) on Chlamydia trachomatis D/UW-3/Cx were shown by MIC, minimum lethal concentration (MLC), and preinoculation minimal microbicidal concentration assays using HeLa 229 cells. The MIC and the MLC were both 32 microg/ml. Further evaluation of hinokitiol as a topical agent against C. trachomatis is warranted.
