    Group B streptococcus (GBS) is one of the leading causes of invasive infections in neonates. 1 Early-onset GBS disease within the first 6 days of life may be related to vertical transmission from the mother to the infant, and intrapartum antimicrobial prophylaxis could be effective to reduce the early-onset disease. 2 However, the transmission route of late-onset disease between 7 days and 3 months Author: Yoon-Joo Kim, Young Mi Yoon, Young Ree Kim, Sang Taek Heo, Jeong Rae Yoo, Keun Hwa Lee, Jae Hong Cho. PREVENTION OF PERINATAL GROUP B STREPTOCOCCAL INFECTION DEFINITION Early onset of neonatal Group B streptococcal (GBS) infection is still a leading cause of infectious mortality and morbidity among newborns. Between % of pregnant women are colonized with GBS in the vagina or rectum and could transmit the infection during labor and delivery.

    Group B streptococcal infection, also known as Group B streptococcal disease or just Group B strep, is the infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) (also known as group B streptococcus or GBS). GBS infection can cause serious illness and sometimes death, especially in newborns, the elderly, and people with compromised immune lty: Pediatrics.   Causes. Bacteria called group B Streptococcus (group B strep, GBS) commonly live in people’s gastrointestinal and genital tracts. The gastrointestinal tract is the part of the body that digests food and includes the stomach and intestines. The genital tract is the part of the body involved in reproduction and includes the vagina in women.

Group B streptococci are a major cause of perinatal infections, including bacteremia, endometritis, intra-amniotic infection (formerly called chorioamnionitis), and urinary tract infections in women during pregnancy and immediately postpartum, and of systemic and focal infections in neonates.

Based on the First International Symposium on Neonatal Group B Streptococcal Infections, held at the University of Lund, Sweden, Aug.and arranged by the Departments of Medical Microbiology and Obstetrics and Gynecology of the University.

INTRODUCTION. Group B Streptococcus (GBS or Streptococcus agalactiae) is gram-positive diplococcus that Neonatal Group B Streptococcal Infections book a common colonizer of the gastrointestinal and genital tracts. GBS colonization in pregnant women is generally asymptomatic.

However, maternal colonization is the primary risk factor for GBS infection in neonates and young infants [ 1,2 ]. The differences in neonatal GBS transmission rates resulting from universal versus risk-based screening in Winnipeg require universal screening of many women for results to become apparent.

Universal screening and antibiotic prophylaxis of all GBS carriers result in increased antibiotic exposure in. Published: 28 May Perinatal/Neonatal Case Book. Late-Onset Group B Streptococcal Infection in Identical Twins: Insight to Disease Pathogenesis.

Group B streptococcal (GBS) infection remains the most common cause of neonatal early-onset sepsis and a significant cause of late-onset sepsis among young infants.

Organism. Streptococcus agalactiae, or group B Streptococcus (GBS), was first recognized as a distinct entity in the s by Rebecca Lancefield, who used immunologic typing of carbohydrate antigens as a means to classify streptococci.

The pathogen Streptococcus agalactiaerepresents group B Streptococcus(GBS). The commonly used term of group B streptococcus or GBS is based on Lancefield grouping that takes into account specific cell wall carbohydrate antigen.

Group B Streptococcus (GBS; Streptococcus agalactiae) is an important pathogen for newborns and is one of the most common causes of neonatal infection worldwide. Defining the contribution of GBS to other important and common neonatal conditions, such as NE, is important to fully understand the global burden of GBS in pregnant women and infants Cited by: Group B streptococcus (GBS) is the most common cause of neonatal infection in North America and is associated with morbidity and mortality.

Prompt recognition and treatment of the infection is imperative. Diagnostic tests and treatment options vary, without clear research-based recommendations. Future trends should focus on GBS infection as a public health issue, with an emphasis on by: Group B streptococcus (strep) is a type of bacteria.

It can be found in the digestive tract, urinary tract, and genital area of adults. About 1 in 4 pregnant women carry GBS in their rectum or vagina. During pregnancy, the mother can pass the infection to the baby. The fetus can get GBS during pregnancy. Newborns can get it from the mother's genital tract during delivery.

Maternal charts were audited for history of prenatal GBS screening, GBS status, clinical risk factors for neonatal GBS transmission, and use of intrapartum antibiotics to prevent neonatal GBS infection.
