  1. Vaginal colonization by Escherichia coli as a risk factor for very low birth weight delivery and other perinatal complications.

    Article - En anglais

    This study evaluated the relationship of vaginal Escherichia coli colonization to birth weight<1500 g and other perinatal complications in a cross-sectional study of 2646 women at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, between October 1992 and January 1995.

    Vaginal E. coli colonization was more strongly associated with delivery at<34 weeks (relative risk [RR], 1.7 ; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.3-2.3) and very low birth weight (RR, 1.9 ; 95% CI, 1.3-2.7) than with prematurity between 34 and 36 weeks or low birth weight.

    Heavy growth of E. coli had a higher risk of very low birth weight than light growth (RR, 2.4 ; 95% Cl, 1.0-6.2).

    It may be important to screen and treat pregnant women for genital tract colonization with E. coli during prenatal care.
