  1. Prevalence of Group B streptococcal colonization in pregnant third trimester women in Trinidad.

    Article - En anglais

    A study of colonization by group B streptococcus was conducted in 204 pregnant women in their third trimester.

    Positive cultures were obtained from vaginal and rectal swabs in 64 (31.4%) of these women.

    No significant differences in colonization rates were noted on the basis of ethnicity (race) and gravidity.

    However, there was a significant difference in the rate of colonization of vagina and rectum.

    Fifty-two (25.5%) women had positive isolates from vaginal swabs compared with 26 (12.7%) women with positive rectal isolates (P<0.05).

    There was a significant trend of increasing prevalence with increasing age.

    Colonization was not significantly greater in multigravid than in primigravid women.
