Award Description: The transmission of group B streptococcus from colonized women to their newborns during labor can be attenuated by treating women with intravenous antibiotic during labor. Current protocols from the CDC direct invasive testing and intensified surveillance of newborns born to women who were exposed to less than 4 hours of such treatment, despite the absence of evidence that this group of infants is at higher risk for GBS sepsis. The results of this study will be important in shaping early-onset GBS disease prevention protocols to minimize unnecessary interventions and to appropriately direct resources to those infants truly at risk for GBS disease.
