OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate an intrapartum nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for group B streptococcus (GBS).

RESULTS GBS prevalence was 19.5% by antepartum culture and 23.8% by intrapartum culture. Compared with intrapartum culture, antepartum culture had 69.2% sensitivity (60.6-76.9%) and 96.0% specificity (93.7-97.7%). The NAAT… CONTINUE READING
