We investigated mother-to-newborn infant transmission of Lactobacillus species in Japanese by the typing of isolates from the vagina of pregnant women and stool specimens from their newborn infants. All infants were born by uncomplicated vaginal delivery and were basically fed breast milk. Lactobacillus strains were fingerprinted by arbitrarily primed polymerase chain reaction (AP-PCR), using ERIC1R and ERIC2 primers. Of 86 pregnant women tested, 71 (82.6%) were positive for vaginal… CONTINUE READING
