BackgroundUreaplasma urealyticum and U. parvum have been associated with respiratory diseases in premature newborns, but their role in the pathogenesis of the respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is unclear. The aim of this study was to detect, using molecular techniques, the role of Mycoplasma spp. and Ureaplasma spp. in respiratory secretion and blood specimens of preterm newborns with or without RDS and to evaluate the prevalence of perinatal U. urealyticum or U. parvum infection.

DETECTION OF UREAPLASMA SPECIES IN ENDOTRACHEAL ASPIRATES FROM PRETERM INFANTS WITH RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME
Introduction: Respiratory distress remains the most common cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. Ureaplasma urealyticum and U. parvum have been associated with respiratoryExpand
[Evaluation of vertical transmission of two species of ureaplasmas in term newborns without respiratory disorders--a preliminary study].
TLDR
The preliminary observations may suggest that this species of ureaplasmas is probably more likely to be transferred from mother to child than U. urealyticum, which may be more frequently transferred from the genital tract ofMother to child. Expand
Placental Infection With Ureaplasma species Is Associated With Histologic Chorioamnionitis and Adverse Outcomes in Moderately Preterm and Late-Preterm Infants.
TLDR
Ureaplasma species were the most prevalent microorganisms, and their presence alone was associated with histologically confirmed chorioamnionitis in moderate/late preterm and term placentae (P < .001). Expand
Neonatal Ureaplasma urealyticum colonization increases pulmonary and cerebral morbidity despite treatment with macrolide antibiotics
TLDR
UU was found to be significantly associated with pulmonary short- and long-term morbidity and mild cerebral impairment despite treatment with macrolide antibiotics. Expand
Mycoplasma Duo Test Versus Conventional Culture Media for Detection Of Ureaplasma In Endotracheal Aspirates From Respiratory Distressed Premature Neonates
This work aimes to evaluate the Mycoplasma Duo kit as a rapid method for detection of ureaplasma in endotracheal aspirate samples from respiratory distressed premature neonates compared toExpand
Evaluation of Urease Activity by the Human Ureaplasma Species
TLDR
High ammonia levels observed after inoculation of human cells with U. urealyticum suggest higher activity of the urease of this species and may indicate a higher pathogenicity ofThis species particularly for the human respiratory tract. Expand
Lethal Neonatal Respiratory Failure by Perinatal Transmission of Ureaplasma Parvum after Maternal PPROM.
TLDR
Vaginal microbiome analysis may allow individualized and targeted maternal and fetal diagnostic, prophylactic and therapeutic strategies to identify, protect and treat the high-risk neonates after PPROM. Expand
Epidemiology and Antibiotic Susceptibility Patterns of Mycoplasma sp. and Ureaplasma urealyticum
TLDR
Overall major trends from both collection periods were that the prevalence of Ureaplasma spp. Expand
Mycoplasma/Ureaplasma infection in pregnancy: to screen or not to screen
TLDR
Mycoplasma genitalium is now recognized as a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that is involved in the causation of cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease in non-pregnant, and preterm birth and miscarriages in pregnant women, irrespective of the presence of concurrent other STIs, like Chlamydia or gonorrhoea. Expand
The Effect of Macrolide Therapy on Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Ureaplasma-Positive Very Low Birth Weight Infants
TLDR
Although Urea plasma has no independent role in the development of BPD, Ureaplasmapositive VLBW infants were more likely to have RDS and SNI and the macrolides administered in Urea Plasma-positive infants was not effective to reduce neonatal morbidities. Expand

Detection of Ureaplasma urealyticum by polymerase chain reaction in the urogenital tract of adults, in amniotic fluid, and in the respiratory tract of newborns.
TLDR
PCR primers tested indicate that PCR is equal to if not more sensitive than culture for detection of U. urealyticum in the adult urogenital tract, amniotic fluid, and endotracheal aspirates of newborns. Expand
Role of Ureaplasma urealyticum in lung disease of prematurity
AIM To examine the role of Ureaplasma urealyticum colonisation or infection in neonatal lung disease. METHODS Endotracheal aspirates from ventilated infants less than 28 weeks of gestation wereExpand
CHRONIC UREAPLASMA UREALYTICUM AND MYCOPLASMA HOMINIS INFECTIONS OF CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM IN PRETERM INFANTS
TLDR
It is shown that U urealyticum and M hominis are the most common microorganisms isolated from the CSF of newborn infants in a high-risk population. Expand
Patterns of colonization with Ureaplasma urealyticum during neonatal intensive care unit hospitalizations of very low birth weight infants and the development of chronic lung disease.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the risk of developing CLD varies with the pattern of U urealyticum colonization, and only the persistently positive colonization pattern was associated with a significantly increased risk of development of CLD. Expand
Mycoplasmas and Ureaplasmas as Neonatal Pathogens
TLDR
This review summarizes the epidemiology of genital mycoplasmas as causes of neonatal infections and premature birth; evidence linking ureaplasmas with bronchopulmonary dysplasia; recent changes in the taxonomy of the genus Ureaplasma; the neonatal host response to Mycoplasma and urea plasma infections; advances in laboratory detection, including molecular methods; and therapeutic considerations for treatment of systemic diseases. Expand
Ureaplasma urealyticum colonization and bronchopulmonary dysplasia: a comparative prospective multicentre study
TLDR
Ureaplasma urealyticum colonization is as an important risk factor in the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia as bacterial colonization even after treatment with surfactant. Expand
Biovar diversity of Ureaplasma urealyticum in amniotic fluid: distribution, intrauterine inflammatory response and pregnancy outcomes
TLDR
The “parvo biovar” is more frequently isolated from amniotic fluid of preterm gestations than the “T960 biovars”, and biavar diversity of U. urealyticum in amniotics fluid was not associated with different pregnancy outcome and magnitude of the intraamniotic inflammatory response. Expand
Pulmonary Ureaplasma urealyticum Is Associated with the Development of Acute Lung Inflammation and Chronic Lung Disease in Preterm Infants
TLDR
The data suggest that U. urealyticum colonization is associated with the development of pulmonary inflammation in infants who subsequently develop chronic lung disease. Expand
Maternal genital colonization with Ureaplasma urealyticum promotes preterm delivery: association of the respiratory colonization of premature infants with chronic lung disease and increased mortality.
TLDR
The rate of vertical transmission is highest among preterm infants with a birth weight of <1500 g and colonization of the respiratory tract of infants is associated with the development of CLD and with increased mortality. Expand
Association of Ureaplasma urealyticum colonization with chronic lung disease of prematurity: results of a metaanalysis.
TLDR
This metaanalysis supports a significant association between U. urealyticum colonization and subsequent development of chronic lung disease of prematurity and a randomized, controlled trial showing a reduction in CLD through the use of an antibiotic effective against this agent would provide further support of a causative role for this agent.
