SummaryIn a preliminary study of the transmission rate of Ureaplasma urealytcium, Mycoplasma species, Gardnerella vaginalis, B-Streptococci, Candida species and Chlamydia trachomatis from the mother to the newborn, swabs were taken from 45 parturients and their neonates and cultured by suitable methods. Out of 30 parturients with a positive culture, 8 harboured more than one microorganism investigated. U. urealyticum was found in 11 newborn and all of them had a positive mother. Candida spp…

In a total of 200 children born at Würzburg University Gynecological Clinic, culture and in some cases microscopic investigations were performed in the first week of life to identify chlamydia
[Chlamydia trachomatis in the urogenital tract of pregnant women].
Prenatal patients from the Prenatal Clinic of the University of Würzburg cervical, vaginal and urethral swabs were taken for microscopic examination and culture for Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis, Candida species, Ureaplasma urealyticum and facultatively pathogenic and apathogenic aerobic bacteria.
Role of Chlamydia trachomatis in perinatal infection.
Evaluation of the contribution of C. trachomatis to maternal and fetal risk will require larger studies with evaluation of possible concurrent mycoplasmal infection.
Serological Typing of Ureaplasma urealyticum Isolates from Urethritis Patients by an Agar Growth Inhibition Method
A previously unknown association of U. urealyticum with frequently abacteriuric, unexplained pyuria (with or without urethral pruritus and dysuria) is reported, suggesting the existence of asymptomatic Ureaplasma urethritis.
Cervical Chlamydia trachomatis and mycoplasmal infections in pregnancy. Epidemiology and outcomes.
In a prospective study of chlamydial and mycoplasmal infections in pregnancy, IgM-seropositive C trachomatis-infected women had more low-birth-weight infants and more premature rupture of membranes than either IgM/IgM-negative C trachesmatis- Infected women or C trACHomatis culture-negative women, so certain subgroups of infected women may experience adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Chlamydia trachomatis infection in mothers and infants. A prospective study.
The incidence of chlamydia trachomatis infection of the cervix during pregnancy was found to be 18% in a group of 1,327 women attending the prenatal clinic of a large urban hospital. There were no
Group-B streptococcal infections.
Group B Streptococcus (GBS) has become the major cause of bacterial infections in the perinatal period, including bacteremia, amnionitis, endometritis, and urinary tract infection in pregnant women as well as focal and systemic infections in newborns.
Infant pneumonitis associated with cytomegalovirus, Chlamydia, Pneumocystis, and Ureaplasma: a prospective study.
The clinical, radiologic, and laboratory characteristics of the pneumonitis syndrome associated with Chlamydia, cytomegalovirus, and Pneumocystis were indistinguishable from each other.
Cultivation of Chlamydia trachomatis in cycloheximide-treated mccoy cells
In a study of 194 cervical and urethral specimens from women, cycloheximide treatment of McCoy cells was found to be more efficient than 5-iodo-2-deoxyuridine treatment for the isolation of C. trachomatis.
