Group B streptococcus
Group B streptococcus
• Group B streptococcus (GBS) bacteria are
found in the birth canal of approximately 40%
of pregnant women, and in some countries
(but not the UK) all pregnant women are
screened for GBS and those who are found
positive receive antibiotics during birth to
protect their baby
Group B streptococcus
• Studies evaluating the use of an
investigational GBS vaccine in pregnant
women have been conducted in Belgium and
South Africa; if successful such a vaccine might
provide an alternative approach to GBS
prevention.
COMPLETED CLINICAL RESEARCH
• o evaluate the attitudes of pregnant women,
obstetric health care workers and
neonatologists to:
• Vaccine prevention of GBS disease by
maternal immunisation
• Clinical trials of an investigational GBS vaccine
in pregnant women
COMPLETED CLINICAL RESEARCH
• From these studies, we have identified that pregnant
women and parents with experience of GBS were open
to the idea of an antenatal GBS vaccine and
participating in research. These groups were, if
anything, more positive than maternity health
professionals, suggesting an awareness campaign for
GBS immunisation would need to include health care
professionals.
