چکیده
Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a leading cause of serious neonatal infections. Although gr eat progr ess has been made in preventing prenatal GBS, its colonization rate in different re-gions of Iran remains unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the colonization rate of GBS in pregnant women in Hamadan city, Central west of Iran. A group of 544 pregnant women wer e randomly selectedafter 20 weeks gesta-tion. Vaginal specimens wer e examined by Gram staining and culture methods and GBS was identified using bacteriologic criteria. Of these cases, 145 (26.7%) wer e colonized by GBS A significant relationship was found between the career of subjects and the related colonization rate. Parity, gestational age, and the number of children wer e unr elated to GBS colo-nization. The results are indicating that the r elatively high colonization rate of GBS in pregnant women living in Central west of Iran, warrants a routine scr eening and prophylactic treatment of the infected women.
