Urinary tract infections in pregnant women


Urinary tract infections in pregnant women complicate the course of pregnancy. It is necessary to know not only the pathogen type but also to prescribe the safest antibiotics for adequate treatment of urinary tract infections.

The prevalence of urinary tract infections in pregnant women was 22.5%. E. coli was the most common causative agent of urinary tract infections in pregnant women. High antibacterial activity was registered in cephalosporins, fosfomycin, and nitrafurantoin.

These are the findings from a new research paper. The reference is:

Lavrinenko, A., Tishkambayevi, Y., Serbo, Y., Shambilova, N., Azizov, I., Sandle, T., Gyurka, A. and Chesca, A. (2016) Prevalence of urinary Tract Infections in Pregnant Women, Archives of the Balkan Medical Union, 15 (3): 307-310
