Screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria can identify patients for whom treatment might be beneficial for preventing symptomatic infection and other health outcomes.
During routine post-kidney transplant care, most European transplant physicians screen patients for asymptomatic bacteriuria. The usefulness of this strategy is debated. To make screening cost-effecti...
Asymptomatic bacteriuria is a bacterial infection of the urine without any of the typical symptoms that are associated with a urinary infection, and occurs in 2% to 15% of pregnancies. If left untreat...
Among the general adult population, women (across all ages) have the highest prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria, although rates increase with age among both men and women. Asymptomatic bacteriuria...
This study is evaluating whether screening of a pregnant woman for asymptomatic bacteriuria in each trimester for early detection and treatment of bacteriuria will reduce the incidence of ...
The Bacteriuria in Renal Transplantation (BiRT) Study: A Trial Comparing Antibiotics Versus no Treatment in the Prevention of Symptomatic Urinary Tract Infection in Kidney Transplant Recipients With Asymptomatic Bacteriuria
The purpose of this study is to compare antibiotics versus no-treatment in kidney transplant recipients with asymptomatic bacteriuria.
This is a prospective randomized controlled day comparing the efficacy of three-day antimicrobial treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in pregnancy to the standard seven-day treatme...
The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy has been reported in the range of 2-15%. Due to the severity of the complications related to asymptomatic bacteriuria in this pat...
Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is defined as the presence of at least 105 colony-forming units (CFU)/ml of 1 or 2 bacterial species in clean-voided midstream urine sample from an individua...
The presence of bacteria in the urine which is normally bacteria-free. These bacteria are from the URINARY TRACT and are not contaminants of the surrounding tissues. Bacteriuria can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Significant bacteriuria is an indicator of urinary tract infection.
Examination of urine by chemical, physical, or microscopic means. Routine urinalysis usually includes performing chemical screening tests, determining specific gravity, observing any unusual color or odor, screening for bacteriuria, and examining the sediment microscopically.
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
Testing or screening required by federal, state, or local law or other agencies for the diagnosis of specified conditions. It is usually limited to specific populations such as categories of health care providers, members of the military, and prisoners or to specific situations such as premarital examinations or donor screening.
The presence of white blood cells (LEUKOCYTES) in the urine. It is often associated with bacterial infections of the urinary tract. Pyuria without BACTERIURIA can be caused by TUBERCULOSIS, stones, or cancer.
