Cranberry Juice for Preventing Bacteria in Urine During Pregnancy

2014-07-23 21:51:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of cranberry juice that is most effective in preventing a condition in pregnant women that often leads to urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Description

Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) infection, a condition in which a large number of bacteria are present in the urine, often precedes the development of symptomatic UTIs. UTIs are common among women and may create complications during pregnancy. By incorporating cranberry juice into their diets, pregnant women may be able to lower their risk for UTIs caused by ASB, and cranberry juice may also prevent preterm labor and birth. This study will determine the cranberry juice-containing regimen that will work best for preventing ASB in pregnant women.

For the duration of their pregnancy, participants in this study will be randomly assigned to one of three treatment arms: cranberry juice once a day, cranberry juice three times a day, or a placebo beverage three times a day. The level of bacteria in their urine will be measured at monthly study visits. Women who test positive for a UTI will receive oral antibiotic therapy. All women will be monitored throughout their pregnancies for UTIs and other related complications.
