7                Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a bacterium that can be found in the gastrointestinal tract
8                and lower genital tract of some people. If GBS gets into the bloodstream it can cause a variety
9                of infections in normally sterile body sites (known as invasive infections), including bacteremia,
10                meningitis and pneumonia. GBS is the most common cause of life-threatening infections in newborns,
11                but can also cause invasive disease in pregnant women, older adults and those with chronic medical
12                conditions such as diabetes and liver disease. About half of the GBS cases among newborns happen
13                in the first week of life ("early-onset disease"), and most of these cases start a few hours after
14                birth. GBS disease may also develop in infants one week to several months after birth ("late-onset
15                disease"). Most early-onset disease in newborns can be prevented by giving pregnant women who carry
16                GBS antibiotics during labor. It is recommended that all pregnant women be screened for GBS carriage
17                during the 9th month of pregnancy.
