If you have had strep throat, or got it while you were pregnant, it does not mean that you have GBS. Relative expression levels were determined by normalizing reaction threshold cycles C T to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.

This study was performed in accordance with the ethical standards of the University of Alabama committee on human experimentation and the Helsinki Declaration.

In some cells, morphological rearrangements in uroepithelial cell actin architecture, to which GBS had bound, indicated that binding of UPGBS to unknown cell surface receptors on bladder uroepithelium may induce intracellular actin assembly cf Figure 1A—1C. There is no way to avoid getting GBS. You Are Here: You have had urinary tract infections that were caused by GBS. Testing positive for GBS does not mean you will have it forever.
