From: High prevalence of Group B Streptococcus colonization among pregnant women in Amman, Jordan

  GBS-negative subjects (n=157) GBS-positive subjects (n=39) p-value
Intrapartum antibiotics use, n (%)a 34 (23.1) 9 (23.1) 0.94

Rapid-positive for GBS, n (%) 53 (32.9) 14 (35.9) 0.72
  1. aMissing antibiotic data for 10 GBS-negative participants; total n for this sections = 190
  2. Multiple responses were possible for reason for antibiotic use; thus rows sum to greater than total
