characterization of group b streptococci recovered from infants with invasive disease in england and b streptococci (gbs) are a major cause of invasive disease in infants, with enhanced surveillance in england and wales showing an incidence of 0.74 cases per 1000 live births and a mortality rate of 8%. among 353 isolates obtained during enhanced surveillance, the predominant serotypes were iii (48%), ia (27%), and v (10%), and the remainder comprised ib, ii, iv, vi, and vii; 3% were not typable. isolates from patients with early-onset disease had serotypes iii (38%), ia (32%), and v (13%) ...200415127328

distribution of serovariants of group b streptococci in isolates from england and norway.the distribution of capsular polysaccharide antigen (cho) types, surface-exposed c proteins alpha (c alpha) and beta (c beta) and an r-protein antigen was examined in 334 group b streptococci (gbs) isolates from three groups of patients hospitalised in england and wales or norway. the isolates were from 108 carriers, 67 cases of neonatal infection and 154 cases of adult infection. each group contained all cho types (ia, ib, ii, iii, iv, v and nt); type iii strains predominated except in the adul ...19957707331
neonatal meningitis in england and wales: a review of routine national data.the objective of this study was to describe trends in neonatal meningitis in england and wales during the years 1975-91. laboratory reports and, for the years 1983-91, data on statutory notifications and deaths from neonatal meningitis were reviewed. the mean annual total of laboratory reports of neonatal bacterial meningitis 1975-91 was 109 cases (range 69-133) with a slight upward trend apparent in the latter half of the study period. the mean annual number of reports of neonatal viral meningi ...19947979482

emerging trends in the epidemiology of invasive group b streptococcal disease in england and wales, 1991-2010.few cross-population studies examining the epidemiology of invasive group b streptococcal (gbs) disease have been undertaken. to identify longitudinal trends in the burden and characteristics of infections, national surveillance data on diagnoses in england and wales from 1991 to 2010 were analyzed.201323845950
