prevalence of mastitis pathogens in herds participating in a mastitis control program.bacteriological data from herd surveys by the massachusetts mastitis laboratory were analyzed. comparisons of percent cows and quarters with major mastitis pathogens and types of bacteria isolated were between streptococcus agalactiae-positive (1105 cows from 17 herds) and streptococcus agalactiae-negative herds (1088 cows from 17 herds). major mastitis pathogens were isolated from 58.5% of cows and 37.0% quarters in streptococcus agalactiae-positive herds. the most frequently isolated bacteria ...19846389629

occult bacteremia with group b streptococci in an outpatient setting.we undertook this study to determine the relative frequency of occult bacteremia with group b streptococci (gbs) and to define the clinical features of infants with occult bacteremia attributable to gbs at the time of initial clinical contact.19989651415
type iv neonatal early-onset group b streptococcal disease in a united states b streptococcus (gbs) serotypes causing neonatal disease vary by geographic region. surveillance at the brigham and women's hospital in boston, massachusetts, revealed a case of neonatal early-onset sepsis caused by type iv gbs. neonatal type iv disease occurs in the middle east but has not recently been described in u.s. infants.200717267636
