International Group B Strep Awareness Month
As a company that has been conducting numerous clinical trials in infectious diseases and women’s health, we want to spread awareness about the Group B Strep Throat Disease.
The disease mostly affects babies and is often transmitted from the mother through the digestive tract and birth canal. It can cause miscarriages, premature birth, lifelong handicaps or death in babies up to 6 months old. The symptoms can be very severe and include fever, lethargy, difficulty breathing and others.
By promoting awareness, we aim to prevent as many cases as possible.
