[Bacterial spectrum of the urine in young healthy women].
Urologiia (Moscow, Russia : 1999)
A wide spectrum of aerobic-anaerobic associations were found at bacteriological examination of 138 samples of the middle urine portion from 46 healthy women aged 17-25 years (22 sexually inactive and 24 active). Facultative-anaerobic (corinebacteria and coagulase-negative staphylococci) and non-clostridial anaerobic bacteria (peptococci and propionibacteria) predominated in both groups. The majority of facultative anaerobic bacteria had marked adhesive and antilysosyme activity indicating a pathogenic potential. Experimental and clinical trials are necessary to study the role of non-clostridial-anaerobic bacteria in development of acute and chronic infections of the kidney and urinary tract.
