Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Diagnostic test accuracy). The objectives are as follows:

The primary objective is to compare the diagnostic accuracy of commercially available real‐time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and antenatal culture tests for diagnosing group B Streptococcus (GBS) colonisation in pregnant women during labour.
