AbstractAs urinary tract infection (UTI) pathogens originate from the gut, we hypothesized that the gut environment reflected by intestinal microbiome influences the risk of UTI. Our prospective case-control study compared the intestinal microbiomes of 37 children with a febrile UTI with those of 69 healthy children. We sequenced the regions of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene and used the LefSe algorithm to calculate the size of the linear discriminant analysis (LDA) effect. We measured fecal lactoferrin and iron concentrations and quantitative PCR forEscherichia coli. At the phylum level, there were no significant differences...

This rapid review with practice recommendations on the treatment and prevention of recurrent lower urinary tract infections in women is timely as the number of women affected by this condition, especially the older group, is rapidly growing in all of our practices. The authors should be congratulated for their large and detailed search of the best available literature on this topic and for offering a succinct algorithm of the favored alternatives for rUTI prevention and treatment. Notably, a quick glance at reference 3 pointing out the lack of consensus in the definition of rUTIs, and at the quality rating (AMSTAR 2) colum...
