Screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria in adults: updated evidence report and systematic review for the US Preventive Services Task Force.
Investigators systematically reviewed the benefits and harms of asymptomatic bacteriuria screening and treatment in adults, including during pregnancy, to inform the US Preventive Services Task Force. They found that screening and treatment for asymptomatic bacteriuria during pregnancy was associated with reduced rates of pyelonephritis and low birth weights, while benefits of asymptomatic bacteriuria treatment in nonpregnant adult populations were not found. Trial evidence was limited.
