Host factors in susceptibility to urinary tract infections

Host factors in susceptibility to urinary tract infections

Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology 462: 351-358

In summary, a variety of intrinsic and acquired factors influence the risk of RUTI in otherwise normal women, including history of prior UTIs, the woman's genetic background, and exposures to spermicides, sexual activity and antibiotics. Further studies are directed towards understanding the interplay between these factors and their relative importance among various subpopulations of women with RUTI, such as otherwise healthy pre- and post-menopausal women.
