This updated review addresses the administration of antibiotics in women presenting with preterm labor and intact membranes as well as with bacterial vaginosis. 11 randomized controlled trials dealing with this question have been published since 1986. The results are disappointing. The probable reasons are the small number of patients in the different studies and universal use of antibiotics without performing amniocentesis to isolate the organisms involved.
