A study in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases that looked at 217 premature infants in a neonatal intensive care unit found three pathogens that may cause late-onset sepsis: group B Streptococcus, Serratia marcescens and Escherichia coli. They were found in seven of 11 sepsis patients before and after the infection, which suggest that they were sepsis-causing pathogens.
