Supplementary Material

In Supplementary Figure 1, GBS (A-I), Enterococcus (J and K), or N. gonorrhoeae (L) were tested against sevaral commonly isolated cocolonizers. Test bacteria were diluted out, while competing organisms were held constant. In Supplemental Figure 2, GBS was shown to be sensitive to either cefazolin (A), clindamycin (B), or erythromycin (C) following a 6-hour incubation. Panels D and E show GBS resistance to clindamycin. Panel F shows Enterococcus, resistant to vancomycin. Finally, Panels G and H show N. gonorrhoeae resistant to penicillin or sensitive to ceftriaxone, respectively.
