Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Infants with low-risk deliveries should not need antibiotics at birth, study suggests

The findings could help clinicians tailor the use of early antibiotics in newborns. Only those deemed at risk for infection should receive antibiotics, thereby reducing unnecessary use.
