Identification and Impact of Vaginal Flora Anomalies Among Pregnant Woman
This is a prospective multicentric study including six clinical units of Gynecology and Obstetrics (5 public health hospital and one private team), one research team in clinical microbiology and one Center of Clinical investigation (CIC).
There is a correlation between premature delivery and bacterial vaginosis. So, the anomalies of vaginal flora are a potential target for the campaign against prematurity.
The main objective of this study is to achieve an objective and reproducible technique of identification and quantification by molecular biology of lactobacilla and all the other micro-organisms involved in vaginal flora anomalies.
The secondary objectives are the exhaustive culture of bacteria, the characterisation of intermediate vaginal flora and bacterial vaginosis among pregnant woman by PCR targeting the ribosomic ADN 16S coupled with clonage techniques.
The number of patient to include is 1000 (time of inclusions: 24 months). The vaginal smears will be realized until 32 weeks of gestation (Max: 3 taking of vaginal smears by patient).
Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A genus of bacteria found in the human genital and urinary tract. It is considered to be a major cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL).
The only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.
A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. Its organisms are found in the human vagina, particularly in association with Gardnerella vaginalis in cases of bacterial vaginosis.
Polymicrobial, nonspecific vaginitis associated with positive cultures of Gardnerella vaginalis and other anaerobic organisms and a decrease in lactobacilli. It remains unclear whether the initial pathogenic event is caused by the growth of anaerobes or a primary decrease in lactobacilli.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
The principal hypothesis of this study is that HPV testing and/or p16 testing, either alone or in combination or associated with a Pap smear, will demonstrate greater specificity for clini...
This is a prospective, randomized, controlled and multi-center trial to assess the use of colposeptine in female subjects with bacterial vaginosis. A total of 480 patients are planned to b...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of GW05 administered in 3 regimens versus metronidazole 0.75% for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis.
This is a phase IIa clinical trial in women with bacterial vaginosis. This study will determine whether treatment with vaginal lactobacillus in combination with antibiotic therapy (metron...
This is a phase II multicenter randomized open-label clinical study that will determine whether treatment with Lactofiltrum (orally administered tablets) in combination with antibiotic the...
: Although bacterial vaginosis is a known correlate of HIV infection, no previous studies have investigated whether women defined as HIV-exposed seronegative (HESN) are less likely to have bacterial v...
