The aim of the study was to compare, using a proteomic approach, cervicovaginal fluid (CVF) proteins of women with bacterial vaginosis (BV) with those presenting normal microbiota.

Vitamin D-binding protein in cervicovaginal fluid as a non-invasive predictor of intra-amniotic infection and impending preterm delivery in women with preterm labor or preterm premature rupture of membranes.
To determine whether vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP) in cervicovaginal fluid (CVF) is independently predictive of intra-amniotic infection and imminent spontaneous preterm delivery (SPTD, delivery wi...
Some studies suggest that higher body mass index is associated with increased susceptibility to bacterial vaginosis (BV), but results are conflicting.
to describe the prevalence of bacterial vaginosis and factors associated among women who have sex with women.
We aimed to assess the correlations among multiple cytokine concentrations in the maternal plasma, cervicovaginal fluid (CVF), and amniotic fluid (AF) compartments in women with preterm premature rupt...
Lactobacilli, as normal vaginal flora, have a central role in controlling body environment and preventing the growth of pathogens. Sucrose, by promoting the growth of Lactobacilli, accelerates the sup...
The composition of a woman's vaginal microbiota has a significant impact on her reproductive tract health and general quality of life. Approximately one-third of all women currently have b...
Preterm delivery is a public health priority in Martinique, a French oversees territory located in the Caribbean, with a rate of 10,5% substantially higher than in Continental France (7,5%...
A non-randomized, interventional, longitudinal clinical study to quantify the impact of bacterial vaginosis treatment on HIV susceptibility and genital immunology in Kenyan women.
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.
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.
A species of Lactobacillus that occurs in the human GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT and the VAGINA of healthy women. It produces LACTIC ACID and HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, and is used as a PROBIOTIC. It is also used for the treatment and prevention 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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
