Some studies suggest that higher body mass index is associated with increased susceptibility to bacterial vaginosis (BV), but results are conflicting.
Bacterial vaginosis (BV), the leading cause of vaginal discharge, is associated with multiple adverse health outcomes; however, its etiology is unknown. BV treatment is not very effective, thus prevention approaches are needed. Studies investigating the impact of vitamin D on the risk of BV have had mixed findings, including two studies reporting increased risk of recurrent BV for women with higher vitamin D.
Metronidazole-resistant Bacteroides fragilis (B. fragilis) have been reported worldwide. Several mechanisms contribute to B. fragilis resistance to metronidazole. In some cases, the mechanisms of metronidazole resistance are unknown. Understanding the mechanisms of resistance is important for therapy, the design of new alternative drugs, and control of resistant strains. In this study, a comprehensive review of the B. fragilis resistance mechanisms to metronidazole was prepared. The rate of metronidazole-re...
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) and vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) present serious reproductive health risks and management challenges, with poor control attributed to survival of treatment-resistant biofilm communities. Boric acid is used in various regimens for non-albicans VVC and recurrent BV. We investigated safety and efficacy of a novel boric acid-based vaginal anti-infective with enhanced antibiofilm activity (TOL-463) in treating BV and VVC.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as phthalates, are an unexamined potential risk factor for bacterial vaginosis (BV) and warrant investigation because hormones affect BV. We examined the association between phthalate exposure and BV in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2001-2004. BV outcomes were defined as intermediate (Nugent score of 4-6) and positive (7-10). Phthalate metabolites, including monoethyl phthalate (MEP), mono-n-butyl phthalate (MnBP), and di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (...
Bacterial vaginosis is a genital tract infection, thought to be caused by transformation of a lactobacillus-rich flora to a dysbiotic microbiota enriched in mixed anaerobes. The most prominent of these is Gardnerella vaginalis (GV), an anaerobic pathogen that produces sialidase enzyme to cleave terminal sialic acid residues from human glycans. Notably, high sialidase activity is associated with preterm birth and low birthweight. We explored the potential of the sialidase inhibitor Zanamavir against GV whole...
A 70-year-old man with a history of hepatic cirrhosis presented with abdominal discomfort and distention. Physical examination revealed abdominal distention, positive fluid wave and abdominal tenderness. Due to concerns for spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP), paracentesis was performed. Fluid analysis revealed 5371 total nucleated cells with 48% neutrophils. Ceftriaxone was then initiated for the treatment of SBP. Bacterial cultures of the fluid, however, grew Therefore, metronidazole was added. An ab...

In this paper, metronidazole, a known compound with microbicide effect, was incorporated in Langmuir monolayers of selected phospholipids in order to investigate the interactions of this compound with cell membrane models by using tensiometric, spectroscopic and morphological techniques. Surface pressure-area isotherms showed that selected amounts of metronidazole condense DPPC monolayers, but expand DPPE monolayers. Vibrational spectroscopy pointed that metronidazole adsorbs on the polar heads of the phosp...
The aim of this non-interventional, observational, multicentre, open-label study was to assess the effectiveness of a vaginal gel containing extracts of Thymus vulgaris and Eugenia caryophyllus in conjunction with two specific lactobacilli strains (Lactobacillus fermentum LF10 and Lactobacillus plantarum LP02) specifically formulated in slow-release vaginal capsules, in treating bacterial vaginosis (BV), vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) or recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis disease (RVVC) [Estromineral Probio...
To characterize the lipid profile in vaginal discharge of women with vulvovaginal candidiasis, cytolytic vaginosis, or no vaginal infection or dysbiosis.
Metronidazole is a benzimidazole derivative with antibacterial and antiprotozoal activity. Despite its therapeutic efficacy, several studies have been developing new imidazole derivatives with lower toxicity. Considering that drug-membrane interactions are key factors for drugs pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties, the aim of this work is to provide new insights into the structure-toxicity relationships of metronidazole within phosphatidylcholine membranes. For that purpose, lipid membrane models ...
To evaluate an antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) initiative to change hospital prescribing practice for metronidazole.
Acquired resistance to metronidazole, a 5-nitroimidazole drug largely used worldwide in the empirical treatment of infections caused by anaerobes, is worrisome, especially since such resistance has been described in multidrug-resistant anaerobic bacteria. In anaerobes, acquired resistance to metronidazole may be due to a combination of various and complex mechanisms. Among them, nim genes, possibly located on mobile genetic elements, encode nitro-imidazole-reductases responsible for drug inactivation. Since...
Background - Metronidazole is a synthetic antibiotic, which has been commonly used for protozoal and anaerobic infections. It rarely causes dose - and duration - unrelated reversible neurotoxicity. It can induce hyperintense T2/FLAIR MRI lesions in several areas of the brain. Although the clinical status is catastrophic, it is completely reversible after discontinuation of the medicine. Case report - 36-year-old female patient who had recent brain abscess history was under treatment of metronidazole for 40 ...
An ultra-performance liquid-chromatography mass-spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method for simultaneous quantitation of metronidazole and 2-hydroxymetronidazole in human plasma was developed and validated. Metronidazole and 2-hydroxymetronidazole were extracted from a small volume of human plasma (10 μL) by hydrophilic lipophilic balanced solid phase extraction on 96-well μ-elution plates. Chromatographic separation of analytes was achieved on an Acquity UPLC BEH C18 column (1.7 μm, 2.1 × 100 mm) us...
Metronidazole is traditionally dosed every 6-8 hours even though in adults it has a long half-life, concentration-dependent killing, and 3-hour postantibiotic effect. Based on this logic, some pediatric hospitals adopted once-daily dosing for appendicitis, despite limited pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) in children. We studied pediatric patients with appendicitis given metronidazole once daily to determine whether this dosing would meet target area under the curve (AUC)/minimum inhibitory concentr...
Post-operative pain is a major issue following excisional haemorrhoidectomy. Although metronidazole by both oral and topical administration routes has been shown to reduce pain after haemorrhoidectomy, its use remains a contentious issue. This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to investigate the effect of metronidazole on post-operative pain after excisional haemorrhoidectomy.
Metronidazole (MNZ) is a common antibiotic that exerts disulfiram-like effects when taken together with alcohol. However, the relationship between MNZ and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) activity remains unclear. This study investigated whether MNZ reduces cancer stemness by suppressing ALDH activity and accordingly reducing the malignancy of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA).
A series of 22 novel metronidazole-triazole-styryl hybrids were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antiamoebic activity against HM1: IMSS strain of Entamoeba histolytica. Some of the hybrids were found to be more active (IC = 0.12-0.35 μM) than the reference drug metronidazole (IC = 1.79 μM). The most active compounds were found to be non-toxic (up to 50 μM) against the Vero cells showing a good safety profile of these hybrids. The docking and ADMET studies were also conducted to...
An ultrasensitive electrochemical sensor based on polydopamine/carboxylic multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs-COOH) nanocomposites modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was presented in this work, which has been developed for highly selective and highly sensitive determination of an antimicrobial drug, metronidazole. The preparation of polydopamine/MWCNTs-COOH nanocomposites/GCE sensor is simple and possesses high reproducible, where polydopamine can be coated on the surface of MWCNTs-COOH via a simple e...
Bacterial vaginosis involves the presence of a polymicrobial biofilm on the vaginal epithelium, guaranteeing immune escape and spread of antibiotic resistance. To spot known biofilm-forming bacteria, we profiled the vaginal microbiome of sixty-four symptomatic women suffering from a different grade of vaginal disorders and sixty asymptomatic healthy women. Specific microbial profiles distinguished symptomatic from asymptomatic women and characterized the grade of dysmicrobism within the symptomatic group. L...
Metronidazole is a drug of choice for amebic liver abscess (ALA), but has long course and significant side effects. Thus, drugs like tinidazole with a better tolerability record need evaluation.
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of 0.2% polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) to 0.8% metronidazole on malignant wound (MW) odor, health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and pain upon application.
