The goal of this study is to examine acceptability and efficacy of 2 kinds of BV treatment among women at low risk for preterm delivery. The objectives are:
1. To examine the side effects and patient acceptability of oral versus intravaginal metronidazole.
2. To compare the efficacy of oral and intravaginal metronidazole for the treatment of BV
3. To study the efficacy of oral and intravaginal metronidazole for the prevention of hospital admission during the 3rd trimester, chorioamnionitis, preterm delivery, and maternal infectious morbidity.
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled intervention trial. Women diagnosed as BV+ by Gram stain at 12-16 weeks gestation are randomly assigned to the following treatment groups: oral metronidazole (250 mg TID x 7 days) with intravaginal placebo; intravaginal metronidazole (5g 0.75% gel BID x 5 days) with oral placebo. African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, and white women are eligible. Women with a prior preterm delivery, multiple gestation, chronic hypertension or pre-existing diabetes, antibiotic use before enrollment in the study, allergy to metronidazole, history of alcohol abuse in past year, and women under age 18 are excluded.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

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 research study is being done to compare the safety and efficacy of GDC-229 (test drug) against the currently marketed reference drug (metronidazole 0.75% vaginal gel) and to establish...
The purpose of this intervention is to find out whether intravaginal treatment with a gel containing an antibiotic (metronidazole), compared to a similar placebo gel (without antibiotic), ...
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...
Bacterial vaginosis (BV), the world's most common vaginal infection, continues to cost patients time, energy, comfort and money. BV is associated with increased incidence of sexually trans...
Recurrence following recommended treatment for bacterial vaginosis is unacceptably high. While the pathogenesis of recurrence is not well understood, recent evidence indicates re-infection from sexual...
In the vagina of healthy reproductive-aged women, several microbial species maintain a finely tuned mutualistic relationship with the host providing the first-line of defense against the colonization ...
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 preven...
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 con...
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, ...
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.
The uptake of substances from the VAGINA via the vaginal epithelium/mucosa.
