Many women present in primary care with vaginal complaints. The best way of managing these complaints is unclear. This trial will test two different methods of managing patients with vagi...
This study is designed as a prospective evaluation of the diagnostic performance of the multiplex nucleic acid-based genetic test (Gynecologene Next-Generation Sequencing test) to identify...
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a common infectious disorder and is characterized by a disturbance in the vaginal microbiological milieu. Anaerobic bacteria, such as Gardnerella vaginalis and ...
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 ...
Vulvovaginal candidiasis is a common mucosal infection affecting a large proportion of women with some of them affected by recurrent often intractable forms of the disease. Thus, there is an increasin...
Urinary tract infection commonly affects postmenopausal women, probably because of the changes in vaginal flora secondary to estrogen deficiency. So, the use of vaginal estrogens could revert this pro...
Epithelial cells lining the vagina are major components of genital tract immunity. The influence of the vaginal microbiome on properties of host epithelial cells is largely unexplored. We evaluated wh...

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.
Collection of pooled secretions of the posterior vaginal fornix for cytologic examination.
