Treatment of BV With Donaxyl and a Molecular Test of Cure

. Treatment with dequalinium chloride vaginal tablets for 6 days had a cure rate lower than expected; only 37% of patients were considered cured one month after treatment.


This is the first study to utilize a molecular diagnostic test as a test of cure for bacterial vaginosis. The Nugent score is a reliable method for diagnosing bacterial vaginosis, but similar to traditional clinical diagnostic methods, it is not equally reliable when utilized as a test of cure. This study demonstrated that molecular diagnostic testing can be used as a test of cure and this is the first molecular test that can do that. Treatment with dequalinium chloride vaginal tablets for 6 days had a cure rate lower than expected; only 37% of patients were considered cured one month after treatment.

Treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis Prior to Active Labor and Infectious Morbidity

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal discharge among repro-ductive aged women. It is been linked to adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes. Our objective is to eval...

Therapeutic Lactose to Support Vaginal Microbiota

The aim of the study was to investigate whether the administration of a vaginal tablet containing lactose can modulate the bacterial flora of women with bacterial vaginosis (BV). Design: ...

A multi-center, open-label study to evaluate the treatment of one oral dose of 2g Solosec™ (Secnidazole) in adolescent girls with BV

Quantification of Bacterial DNA in Sepsis

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether bacterial DNA clearance measured with droplet digital Polymerase Chain Reaction (ddPCR) can be used as a measure of bacterial load in septi...

Effect of Bacterial Translocation on Haemodynamic and Coagulation Parameters During Liver Transplantation

The present study is to demonstrate the effect of the presence of bacterial translocation detected by bacterial deoxyribonucleic acid (bactDNA) in blood and ascites using the polymerase ch...

Association between obesity and bacterial vaginosis as assessed by Nugent score.

Bacterial vaginosis is one of the most common vaginal conditions in the U.S. Recent studies have suggested obese women have an abnormal microbiota reminiscent of BV; however, few studies have investig...

Indoor Bacterial Microbiota and the Development of Asthma by 10.5 years of age.

Early-life indoor bacterial exposure is associated with the risk of asthma but the roles of specific bacterial genera are poorly understood.

Positive impact of biochar alone and combined with bacterial consortium amendment on improvement of bacterial community during cow manure composting.

The present work studied to evaluate the effectiveness under the interaction of bacterial consortium and biochar applied to give impetus to bacterial community activities among cow manure composting. ...

BHap: a novel approach for bacterial haplotype reconstruction.

The bacterial haplotype reconstruction is critical for selecting proper treatments for diseases caused by unknown haplotypes. Existing methods and tools do not work well on this task, because they are...

Evidence-Based Study Design for Hospital-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia and Ventilator-Associated Bacterial Pneumonia.

The US Food and Drug Administration solicited evidence-based recommendations to improve guidance for studies of hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP) and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumon...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces. It is a factor in bacterial colonization and pathogenicity.

Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.

Inflammation of the lung parenchyma that is caused by bacterial infections.

Bacterial enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These bacterial enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing negatively, but not positively, supercoiled DNA.

Suspensions of attenuated or killed bacteria administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious bacterial disease.
