The skin and mucous membranes harbour a variety of micro-organisms. These can be arranged into two groups. They are derived from the environment, do not produce disease nor establish themselves permanently on.
The invention discloses a lactobacillus vaginal capsule and a preparation method thereof. The prepared lactobacillus vaginal capsule is a powdered capsule composed of excipient and living enterostreptococcus, wherein one capsule contains at least 2. The experiments show that the lactobacillus vaginal capsule can fully supplement lactobacillus which is the most important material in vagina so as to inhibit the growth and propagation of bacteria and play the action of using bacteria to inhibit bacteria; the best advantage of the lactobacillus vaginal capsule is to overcome the problem that the abuse of antibiotics and related products results in that vaginitis repeatedly relapses so as to cause microecological imbalance, drug resistance, superinfection, side effect and the like, solve the problem that patients have symptoms but can not find pathogeny and the problems such as overdiagnosis, over-treatment and medication security of lactation and pregnant women, provide a new choice for prophylactic of healthy women and fill the blank of the medication for lactation and pregnant women.
Bacterial vaginosis BV and complicated vulvovaginal candidiasis VVC are frequently occurring vaginal infections in postmenopausal women, caused by an imbalance in vaginal microflora. Postmenopausal women suffer from decreased ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. A normal, healthy vaginal microflora mainly comprises Lactobacillus species spp.
Maternal recto-vaginal colonization of group B streptococcus in pregnant women visiting a hospital in Mashhad-Iran was studied. Recto-vaginal samples obtained from pregnant women were carefully observed by direct Gram stain. Also, the samples were inoculated to Todd-Hewitt broth containing supplements. After re-inoculation onto sheep blood agar, group B streptococci were identified by colony morphology, beta-hemolysis, differential biochemical tests and agglutination test as confirmation identification.
In vitro antagonistic growth effects of Lactobacillus fermentum and Lactobacillus salivarius and their fermentative broth on periodontal pathogens. As lactobacilli possess an antagonistic growth property, these bacteria may be beneficial as bioprotective agents for infection control. However, whether the antagonistic growth effects are attributed to the lactobacilli themselves or their fermentative broth remains unclear.
Bryan Larsen, Gilles R. The microbiological flora of the lower female genital tract provides a dynamic, complex example of microbial colonization, the regulation of which is not fully understood. When an exogenous bacterial species, with its array of virulence factors, is introduced into the host, disease does not always occur.
It was a fascinating read in February on Motherboard: Cecile Westbrook, a PhD student from Madison, Wisconsin, attempted to make yogurt from her own vaginal bacteria. A gross idea, that nevertheless fits in well with modern microbiology. Most important discoveries in recent years had pretty disgusting aspects to them.
A healthy vaginal microbiota is considered to be significant for maintaining vaginal health and preventing infections. However, certain vaginal bacterial commensal species serve an important first line of defense of the body. Any disruption of this microbial barrier might result in a number of urogenital conditions including aerobic vaginitis AV and bacterial vaginosis BV. The health of the vagina is closely associated with inhabitant microbiota.
Metrics details. Composition of the vaginal microbiota has significant influence on female urogenital health and control of infectious disease. Murine models are widely utilized to characterize host-pathogen interactions within the vaginal tract, however, the composition of endogenous vaginal flora remains largely undefined with modern microbiome analyses.
Background: Vaginitis, is an infectious inflammation of the vaginal mucosa, which sometimes involves the vulva. The balance of the vaginal flora is maintained by the Lactobacilli and its protective and probiotic role in treating and preventing vaginal infection by producing antagonizing compounds which are regarded as safe for humans. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective role of Lactobacilli against common bacterial opportunistic pathogens in vaginitis and study the effects of some antibiotics on Lactobacilli isolates. Materials and Methods : In this study vaginal swabs were obtained from women suffering from vaginitis who admitted to Babylon Hospital of Maternity and Paediatrics in Babylon province, Iraq.
