  • lactobacilli
  • Milk contains lactobacilli bacteria that make it as an excellent natural cure for bacterial vaginosis. (top10homeremedies.com)
  • Women in the study who douched regularly were also found to have less of the healthy lactobacilli in their vaginal tracts. (livestrong.com)
  • BV is defined by the disequilibrium in the vaginal microbiota, with decline in the number of lactobacilli. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the first description of lactobacilli by Döderlein, lactobacilli have been generally considered as the gatekeepers of the vaginal ecosystem. (wikipedia.org)
  • Moreover, lactobacilli normally help to prevent long-term colonization of the vagina by adhering to vaginal epithelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vaginal colonization by H2O2-producing lactobacilli has been associated with a decrease in the occurrence of bacterial vaginosis (BV). (wikipedia.org)
  • Only supraphysiologic concentrations of exogenous H2O2 (0.34% w/v, 100 mM) were sufficient to inactivate BV-associated bacteria at which concentration it more potently inactivated vaginal lactobacilli (L. crispatus, L. gasseri, L. iners and L. jensenii). (wikipedia.org)
  • In contrast, under optimal anaerobic growth conditions, physiological concentrations of lactic acid inactivated the BV-associated pathogens without affecting the vaginal lactobacilli. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vaginal lactobacilli produce antimicrobial peptides, i.e. bacteriocins such as lactocin 160 and crispasin. (wikipedia.org)
  • These higher levels of glycogen in the vaginal canal support the growth of lactobacilli over other bacterial species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore, the predominance of lactobacilli in the vaginal canal creates a more acidic environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • lactobacillus
  • Microbiome studies clearly document what has been known for three decades, namely that protective Lactobacillus species, L. crispatus and L. jensenii, are absent or markedly reduced in women suffering from bacterial vaginosis. (bacterial-vaginosis-treatment.com)
  • Lactobacillus iners, a relatively difficult organism to grow in vitro and previously unrecognized, is often present in bacterial vaginosis, although its causal role is unclear. (bacterial-vaginosis-treatment.com)
  • Many women treated bacterial vaginosis with Lactobacillus acidophilus supplements and yogurt containing live cultures for years but dietary lactobacillus has been shown ineffective. (infobarrel.com)
  • At increased risk of bacterial vaginosis are women who have multiple sexual partners or a new sexual partner, women who have sex with women and women whose vaginal environment does not produce adequate amounts of lactobacillus bacteria. (infobarrel.com)
  • The primary colonizing bacteria of a healthy individual are of the genus Lactobacillus, such as L. crispatus, and the lactic acid they produce is thought to protect against infection by pathogenic species. (wikipedia.org)
  • The composition of the bacterial population in pre-pubertal girls is dominated by staphylococcus species, in addition to a range of anaerobes, enterococci, E. coli, and lactobacillus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The vaginal microbiota consists of those organisms which generally do not cause symptoms, infections, and results in good pregnancy outcomes, and is dominated mainly by Lactobacillus species. (wikipedia.org)
