On the other hand, the disequilibrium in the vaginal ecosystem, due to the rise in pH above 4.5 and a decrease or absence of colonization by lactobacilli, decrease of vitamin A, folate and calcium may be predisposing factors to the proliferation of microrganismo [6,8,19].…”

Lactobacilli producing the hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) show in vitro the ability to inhibit various bacteria, including Gardnerella vaginalis, anaerobes, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, among others.…”
