The pH of the media is dependent on the cell mass and on all organic acids produced by Lactobacillus species, and not all strains of G vaginalis can be inhibited by lactobacilli-producing bacteriocin.

Use of this test for determination of GBS colonization during labor is highly sensitive and specific and may lead to a further reduction in rates of neonatal GBS disease.

G. vaginalis isolates from patients with bacterial vaginosis and from patients without BV were examined, and biotype 5 was predominantly associated with a healthy vaginal ecosystem and biotypes 5 and 7 were the most resistant to metronidazole.

It is critical that patients who have chronic vaginitis be thoroughly evaluated to determine if there is a specific etiology and whether their condition is recurrent or persistent, or is a reinfection.

It appears that at least two mechanisms are responsible for the development of postcesarean open wounds: increased amniotic fluid and wound colonization due to prolonged rupture of membranes, resulting in a wound infection containing one or more bacterial species derived from the cervicovaginal flora, and increased exogenous bacterial contamination and flora consistent with skin species or breaks in sterile technique.

The relatively high rates of resistance for 6 of the 12 antibiotics tested suggest that for women allergic to penicillin and colonized with GBS, antibiotic sensitivities to their isolates should be determined.
The role of bacterial vaginosis in infection after major gynecologic surgery.
Although the association between BV and postoperative febrile morbidity could be a spurious result of confounding with other variables, it may be prudent for the surgeon to identify patients with Bv and treat them preoperatively.
