In this work, hydrogels containing clotrimazole-loaded nanocapsules were developed through the innovative association of two mucoadhesive polymers: Pemulen® TR1 and Pullulan. Furthermore, the hydrogels macroscopic characteristics, pH and spreadability were evaluated. The formulations showed homogeneous appearance and pH compatible with vaginal application (around 5.0). Similar spreadability profiles were found in hydrogels containing clotrimazole-loaded nanocapsules and in the free drug as well. Hydrogels were evaluated considering their mucoadhesive potential by the falling liquid film method and the permeation/penetration capacity through cow vaginal mucosa in Franz cell...

Nonspecific chronic vulvovaginitis (CNV) is often a clinical indicator of immune deficiency, especially in young girls. The established violations of the functioning of various parts of the immune system (IS) in this pathology dictate the need to include in the complex of immunomodulatory therapy. The developed program of combined immunotherapy for immunocompromised girls allows to reduce the severity and duration of exacerbation of CNV, their frequency against the background of a significant reduction in the incidence of ARVI...

Vulvovaginitis caused by upper respiratory flora is generally considered to be the most common gynecological problem in prepubertal girls. To date, however, no direct evidence has been obtained for the underlying mechanism of transmission. This report describes a case of non-capsulate Haemophilus influenzae vulvovaginitis in a 6-year-old girl with a history of foreign bodies (cotton wool) in her vagina. Moreover, this girl had recurrent rhinitis for approximately 3 years. On Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis the H...

Papillomaviruses are a diverse group of viruses that are known to infect a wide range of animal species. Bovine papillomaviruses (BPVs) are divided into at least 21 genotypes (BPV1 to BPV21),  with most BPV isolates/strains described to date belonging to one of four genera, including Deltapapillomavirus, Xipapillomavirus, Epsilonpapillomavirus and Dyoxipapillomavirus. Here, we describe the identification and genetic characterization of a new BPV type in the genus Dyokappapapillomavirus. A farm in the state of New York, USA, reported chronic cases of vulvovaginitis in Holstein cows in 2016...

Candida albicans is a ubiquitous mucosal commensal that is normally prevented from causing acute or chronic invasive disease. Neutrophils contribute to protection in oral infection but exacerbate vulvovaginal candidiasis. To dissect the role of neutrophils during mucosal candidiasis we took advantage of a new, transparent zebrafish swimbladder infection model. Intravital microscopic tracking of individual animals revealed that blocking neutrophil recruitment leads to rapid mortality in this model through faster disease progression...

OBJECTIVE: Vaginitis may be diagnosed as bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis, trichomoniasis, or coinfection. A new molecular test assays the vaginal microbiome and organisms that cause three common infections. The objective of the trial was to evaluate the clinical accuracy of the investigational test for vaginal swabs collected by patients (self) or clinicians. The primary and secondary outcomes were to compare the investigational test with reference methods for the three most common causes of vaginitis and compare clinician-collected with self-collected swabs...

Candida albicans is the predominant cause of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). Little is known regarding the genetic diversity of Candida spp. in the vagina or the microvariations in strains over time that may contribute to the development of VVC. This study reports the draft genome sequences of four Candida albicans and one Candida glabrata strains isolated from women with VVC. A SNP-based whole-genome phylogeny indicates that these isolates are closely related, however phylogenetic distances between them suggest there may be genetic adaptations driven by unique host environments...

Vaginal swab samples were collected both from women with signs of acute vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC; n=270) and from healthy controls (n=100). The microscopic examination revealed a significant difference in the proportion of positive cultures of Candida between the VVC (33%) and control (21%) groups. To determine the frequency of different species, positive cultures were analyzed using the germ tube test, CHROMagar medium, API 20 AUX System and DNA analysis. CHROMagar and API 20 AUX System tests identified 67% of samples as C...

BACKGROUND: Fibroepithelial polyps (FEPs) are benign tumors, of possibly hormone-dependent nature, found in the vulvovaginal region of women of reproductive age. CASE: A 15-year-old adolescent girl, on hormonal contraceptive therapy, who presented with multiple vulvar masses with histopathology consistent with FEP. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: The spectrum of the morphology of FEPs may make their diagnosis challenging. We describe a rare presentation of vulvar fibroepithelial polyps in an adolescent girl on hormonal contraceptive therapy...

Vulvovaginal and invasive candidiasis are frequent conditions in immunosuppressed individuals caused by Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida spp. Fluconazole and Amphotericin B are the main drugs used to fight the infection. However, resistance to fluconazole and other azole antifungal drugs is an important clinical problem that encourages the search for new therapeutic alternatives. In this work, we evaluate the antifungal activity of the biphosphinic cyclopalladate C7a in the in vitro and in vivo model...
