Vaginal infections effectively cured by friendly bacteria

Scientists in Italy and Canada reported that “friendly” bacteria may change the way human infections are treated. Known as probiotics, some lactobacilli strains effectively hasten cure and prevent recurrence of infections.

Italian researchers found that genitourinary tract infections of women who were treated with oral antibiotics and oral probiotics resolved faster and had fewer recurrences than women who took oral antibiotics alone.

An investigation in Canada showed that the urogenital well-being of healthy women was maintained when probiotics were administered through the vaginal route. Urinary tract infection and yeast infections of the vagina were effectively treated and recurrences were prevented according to similar Canadian studies.

In women with no history of urinary tract infection for the past year, researchers say that taking probiotics for two months lowered the number of harmful bacteria and yeast counts in the vaginal canal.

It has been shown that after taking probiotics, the organisms travel and inhabit the vaginal microenvironment where they persist for about ten weeks. Scientists believe that some strains of lactobacilli stabilize the microbial milieu of the genital tract.

These findings suggest that probiotics may be effective in the treatment and recurrence of genital tract infections.
