abstract

  • Vaginal secretions from women with BV are deficient in d- and l-lactic acid, women with VVC have elevated EMMPRIN and MMP-8 levels, and women with CTV have elevated l-lactic acid levels. These deviations may contribute to the clinical signs, symptoms, and sequelae that are characteristic of these disorders.
