Benzoyl Peroxide Formulated Polycarbophil/Carbopol 934P Hydrogel with Selective Antimicrobial Activity, Potentially Beneficial for Treatment and Prevention of Bacterial Vaginosis
BPO inhibits G. vaginalis (a) but not healthy vaginal lactobacilli L. vaginalis (b), L. gasseri (c), L. plantarum (d), and L. acidophilus (e) in direct exposure experiments. (●) represents the negative control, (□) represents the base gel, (▲) represents 1% BPO hydrogel, and (◊) represents BPO particles. Experiments were conducted at least twice in duplicate. Mean values and standard deviations are shown.
