An abstract of the article "Vaginal Microbiological Flora of Pregnant Women With Bacterial Vaginosis and Its Relationship to H2O2-Producing Strains of Lactobacillus spp." is presented. The data suggest that the species of bacteria isolated from women with grade 2 flora were not substantially different from those with grade 3 flora. Also, the strains of lactobacilli isolated from women with BV produced H2O2.
