Efficacy of an acidic vaginal gel on vaginal pH and interleukin-6 levels in low-risk pregnant women: a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial

(2004) J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med. 15: 198-201. Paternoster DM, Tudor L, Milani M, Maggino T, Ambrosini A.

The use of the acidic gel in low-risk pregnant women is able to maintain a physiological vaginal ecosystem and prevents the increases of vaginal pH and vaginal IL-6. Prospective and controlled trials are warranted to evaluate whether this acidic gel can reduce obstetric complications linked to vaginal inflammation during pregnancy.
