From: In vaginal fluid, bacteria associated with bacterial vaginosis can be suppressed with lactic acid but not hydrogen peroxide

Figure 1

Microbicidal activity of hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) with 50 mU/mL human myeloperoxidase (MPO) at pH 7, against four species of vaginal lactobacilli (solid lines) and seventeen species of bacteria associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV) (broken lines). The vertical dashed line indicates the concentration of H2O2 measured in vaginal fluid (VF) from women with a lactobacilli-dominated microbiota (~ 23 μM).
