[Therapeutic regimens for treating bacterial vaginosis in pregnant women].Akush Ginekol (Sofiia). 1999; 38(3):14-6.AG
The study comprises 128 pregnant women examined at different gestational weeks. The diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis was made using: a) the complex clinical criteria--vaginal discharge, vaginal pH, amine test and "clue cells" b) Nugent scoring system c) Spiegel criteria. Two therapeutic regimens were compared--intravaginal 2% clindamycin creme (Dalacin V) 5 g three consecutive days and intravaginal metronidazole (Flagyl) 500 mg once daily for 5 consecutive days. Control examination was carried out 5-7 days after completion of therapy using the same protocol. 28 women from the first group and 31 women from the second group had the control examination. Bacterial vaginosis was eradicated in 93% of women using intravaginal clindamycin and in 87% of women using intravaginal metronidazole. Both regimes were more effective compared to treatment with oral ampicillin for 7 days, where the cure rate was 62%.
