The course of infection during BV and other vaginal infections is of high importance for a better understanding and targeting of these diseases. New mechanisms are revealed constantly, and gold standard treatments need to be challenged on a regular basis. Most recent results on the virulence mechanism of biofilm have raised the question of successful treatment options. Professor Palmeira will highlight in vitro data on biofilm permeabilization and link those results to practice. Further treatment options of BV will be discussed and recent insights from premedical studies will be included. Afterwards, Professor Palmeira will be available for a short Q&A session.
