The detailed understanding of vaginal infections has led to a deeper knowledge of the vaginal microbiome, which is directly responsible for healthy or pathological states. An important component of the microbiome are Lactobacilli, the “gatekeepers” of the vagina and a natural defense against pathogens. But could vaginal infections simply be cured by supporting the microbiome with pre- and/or probiotics?
In this webinar, Prof. S. Lebeer from the University of Antwerpen brings you up to speed with the current understanding of the vaginal microbiome. Is there a favorable state? How can the microbiome be steadier? And what role do pre- and probiotics play, in the treatment of imbalanced microbiota and vaginal infections?
Join this free, international Webinar to gain further insights in the uprising topic of the microbiome and use this possibility to direct your questions towards Prof. Lebeer and the end of her presentation.
