In this study, vaginal microbiome was divided in five biotypes, being four of them dominated by lactobacilli and considered as healthy (pH 5.0) and higher diversity. In a healthy status, microbiota is balanced and forms a stable ecological unit dominated by Lactobacillus species, which fixes pH below 5.0 and controls non-desirable groups. In a pathogenic process, the microbiome shifts to a dysbiotic state, in which lactobacilli drop, pH is increased to values above 4.5 and other groups such as Gardnerella, Atopobium, Prevotella, and Streptococcus, among others, can overgrow (Srinivasan et al., 2012). Short chain fatty acid...

For solid lipid microparticle dispersions a successful and selective delivery of adapalene via targeted erosion of the particles in sebum has been shown. By embedding nanoparticulate benzoyl peroxide in lipid microparticles, the therapeutic potency of adapalene can be further increased by improving follicular deposition of ben...
