Diagnosis of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal condition, affecting an estimated 30% of women at any given time. While many women remain asymptomatic, when signs and symptoms do arise they include an elevated vaginal pH>4.5, discharge, and malodour due to amines. BV is also associated with a number of co-morbidities, including increased transmission and acquisition of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and increased risk of preterm labour.

High Affinity RHAMM/HMMR Binding Peptides for Imaging and Therapeutic Applications

Hyaluronan (HA) is a simple extracellular matrix polysaccharide that a wealth of experimental approaches has demonstrated actively regulates inflammation in tissue repair, fibrogenic disease processes and cancer progression. In general, large HA polymers, which are mainly present in homeostatic tissues, are immunologically quiescent and contribute to enforcing homeostasis.
