A nutritional supplement containing the probiotic Lactobacillus strains L. rhamnosus, L. jensenii, L. crispatus and L. gasseri with protective and immunomodulating activities. The bacteria in this probiotic supplement colonize the vaginal tract and help to maintain as well as restore the composition of the normal, healthy vaginal flora. The four Lactobacillus species form a protective barrier that helps both to maintain the integrity of the vaginal tract and prevent the attachment of pathogenic bacteria and other harmful substances, thereby protecting against genitourinary infections. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
