In chronic suppurating lesions, anaerobic species (Prevotella, Porphyromonas, Anaerococcus, and Mobiluncus
The RT-RPA assay did not detect the genomic DNA of the 13 following bacteria: Lactococcus lactis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Bifidobacterium breve, Anaerococcus lactolyticus, Acinetobacter baumannii, Bordetella pertussis, Bacteroides fragilis, Mobiluncus
The INFINITI[R] Resolve QUAD Assay individually identifies Gardnerella vaginalis, Mobiluncus

and Bacteroides, among others (Llnhares et al.
Briefly, in this system, the three morphotypes (Lactobacillus, Bacteroides/Gardnerella & Mobiluncus
3,4) Although the most common micro-organisms associated with preterm birth are Ureaplasma urealyticum, Mycoplasma hominis, Gardnerella vaginalis, Bacteroides species, Mobiluncus
curtsii and a variety of anaerobic species, some studies have suggested that infection with Trichomonas vaginalis may increase the risk of preterm birth.
Bacterial vaginosis is caused by the overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria such as Gardnerella, Mobiluncus
, Bacteroides, or Mycoplasma.
Lactobacillus products would seem to have a role in BV as the goal of treatment is to reestablish naturally occurring lactobacillus flora in the vagina depleted by BV and to decrease the presence of other species, such as Mobiluncus
Patients with both disorders are deficient in lactobacilli, but the most common microorganisms seen in patients with bacterial vaginosis are anaerobic pathogens, in particular Gardnerella vaginalis and mobiluncus

Others are human papillomavirus (HPV), a cause of cervical cancer; HTLV-I, which can cause a rare cancer or a paralytic illness; mycoplasma, which causes urethritis; mobiluncus
, which causes vaginosis; and human herpes virus 8, which causes Kaposi's sarcoma and lymphoma.
