Mobiluncus

A genus of gram-positive, curvilinear anaerobic bacteria (including Mobiluncus curtisii and M mulieris) that have spinning motility, which are found in the vagina, associated with Gardnerella vaginalis and implicated in bacterial vaginosis.

Esta entidad usualmente se acompana de un incremento en la concentracion de Gardnerella vaginalis, Micoplasma hominis y otras bacterias anaerobias, tales como Bacteroides y Mobiluncus. La Gardnerella vaginalis se encuentra en el 95% de las pacientes con VB y en el 40% de las pacientes asintomaticas; el sobrecrecimiento de la Gardnerella vaginalis y otros anaerobios causan una elevacion del pH vaginal y produccion de aminas, como la putrescina, trimetilamina y cadaverina, causantes del olor a pescado descompuesto (7).

The study examined the effects of three specific bacteria (Mobiluncus mulieris, Gardnerella vaginalis and Lactobacillus) on cervical cell.

The OSOM BV Blue by Seklsui Diagnostics, is a rapid test that detects sialidase activity in a vaginal sample from the following bacterial pathogens: Gardnerella, Bacteroides, Prevotella, and Mobiluncus. OSOM BV Blue is an easy-to-use, cost-efficient, point-of-care diagnostic test that provides rapid results, allowing a test-and-treat approach to the management of patients with BV.
BV is due to replacement of normal vaginal flora by anaerobic bacterial overgrowth, including Prevotella sp, Mobiluncus sp, G.
(2,5,6,7,8) It has a polymicrobial aetiology that includes Gardnerella vaginalis, Mycoplasma hominis, and various obligate anaerobes like Bacteroides, Prevotella, Porphyromonas, Peptostreptococcus, Peptococcus, Veillonella, Eubacterium, Mobiluncus, (5,6,8,9) Peptoniphilus, and Fusobacterium.
(5,6) De estas, la vaginosis bacteriana (VB) es la mas frecuente y tiene como agentes causales bacterias que sustituyen la flora normal de Lactobacillus acidophilus, tales como Mobiluncus spp., Prevotella spp., Mycoplasma hominis o Gardnerella vaginalis, siendo esta ultima la de mayor frecuencia.
