A total of 447 cervical or vaginal specimens were inoculated in parallel onto peptone-starch-dextrose (PSD) and Columbia colistin (10 mg/ml)-nalidixic acid (15 mug/ml) (CNA) agar and were incubated for 48 h at 35 degrees C in an atmosphere with 2 to 10% CO2. One hundred (22. 4%) of the cultures were positive for Haemophilus vaginalis. Forty-eight of the isolates were recovered from both PSD and Columbia CNA agar, five from PSD only, and 47 from Columbia CNA agar only (P less than 0.
Hitherto, there has been difficulty in isolating and growing these bacteria and little attention has been paid to growth in liquid media. Reasons for establishing the means of attaining optimal growth in such media include production of antigens for diagnostic and immunological studies and production of the soluble cytotoxin. In this study the efficacy of 12 liquid culture media in supporting growth was examined. M. mulieris (strain A198) multiplied>10-fold in only five media – Schaedler broth, Columbia blood broth (CBB), peptone-starch-dextrose.
1%) cases; culture, in 100 cases, (21. 3%) and Amine Odour (21. 3%), in 26 cases 5. 5%, Majority, 71 cases, of the culture-positive results were associated with a pH value of 6 to 7. Gardnerella vaginalis grew predominantly in enriched culture media: Modified peptone-starch dextrose.
Among the seven amines, putrescine and cadaverine were the most abundant and were present in all vaginal discharges from each of ten patients before treatment. These amines are produced in vitro during growth of mixed vaginal bacteria in chemically defined medium, presumably by decarboxylation of the corresponding amino acids. We hypothesize the anaerobic vaginal organisms, previously shown to be quantitatively increased in NSV, are responsible for the amine production, because metronidazole inhibited the production of amines by vaginal bacteria in vitro, and Haemophilus vaginalis did not produce amines. H. vaginalis did release high concentrations of pyruvic acid and of amino acids during growth in peptone-starch-dextrose.
