MV140 enhances the response to Candida albicans
According to research published in Frontiers in Immunology, the response to Candida albicans is enhanced and improved in combination with MV140 (Uromune). Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis is a common infection. Prevention measures and treatments are still limited. It is often associated with urinary tract infections as a consequence of antibiotic treatment. Uromune is a bacterial vaccine used to prevent recurrent urinary infections. In this experimental study it is demonstrated how the combination of MV140 with Candida albicans enhances the response against this fungus, favoring the specific and non-specific cellular response, as well as the antibody response.
