This article is from PLoS ONE, volume 9.AbstractObjective: Female genital tract secretions inhibit E. coli ex vivo and the activity may prevent colonization and provide a biomarker of a healthy microbiome. We hypothesized that high E. coli inhibitory activity would be associated with a Lactobacillus crispatus and-or jensenii dominant microbiome and differ from that of women with low inhibitory activity. Study Design: Vaginal swab cell pellets from 20 samples previously obtained in a cross-sectional study of near-term pregnant and non-pregnant healthy women were selected based on having high 90% inhibition or low
