Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention describes compositions and methods for inhibiting microbial infections associated with the use of sanitary products, such as diapers, bandages, sanitary napkins, tampons, and the like. The present invention comprises providing for use a sanitary product containing an effective amount of a viable, non-pathogenic, lactic acid-producing bacteria, such as $i(Bacillus coagulans), or an extracellular product thereof, useful for inhibiting growth of parasites and pathogens on the epithelial tissue in contact with the sanitary product during use of the product. The present invention also provides for enhancing biodegradation of sanitary products after use and disposal. Also described herein are methods using the product and systems containing the compositions.
(FR)L'invention concerne des compositions et des procédés visant à inhiber des infections microbiennes associées à l'utilisation de produits hygiéniques tels que couches, pansements, serviettes hygiéniques, tampons et analogue. L'invention concerne l'utilisation d'un produit hygiénique contenant une quantité efficace de bactéries productrices d'acide lactique viables, non pathogènes, telles que $i(Bacillus coagulans) ou un produit extracellulaire de celle-ci, utiles pour inhiber la croissance de parasites et de pathogènes sur le tissu épithélial en contact avec le produit hygiénique pendant son utilisation. L'invention prévoit aussi l'amélioration de la biodégradation de produits hygiéniques après utilisation et élimination. L'invention concerne également des procédés d'utilisation du produit ainsi que des dispositifs contenant ces compositions.
