Table 2 Amplification results with A. vaginae and G. vaginalis specific primers obtained for 150 vaginal samples of different grades

From: Cloning of 16S rRNA genes amplified from normal and disturbed vaginal microflora suggests a strong association between Atopobium vaginae, Gardnerella vaginalis and bacterial vaginosis
