Mucosal barriers, such as the cervico-vaginal mucosa, are the body’s first line of defense against external pathogens. They are formed by epithelial cells and the substances they secrete. In a healthy microenvironment, tight junctions between the paracellular space and the presence of mucus on epithelium surface, prevents the passage of external microorganisms (such as virus and bacteria) and toxins into the tissue. The reduction in this defensive barrier function can lead to disease and can also hinder the natural healing process.
Papilocare vaginal gel creates a film that prevents abrasions, micro lesions and lesions on cervical-mucosa and protects damaged epithelium from external agents’ exposure. This muco-adhesive gel, specifically formulated for this purpose, combines selected ingredients which act synergistically on three modifiable factors related to the clearance or persistence of HPV-induced low grade cervical lesions:
1. The histological structure of the ectocervix
2. The status of the vaginal microbiota balance
3. The woman’s immune status
Papilocare vaginal gel’s muco-protective, re-epithelizing and microbiota balancing actions restore and optimise the defensive barrier role of the cervico-vaginal mucosa, preventing cervical lesions in HPV infected patients and helping to repair HPV-dependent cervical lesions, reestablishing the optimal conditions for a natural healing process.
