Abstract Background Boric acid is a commonly cited treatment for recurrent and resistant yeast vaginitis, but data about the extent and mechanism of its antifungal activity are lacking. Objectives The aim of this study was to use in vitro methods to understand the spectrum and mechanism of boric acid as a potential treatment for vaginal infection. Methods Yeast and bacterial isolates were tested by agar dilution to determine the intrinsic antimicrobial activity of boric acid.

Results C. albicans strains (including fluconazole-resistant strains) were inhibited at concentrations attainable intravaginally; as were bacteria. PAN Pesticides Database - Boric acid - Identification, toxicity, use, water pollution potential, ecological toxicity and regulat. WIKIPEDIA - Boric acid. Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, orthoboric acid and acidum boricum, is a weak, monobasic Lewis acid of boron often used as an antiseptic, insecticide, flame retardant, neutron absorber, or precursor to other chemical compounds.

WIKIPEDIA - Boric acid.

It has the chemical formula H3BO3 (sometimes written B(OH)3), and exists in the form of colorless crystals or a white powder that dissolves in water. When occurring as a mineral, it is called sassolite. Occurrence[edit] Boric acid, or sassolite, is found natively in its free state in some volcanic districts, for example, in the Italian region of Tuscany, the Lipari Islands and the US state of Nevada.

In these volcanic settings it issues, mixed with steam, from fissures in the ground.

EUROPE 10/02/99 Opinion on the safety of boric acid in medicinal products adopted on 10 February 1999. Question The Committee is asked the following three questions: Does the safety profile of boric acid support its use in parenteral medications intended for neonates ?

EUROPE 10/02/99 Opinion on the safety of boric acid in medicinal products adopted on 10 February 1999

Should the current contraindication for boric acid in the guideline on the excipients in the label and package leaflet of medicinal products for human use remain in its current form ? Does the safety profile and clinical experience of boric acid support the establishment of threshold dose levels below which the contraindication should not be labelled ? Context of the question The question is asked in the frame of a "Guideline on the excipients in the label and package leaflet of medicinal products for human use" approved by the Pharmaceutical Committee which became applicable from 1st September 1997.

According to this guideline, any medicinal product containing boric acid, its salts and esters is contraindicated for infants or young children up to 3 years old. Assessment. EPA – Boric acid.

Effects on experimental animals and in vitro test systems Acute exposure The oral LD50 values for boric acid or borax in mice and rats are in the range of about 400–700 mg of boron per kg of body weight (Pfeiffer et al., 1945; Weir & Fisher, 1972).

OMS - Boron in drinking-water

Oral LD50 values in the range of 250–350 mg of boron per kg of body weight for boric acid or borax exposure have been reported for guinea-pigs, dogs, rabbits, and cats (Pfeiffer et al., 1945; Verbitskaya, 1975).
