Monolaurin, also called monoglyceride of lauric acid and glycerol monolaurate
, can kill many different kinds of microbes.
Studies of toxic shock syndrome have already identified chemicals that can suppress vaginal inflammation, including glycerol monolaurate, a constituent of vegetable oils.
It is not yet clear whether glycerol monolaurate would block HIV in a woman's cervix already inflamed by other infections, or whether blocking cervical immune responses might leave her less protected against other infections.
London, March 5 (ANI): University of Minnesota researchers in Minneapolis say that a microbicide gel made from glycerol monolaurate, an ingredient in some foods and cosmetics, has shown some promise in protecting female monkeys from contracting an HIV-like virus.
Haase revealed that that observation reminded him o f work done by a fellow immunologist at the University of Minnesota, Patrick Schlievert, whose lab had found that glycerol monolaurate inhibits the production of some deadly bacterial toxins, including anthrax toxin and toxins responsible for toxic shock syndrome.
These early studies gave us information primarily on the effects of monolaurin (glycerol monolaurate
) on animal malignant cells (Ehrlich carcinoma).
Scientists at the University of Georgia individually tested glycerol monolaurate
, hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid, lactic acid, sodium benzoate, sodium chlorate, sodium carbonate and sodium hydroxide for their ability to inactivate C.
aureus elaboration of hemolysin, toxic shock syndrome toxin 1, and exfoliative toxin A was inhibited at glycerol monolaurate concentrations below those necessary to inhibit growth.
Studies have shown, beside the possible mechanisms listed above, that glycerol monolaurate (Lauricidin [R]), also inhibits the production of a variety of exotoxins.
