Lactobacillus crispatus is a common, rod-shaped species of genus Lactobacillus. It is a species in the phylum Firmicutes, in the class Bacill and is a hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) producing beneficial microbiota species located in both the vagina, through vaginal discharge, and the vertebrate gastrointestinal.  It is being evaluated specifically for the prevention and treatment of bacterial vaginosis, which is characterized by the absence of lactobacillus flora, which plays a large role in protecting the host from infection.
