Genital mycoplasmosis in cows is a disease accompanied by a latent course, which complicates its timely diagnosis and the appointment of specific treatment. This disease may lead to infertility. An obstacle to the introduction of pathogens into the epithelium of the mucous membrane is a variety of defense mechanisms. A study of the state of the protective properties of the vaginal mucosa in healthy and mycoplasma-infected cows was carried out by determining the concentration of hydrogen ions and immunoglobulins in vaginal secretions. The results of the study showed a shift in the reaction of vaginal secretions towards neutrality in mycoplasmosis. Thus, the persistence of mycoplasmas in the mucous membrane of the vagina of cows causes a change in the protective properties of the vaginal secretion, as a result of which conditions are created that promote the activation of pathogenic microflora.
