Abstract : The aim of the investigation was to test the relationship between the individual K-vitamins K1, K3, K4 and K5 and Trichomonas analytically. The experiments were performed with the strains Nussbaum, Alexander, Tolksdorf, Bergit, Schuster and Wenzel. The experiments performed with vitamin K1 did not show any remarkable differences between the control culture and the test series (Table 1) in Trichomonas multiplication. With vitamin K3 gradually inhibiting action could be demonstrated (Table 2); at concentrations of 0.08 to 0.16 mg/ml decrease of Trichomonas growth may be observed. With vitamin K4 essential reduction of multiplication of Trichomonas vaginalis was observed within a range of 0.25 and 0.35 mg/ml, from 0.40 mg/ml onward single Trichomonas could be noted during the first few days following inoculation. The experiments with vitamin K5 took similar course as those with K4 (Tables 4 and 7). There occured a decrease in multiplication and viability of Trichomonas. (Modified author abstract)
