Abstract : The relationship between the double and trifold unsaturated fatty acids and Trichomonas vaginalis was tested. The experiments aimed at testing the influence of vitamin F, linolic and linoleic acid upon multiplication of Trichomonas vaginalis. Vitamin F exerts trichomonacidal effect upon Trichomonas vaginalis cultures. Linolic acid alone does not yet show great differences at concentrations of 0,01 to 0.05 mg/ml, as compared to the controls. At 0.10 mg/ml inhibiting action may be noticed and, at a concentration of 0.20 mg/ml the cell number is heavily reduced. Linoleic acid exerts essential influence upon Trichomonas multiplication within a concentration range of 0.01 to 0.10 mg/ml. At concentrations from 0.20 mg/ml onward, heavy reduction in the Trichomonas population was noticed. (Modified author abstract)
