Abstract : A number of vitamins have been investigated for their influence upon Trichomonas vaginalis. At a concentration of 0.20 mg ml vitamin A has stimulating action upon the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis. Vitamin D2 has been shown to favour Trichomonas multiplication in all experimental series. Vitamin D3 generally favours the Trichomonas vaginalis population. Addition of vitamin E resulted in enhanced multiplication of Trichomonas and longer duration of life. In the presence of rutin the experimental Trichomonas cultures show identical behaviour to the control series. In all of the strains tested the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis was identical to that of the control series at concentrations up to 10 mg/ml. At higher concentrations a decrease in multiplication was noted. (Author)
