Abstract : The present study was concerned with the relationship between the vitamins of the B-complex and Trichomonas. From the results obtained in studies on vitamin B1 clear evidence of any influence upon Trichomonas growth could not be obtained. Choline favours the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis. In the experimental series with adenine from 1.4 mg/ml onward inhibiting effect upon the Trichomonas population was noted. Vitamin B6 has no clear effect upon Trichomonas, therefore, an analytical study with its individual forms, pyridoxine, pyrodoxal, pyridoxamine, would be desirable. The three forms of vitamin B6 show differing action upon other microorganisms. Biotin (vitamin H = vitamin B1) showed favourable action upon all Trichomonas strains. Adenylic acid could be shown to influence Trichomonas growth favourably. Meso-inosite favoured Trichomonas multiplication. At concentrations from 0.20 mg/ml onward liponic acid had inhibiting effect upon Trichomonas. Carnitine chloride favoured the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis. (Modified author abstract)
