Abstract : A number of substances (folic acid, axerophtol, tokopherol and others) stimulate the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis and, therefore, are very well suited for trichomonas media. The presence of these substances in the urogential system of man could favour occasional trichomonas affection. A second group of vitamins (thiamine, lactoflavin, pyridoxine and others) are without recognizeable effect upon the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis. The third group of substances (nicotic acid amide, liponic acid, xanthopterin, vitamin F, menadion and others) seem to be especially interesting since they show inhibiting effect upon the growth of Trichomonas vaginalis. Further investigations with these substances within a combined inhibition system seem to be important. (Modified author abstract)
