Abstract : Since long possible cyst formation by Trichomonas vaginalis has been discussed. According to our observations the round forms of Trichomonas generally appear as degenerative manifestations of the cell, especially in older cultures. We tried to study analytically the biology of Trichomonas vaginalis in relation to its biogenic surroundings. Here the biochemico-physiological relationship between Trichomonas and the fundamental biogenic substances involved in the manifold metabolic processes of the macroorganism is of special interest. The three metabolite groups, vitamins, enzymes and hormons were taken into special consideration. (Modified author abstract)
