Abstract:

The present study has been concerned with the influence of some hormones upon trichomonas growth. The following substances were used for our experiments serotonin, oestron, progesteron, hydroxyprogesteron, adrenalin, testosteron, methyltestosteron, and the antihoromone 3.5-dijodtyrosine. The experiments were performed on 7 trichomonas vaginalis strains. The test cultures with serotonin, oestron, testosteron and methyltestosteron grew at concentrations from 0.20 to 6.0 mgml as well as the control cultures. Inhibiting action, especially at a concentration of 0.80 mgml could be demonstrated in the experiments with progesteron. Slightly inhibiting action was noted in the experiments with hydroxyprogesteron from concentrations of 3.0 mgml onward. Adrenalin and noradrenalin have generally inhibiting action from 0.80 mgml onward upon trichomonas growth. The antihormone 3.5-dijodtyrosin does rarely influence the growth of trichomonas. Author
