Alternative drugs against Trichomonas vaginalis
AbstractTo investigate the effect of drugs other than metronidazole, 3 non- pregnant women infected with Trichomonas vaginalis were treated with doxycycline, 2x200 mg/ day for 1 week. Another 3 women were treated with praziquantel, single dose, 40 mg/ kg body weight. No therapeutic effect was detected for either drug. In vitro, oxytetracycline led to death of T. vaginalis at a concentration of 15 mg in 0.5 mL medium. Extract of Myrtus communis caused death of T. vaginalis at pH 4.65, but failed to do so at pH 6.00. Extract of Eucalyptus comaldensis [50 mg in 0.1 mL medium] at pH 5.35 caused death of T. vaginalis after 24 hours

Al Saeed, W.M. (2011)This study compared 4 different diagnostic methods for the detection of Trichomonas vaginalis in vaginal swab specimens from women attending a hospital in Dohuk in Iraq. A total of 425 vaginal swabs were obtained from women complaining of vaginal discharge associated with vaginitis, cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease. The results showed that 10 [2.4%] swabs were positive for T. vaginalis by wet smear preparation, 15 [3.5%] by haematoxylin-eosin stained smear, 17 [4.0%] by Papanicolaou stain and 23 [5.4%] using Diamond modified culture. ...
