Abstract

Summary

Nine volunteers received bacteria-free into the vagina. Seven of them became infected and developed vaginitis of varying intensity. The amount of glycogen (GI) in the vaginal mucosa varied inversely with the number of the organisms in the vaginal discharge, with minimal concentrations of 2 per cent in glycogen content in epithelial cells at the period of maximum population of trichomonads. It is suggested that vigorous consumption of glycogen by facilitates the invasion of bacteria into vagina, with resulting vaginitis.
