The FMVI strain of Trichomonas vaginalis was freshly isolated from an asymptomatic patient, and its morphological properties and virulence in vitro compared with the well-established JT strain. The morphological variability of the parasites was assessed by differential interference microscopy and both scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The FMV1 strain presented nearly 20% amoeboid cells whereas the JT strain presented high percentages of ellipsoid but no amoeboid cells. The FMV1… CONTINUE READING
