Abstract

Maternofetal transmission of Toxoplasma gondii was assessed in pregnant guinea-pigs, with a gestational period of 65±5 days. A total of 56 female guinea pigs was infected by the intraperitoneal route (RH strain), by the oral or the intraperitoneal route (Prugniaud strain; PRU) or by the oral route...

Abstract

Primary infection with Toxoplasma gondii during pregnancy can induce fetal pathology and abortion in both humans and animals. The present study describes the development of an experimental model of congenital toxoplasmosis in the guinea pig. In this animal model, we evaluated the protective effect...

Abstract

The efficacy of immunisation with Toxoplasma gondii recombinant protein (rSAG-1) was evaluated in the guineapig model. For the infectious challenge, two strains, namely, strain C56 (10 000 tachyzoites) and strain 76K (100 cysts), were used to infect a group of 32 guinea pigs each. The circulating,...

Abstract

A serological survey of toxoplasmosis in pigs in Ghana was carried out during October 1997-April 1998 in the 3 ecological zones of Ghana: the Coastal Savannah, the Forest Belt and the Guinea Savannah. Antibody against Toxoplasma gondii was measured in pig serum using a microplate-ELISA which had a...

Abstract

Relatively few species of zoonotic parasites have been recorded in humans in Papua New Guinea. A greater number of potentially zoonotic species, mostly nematodes, occur in animals but are yet to be reported from humans. Protozoa is the best represented group of those infecting man, with Giardia...
