Toxoplasma encephalitis in immunocompromised patients results from reactivation of previously acquired (latent) infection. The aim of the study is to assess the antigenaemia and antibody response to Toxoplasma gondii in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients to determine the best marker for early diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in such patients. Indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of IgG, IgM and IgA anti-toxoplasma antibodies and double-sandwich ELISA for… CONTINUE READING
