  • We followed up a cohort of 446 toxoplasma-infected pregnant women to determine the median and variability of the duration of positive toxoplasma-IgM (immunoglobulin M) results measured by an immunofluorescence test (IFT) and an immunosorbent agglutination assay (ISAGA). IgM antibodies were detected for longer using the ISAGA test [median 12.8 months, interquartile range (IQR) 6.9-24.9] than the IFT (median 10.4, IQR 7.1-14.4), but the variability between individuals in the duration of IgM… CONTINUE READING
