Rapid diagnosis of acute toxoplasmosis during pregnancy permits timely treatment and prevents or attenuates congenital toxoplasmosis. Specific IgM antibodies to Toxoplasma as marker of acute infection are often poorly informative, meaning that a complementary technique is needed to reach a diagnosis on the first sample. Here we evaluated 2 commercial kits designed to assist with the diagnosis of acute toxoplasmosis: Platelia Toxo IgG Avidity Complementary Reagents and Platelia Toxo IgA, both… CONTINUE READING
