During this study, cats were immunized by the intranasal and rectal routes with crude rhoptry proteins of Toxoplasma gondii admixed with Quil-A. Twenty-five domestic short hair cats divided into five groups (n=5) were used during this evaluation: G1 and G3 cats received 200 μg of the rhoptry proteins with Quil-A (20 μg) by the intranasal and rectal routes, respectively; G2 and G4 cats received bovine serum albumin (BSA, 200 μg/dose) with Quil-A (20 μg); and G5 animals served as unvaccinated… CONTINUE READING
