Performance of commercial ELISA and agglutination test kits for the detection of anti-Toxoplasma gondii antibodies in serum and muscle fluid of swine infected with 100, 300, 500 or 1000 oocysts.

Abstract

Serum and tissue fluid samples from experimentally infected swine were tested for antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii using both an indirect ELISA and a modified agglutination test (MAT) available commercially in kit form. Ten 8-9 week-old swine were fed meatballs containing 100, 300, 500 or 1000 T. gondii oocysts and three control animals were fed meatballs… (More)
