The kinetics of Toxoplasma gondii infection reactivation in the brain and muscles was analyzed in this study to determine the preferred tissue by the parasite during immunosuppression. Two groups of Wistar rats (G1 and G2) were inoculated with 10(4) bradyzoites of BTU10 strain (genotype I), p.o., and other two groups (G3 and G4) were inoculated with 0.9% saline solution. G2 and G4 were immunosuppressed with dexamethasone (DXM) and hydrocortisone sodium succinate (HSS). The presence of… CONTINUE READING
