Toxoplasma gondii causes the most common parasitic infection in the world. Congenital transmission, prenatal mortality and abortion are major problems of T. gondii. Prevalence of toxoplasmosis is high in Iran, especially in Azerbaijan. The current literature reviewed in this paper reveal results pertaining to various regions of Iran. The present cross-sectional e-study was designed to evaluate the seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis in childbearing women in Northwest Iran. We evaluated 1659 women… Expand
Seroepidemiological survey of toxoplasmosis among female university students in Shiraz, southern Iran
The findings of the study indicated that more than 90 % of the female university students in this study were seronegative for toxoplasmosis, which means that there is a possibility for their newborns to become infected with Toxoplasma. Expand
Evaluation of seroprevalence and seroconversion rates of Toxoplasma gondii infection in female students at Babol University of Medical Sciences, Babol, Iran
There is an urgent need for a national screening project to determine the seroconversion rate of Toxoplasma infection in women at childbearing age, particularly pregnant women from all over. Expand
Toxoplasmosis and Alzheimer: can Toxoplasma gondii really be introduced as a risk factor in etiology of Alzheimer?
Investigation of the correlation between Toxoplasma as an etiologic agent in the progress of Alzheimer’s disease shows that, infection with T. gondii cannot be considered as a risk factor for etiology and developing Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Comparison of IIF, ELISA and IgG avidity tests for the detection of anti-Toxoplasma antibodies in single serum sample from pregnant women.
How to manage and evaluate pregnant women who are suspected to be infected with toxoplasmosis by using diagnostic tests, especially in a single serum sample indication is highlighted. Expand

Seroprevalence and risk factors for toxoplasma infection among pregnant women in Aydin province, Turkey
One of every three pregnant women in Aydin was at risk of toxoplasmosis at the first trimester of their pregnancy, and increased seroprevalence with age was a predictable result because of increasing time of exposure. Expand
Seroepidemiological Survey of Toxoplasma Infections of Mentally Retarded Children
There were no significant differences in the prevalence rate between the genders, but the prevalence significantly in- creases with age, and Toxoplasma antibody titer in 36 cases were reported as 1:100 and it was found to be 1:200, 1:400 and 1:800 in 9,1 and 3 cases, respectively. Expand
Toxoplasmosis in Primiparus Pregnant Women and Their Neonates
The epidemiological profile and risk correlates might help focus prenatal education and newborn screening strategies and could be more easily justified in central part of Tehran because low incidence populations detected and probably treatment of mothers infected during pregnancy led to lower rates of transmission to the newborn. Expand
