Examination of a wide range of inbred mice of diverse genetic backgrounds and major histocompatibility complex haplotypes revealed a dramatic difference in the susceptibilities of males and females to Toxoplasma gondii infection. Female mice were found to be more susceptible to acute infection, as determined by higher mortality levels, than male mice, while those female mice surviving to have chronic infections harbored more cysts in their brains than did surviving males. This phenomenon was… CONTINUE READING
