Subversion of innate and adaptive immune responses by Toxoplasma Gondii

  title={Subversion of innate and adaptive immune responses by Toxoplasma Gondii},

  journal={Parasitology Research},
The intracellular apicomplexan parasite Toxoplasma gondii is able to survive and persist in immunocompetent intermediate hosts for the host’s life span. This is despite the induction of a vigorous humoral and—more importantly—cell-mediated immune response during infection. In order to establish and maintain such chronic infections, however, T. gondii has evolved multiple strategies to avoid or to interfere with potentially efficient anti-parasitic immune responses of the host. Such immune… CONTINUE READING
