Toxoplasma gondii Infection in South-East Europe: Epidemiology and Epizootiology
TLDR
The gravity of the potential consequences of CT on the one hand, and the preventability of the disease on the other, call for implementation of prevention programs.
Prevalence of antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii infection in humans and domestic animals in Samsun province, Turkey
TLDR
A broad range of serological tests has been developed to diagnose infections with T. gondii in intermediate hosts and sheep with toxoplasmosis do not display specific clinical signs but it causes significant economic losses due to prenatal death and abortion.
The role of ticks in transmission cycle of Toxoplasma gondii
TLDR
A wide circle of hosts suggests a possibility of other paths of transmission and a role of ticks, the bloodseeking arthropods was considered in the transmission of T. gondii.

TLDR
There is a need for quantitative data so that efficient strategies to reduce food-borne transmission of T. gondii to humans can be developed.
Development of B1 Nested PCR for Assessing the Prevalence of Zoonotic Protozoan Disease Agent Toxoplasma Gondii among Food Animals from Karnataka State, Southern India
TLDR
In some cases, this infection may lead not only abortion but destructive inflammation including the brain and eyes, which may lead to severe acquired conditions of chorioretinitis, pulmonary forms or life threatening if acquired through congenital route or as a sequelae of reactivation in immune compromised individuals.
Review on Toxoplasmosis and Its Zoonotic Importance
TLDR
In Ethiopia, the prevalence of immunoglobulin G antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii has been determined by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay and the highest antibody titers were found in children, young and adults.
Oesophageal and gastric toxoplasmosis: rare presentation of an emerging zoonotic disease
TLDR
The first case in the literature, highliting the fact that; though rare oesophageal and gastric Toxoplasma infection can occur, leading to dysphagia and dyspepsia, Carnivorism of cats makes it difficult to keep them free of disease.
Toxoplasmosis: A relevant zoonotic food borne disease in tropical conditions
TLDR
Pork meat is recognized as the most likely source of infection in humans, however, poultry, domestic ruminants and wild species are increasingly playing an important role in the exposition to humans when their meat is handled or consumed.

Experimental Transmission of Toxoplasma gondii
TLDR
The possibility that free Toxoplasma in the intestine, liberated either from infected food or from intestinal lesions, might be capable of associating with intestinal nematodes and passing to the exterior within their ova seemed worthy of investigation.
Toxoplasmosis needs evaluation. An overview and proposals.
TLDR
Toxoplasmosis is usually an asymptomatic and innocent disease, but in fetuses and immunocompromised hosts it often takes a severe course, and new aspects of this old parasitic disease that have recently come to light.

Neospora caninum is a newly described coccidian parasite which has been found in various species such as the dog, cattle, horse, sheep and goat. Morphologically it resembles Toxoplasma gondii with

TLDR
After the development of a sensitive serologic test by Sabin and Feldman (1948), Toxoplasma antibody was fond earthwide, especially in areas with moist and warm climates.
The resistance of the encysted form of Toxoplasma gondii.
TLDR
There are data indicating that the encysted form of the parasite is more hardy than the proliferative form, and morphological evidence indicating that cysts do not originate from masses of proliferating intracellular forms, but develop separately from small structures which increase in size and in number of contained parasites.

TLDR
Clinical diagnosis of toxoplasmosis is difficult and is often delayed until the antibody response has peaked, the usual criterion of a rise in antibody titres is therefore not applicable and diagnosis may have to depend on a single serum examination.
