Despite the development of serological and molecular methods in recent years, the diagnosis of cerebral toxoplasmosis in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients still presents difficulties. In the present study, we investigated whether cerebral toxoplasmosis induced changes in the reactivity of serum toward Toxoplasma gondii excreted-secreted antigens (ESA) in order to develop an assay for evaluating HIV-infected patients with cerebral toxoplasmosis. The antigen selection was based… CONTINUE READING
