ABSTRACT

 

Mohammed K Bawi, Ibrahim AH Al-Zubaidi., Epidemiology of toxoplasmosis by age, gender and location in Iraq, Onl J Vet Res., 28 (6): 365-370, 2024. We report prevalence of Toxoplasma gondi in non-pregnant women and persons not in contact with felines in 47 subjects aged 17-29, 35 aged 30-39 and 18 aged 40-48 years between 15 October and 15 December 2023 determined by toxo IgG Igm combo rapid test. Results showed incidence of 12/47 (25%) in youngest, 12/35 (34.2%) middle aged and 3/18 (16.6%) in oldest subjects but we found no significant differences between male and female. We find that compared with previous results, differences with age may be due to IgM/IgG tests.

 

Key-words: Toxoplasma, prevalence, gender, age, location, Iraq.
