[serological studies on prevalence of toxoplasma gondii in awassi sheep in syria].survey was conducted in 9 syrian provinces on clinically healthy awassi sheep. serum samples were collected from several districts (more than 47 localities--31 villages and 20 herds). animals were 1-5 years old. 458 samples were collected in spring 1997 and 352 samples were collected from november 1998 through february 1999. the result indicated that seroprevalence of toxoplasma gondii ranged between 0-100% in the herds and 13.8-74.5% between the provinces. and the mean of sero-prevalence was 44 ...200212058592
