seroprevalence of toxoplasma gondii in equids from southern spain.antibodies to toxoplasma gondii were determined in serum samples from 616 equids (454 horses, 80 mules and 82 donkeys) in a cross-sectional study of 420 herds in andalusia (southern spain), the region with the highest number of equids in spain. antibodies to t. gondii were found in 10.8% horses, 15.0% mules and 25.6% donkeys by using the modified agglutination test (mat) at a cut-off of 1:25. herd seroprevalence for horses, mules and donkeys was 14.7% (48/327), 23.9% (11/46) and 34.0% (16/47), r ...201222366344
occurrence of antibodies against toxoplasma gondii and its isolation and genotyping in donkeys, mules, and horses in brazil.the occurrence of antibodies against toxoplasma gondii was determined in donkeys, mules, and horses from different regions of brazil. serum samples from 304 donkeys (67.11%), 118 horses (26.05%), and 31 mules (6.84%) were analyzed by means of the indirect fluorescent antibody test (cutoff=64). antibodies against t. gondii were detected in 129 equids (28.47%) (82 donkeys, 32 horses, and 15 mules). tissue samples from 19 seropositive and 50 seronegative animals were obtained in order to isolate th ...201525747488
occurrence of antibodies to toxoplasma gondii in mules and donkeys in the northeast of brazil.the aim of the present study was to investigate antibodies to toxoplasma gondii in the serum of mules and donkeys bred in the northeast of brazil. in total, 483 samples were used (395 mules and 88 donkeys) from 4 states (pernambuco, rio grande do norte, paraíba, and sergipe). the indirect immunofluorescence reaction (ifi) technique was used to investigate antibodies to t. gondii with a cut-off point of 64. positive frequencies of 23.8% and 43.2% were recorded for mules and donkeys, respectively. ...201322924911
