Actuality of Seroprevalence of Toxoplasmosis in Women, Dog and Cat in Dakar in 2012
by Open Science Repository Medicine
Toxoplasmosis is an anthropozoonosis of medical and veterinary importance, due to the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Oocysts shed by felids play a key role in parasite transmission as they contaminate meat-producing animals, vegetables and water consumed later by humans. In this work, we tried to reproduce the results of serological tests for toxoplasmosis performed in the laboratory of the Abass NDAO hospital’s in women (179 cases) as a method using the enzyme immunoassay solid phase (EIA) and cats (50 cases) and dogs (20 cases) as a method using the agglutination test Live plate. It shows a seroprevalence of 25±18,98% in dogs, 70±12,70% in cats and 45.81±7,30% in women with 44.24±7,58% in pregnant women. These first results need to be followed by more extensive investigations.
