Abstract

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. 

Keywords: Dakar, prevalence, toxoplasmosis, Toxoplasma gondii.
