  1. Fulltext. Regional variation in toxoplasmosis seronegativity in the Sao Paulo metropolitan region.

    Article - En anglais


    Toxoplasmosis is a highly prevalent zoonotic human infection caused by the Apicomplexa protozon Toxoplasma gondii.

    The acute disease is usually mild or asymptomatic, except to foetal infection transmitted by acutely infected pregnant women, which courses as a devastating disease.

    In order to determine possible regional variations in risk factors, we studied the frequency of seronegativity in areas of the Sao Paulo Metropolitan Region, comparing titers and age groups.

    The prevalence of seronegativity was determined retrospectively in 1286 pregnant women receiving prenatal care at public health services in four selected areas of the Sao Paulo Metropolitan Region of similar socioeconomic background.
