Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Purified E IH
Toxoplasma is a crescent shaped sporozoan that lives as intracellular parasite in various tissues of vertebrates. It completes its life cycle in a single host. It is transmitted via raw/undercooked meat, contaminated soil or by direct contact. Infection due to Toxoplasma gondii usually occurs in pregnant women where a variable degree of immunosuppression may exist or in patients receiving immunosuppressive drug therapy following organ transplant. Traditionally, Toxoplasma infects tissue of the GI tract where an active infection is accompanied by fever and enlargement of the spleen. Symptoms of toxoplasmosis are generally mild. Ssevere infection of lymph nodes may occur. Congenital toxoplasmosis, in which the maternal infection is transmitted during pregnancy, can produce blindness or mental retardation in the newborn.
