Age-sex distribution of Toxoplasma antibody in the South Australian population

The Journal of Hygiene
A M JohnsonP J McDonald


Sera from 1071 patients in nine age categories were screened for Toxoplasma antibody by indirect immunofluorescence. Thirty per cent of the sera contained antibody at a titre greater than or equal to 1/16. The percentage of sera containing antibody rose from 3% in the 6 months--5 years age group to a maximum of about 40% in the 31--40 years age group. It remained constant thereafter. Eleven per cent of the 84 sera with Toxoplasma antibody titres greater than or equal to 1/128 had Toxoplasma IgM titres greater than or equal to 1/32. No significant difference was found in the possession of antibody between the sexes.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
