Abstract

A prospective study for antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii was carried out in a prenatal population in Halifax, N.S. Serial serum samples from sixty-five women's pregnancies were tested, using an hemagglutination microtitre technique. Antibodies were found in 13.7% of cases. The constant level of titres in those with antibodies indicated that their primary infection with Toxoplasma gondii had not occurred during the pregnancy under study.
