Abstract

Toxoplasma gondii, by all conceivable ecological and epidemiological measurements and analysis, has to be regarded as an extremely successful parasite. It has been found in high incidence in most warm blooded vertebrates and has a generally global distribution. Approximately 30% of the world’s human population is infected, although the prevelance varies markedly from country to country
