Rabbit anti Toxoplasma gondii RH Strain antibody recognizes purified Toxoplasma gondii trophozoites.
T. gondii is an intracellular protozoan parasite that enters its host via the gastrointestinal tract, and is the only member of the Toxoplasma genus. The definitive host of T. gondii is cats, but it can also be carried by a vast number of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Toxoplasmosis is usually minor and self-limiting but can have serious or even fatal effects on a fetus, or if the host is immunocompromised. T. gondii encephalitis (TE) is the most common cerebral opportunistic infection in patients with AIDS.
