Serological diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in patients with AIDS

Serological diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in patients with AIDS

Mitteilungen der Osterreichischen Gesellschaft fur Tropenmedizin und Parasitologie 12: 321-327

To verify the usefulness of direct agglutination tests in the immunodiagnosis of toxoplasmosis in AIDS patients, 2 of these tests were compared to conventional methods in 12 AIDS patients from Germany, 11 with cerebral toxoplasmosis and one with lymph node toxoplasmosis. One of the agglutination tests, the "Toxo-Screen DA", showed pathologically elevated titres in all patients and is considered valuable in the diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in AIDS patients.
