Investigation of HIV positive patients for toxoplasmosis using the latex agglutination test


, : Investigation of HIV positive patients for toxoplasmosis using the latex agglutination test. Serodiagnosis and Immunotherapy in Infectious Diseases 4(4): 249-253

Asymptomatic HIV positive patients were investigated for Toxoplasma gondii infection using the dye test and the latex agglutination test. 732 blood samples from patients in the UK, were processed and the sensitivity of LAT found to be maximal when defined as reacting with neat serum.
