Experimental toxoplasmosis in pregnant mares: a study of fetuses and placentas
Keywords:Toxoplasma gondii, Toxoplasmosis, Mares
AbstractNine pregnant mares were orally infected with sporulated T. gondii oocysts. Three additional, pregnant, uninfected mares were used as control. T. gondii were found in the placenta, retina, esophagus, liver, diaphragm, brain, spinal cord, skeletal muscles, heart, lung and tongue of newborn foals from experimentally infected mares. The finding of T. gondii in the foals reinforced the hupothesis of transplacentary transmission of this protozoa in equines.
