Abstract: This study was performed to verify the occurrence of anti-Toxoplasma gondii antibodies in swine raised and slaughtered in the state of Bahia, Brazil. Four hundred sixty five swine blood samples from farms of different cities had been collected and examined. Anti-T. gondii antibodies was detected by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and considered positive all the animals with equal or bigger headings than 1:16. From these, 18.27% (85/465) of total sample were positive for T. gondii, 30.76% (24) in … Show more

“…Analysis on the risk factors associated with T. gondii infection is important when the main purpose is to adopt control measures and prophylaxis against swine toxoplasmosis. In the present study, there was a significant difference between the genders regarding seropositivity, since the female sex was (39.88% for male and 60.12% for female) associated with higher seroreactivity for T. gondii, corroborating previous studies (BONNA et al, 2006;MILLAR et al, 2008;BEZERRA et al, 2009;SOUSA et al, 2014) However, this association may probably occur due to a sample bias instead of a sex related susceptibility (SILVA et al, 2010).…”

“…Although extensive and semi-extensive systems favor greater contact with sporulated oocysts in the environment (MARANA et al, 1994), this association was not observed in previous studies on cattle (FAJARDO et al, 2013). Moreover, in another study, hardy extensive pig breeding systems were considered to be a risk factor, compared with intensive commercial breeding systems, possibly due to the greater exposure of the animals in the extensive system to sporulated oocysts that were present in the soil and water of the region studied (BEZERRA et al, 2009).…”

“…However, the occurrence of toxoplasmosis in pigs found in this study was higher than those observed in previous studies: 36.2% in Paraíba (Azevedo et al 2010); 26.9% in Alagoas (Valença et al 2011); 18.2% in Bahia (Bezerra et al 2009); 12.8% in Mato Grosso (Muraro et al 2010); 12.6% in Paraná (Santos et al 2015) and 12.5% in Pernambuco (Fernandes et al 2012). But was lower than observed in Rio de Janeiro (65.8%; Bonna et al 2006) and Rio Grande do Sul (86.0%; Silva et al 2003).…”

“…In Bahia State, Bezerra et al (2009) found that 46.8 % of the pigs slaughtered were seropositive. Other research on pigs slaughtered for human consumption in the States of Paraíba (Azevedo et al 2010;Feitosa et al 2014) and Pernambuco (Fernandes et al 2011) reported prevalence of 9.7, 19.5, and 36.2 %, respectively.…”
