Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum are related Apicomplexa parasites responsible for systemic diseases in many species of animals, including dogs. METHODS: This study aimed to determine the occurrence of T. gondii and N. caninum infections in 50 dogs with neurological signs that were admitted to the Veterinary Hospital of Universidade Estadual Paulista, City of Botucatu, Brazil. All animals were screened for antibodies using an immunofluorescent antibody test for both parasites. Tissues of po… Show more

“…In addition to these confirmed reports, Langoni et al (2012) isolated N. caninum by bioassay in gerbils inoculated with brains of two of seven dogs with neurological disorders. No other details were given about these dogs or the strain of Neospora, therefore, not included in Table 1.…”

“…There was no similarity between the genotypes found in this study and those of T. gondii isolates from Brazilian dogs in previous reports [9,26,27]. There was also no resemblance to the genotypes identified in the reports [11,13], which genotyped isolates from swine and sheep, respectively, in the same Bahia microregion as surveyed in this study (Table 2).…”

“…For investigation of the epidemiological status of T. gondii as well as for its detection out of clinical samples and foodstuff PCR technique had been used by various authors (Contini, Seraceni, Cultrera, Incorvaia, Sebastiani & Picot, 2005;Jauregui, Higgins, Zarlenga, Dubey, & Lunney, 2001;Langoni, Matteucci, Medici, Camossi, Richini-Pereira & Silva, 2012;Lin, Chen, Kuo, Tseng, & Tseng, 2000;Pujol-Rique, Derouin, Garcia-Quintanilla, Valls, Miro & Jimenez de Anta, 1999). The developed real time-PCR of the present study proved to be reliable for the detection of T. gondii-DNA out of different matrices.…”
