Abstract

A new complement fixation test for toxoplasmosis was compared with the classical indirect immunofluorescence test (IFAT) and indirect hemoagglutination test (IHAT). Neither false positive or negative results were obtained with LBCF-H100-TTE. Notably these values correlate well with IFA and IHA titers. Furthermore LBCF-H100-TTE shows the highest titers in acute cases and its time course is practically superimposible to IFAT. The differences obtained performing these 3 different tests on the preferential detection of different antigen antibodies systems are discussed.
