TOXO TEST – Only for medical use
A toxoplasma test is a blood test that determines if you have serum antibodies to the Toxoplasma gondii parasite. It’s also called a toxoplasmosis test. Your body only makes these antibodies after you’ve been infected by this parasite. The number and type of antibodies you have indicate whether your infection was recent or occurred some time ago. Your doctor may conduct more than one blood test over a period of several weeks.
For most adults, toxoplasmosis is harmless and goes away without the need for treatment. If a pregnant woman becomes infected, however, the infection may pass to the fetus. This can cause brain damage and blindness in the growing child. To see if your baby has become infected, your doctor can test a sample of the amniotic fluid, which is the fluid that surrounds your baby in the womb.
