AbstractThis study aimed to investigate the prevalence of anti-T. gondii antibodies in hemodialysis patients with chronic renal failure and patients with urinary tract inflammation by using On site IgG/ IgM and ELISA IgM from November 2012 to February 2013. Anti-IgG and IgM T. gondii antibodies positivity were found to be 13.04% and 1.09% respectively by using On Site IgG, while there were no IgM antibodies by using ELISA. The significant effect of age, sex and type of infection wasn’t observed in proportion rate, highest rates was in 1-10 years old group, while lowest at 31-40 years and ≥51years while anti IgM antibodies found only in 21-30 years old. Proportion rates of IgG in female more than in males which were 13.9% and 13.04% respectively, while the rates of IgM2.2 in male only. Proportion rates of IgG in urinary tract inflammations patients more than in renal failure patients who were 14.6% and 11.4% respectively, while the rates of IgM 2.1% in urinary tract inflammations patients only 2.1%.
