Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the serum antibodies against toxoplasma in swine from breeding-pig farm, pig farm and abattoir by latex agglutination(LA) test. LA test was carried out with commercial Toxo-MT kit (Eiken chemical co.). The results obtained were summerized as follows : 1. The cut-off titer of positive and negative reactions by Toxo-MT antigen used in this experiment was determined as the serum dilution of 1 ; 32. 2. positive rates of toxoplasma antibodies in 823 swine sera were 17.0%(140 cases) by LA test. 3. The toxoplasma antibody detection rates against 194 swine sera in breeding-pig farm, 273 swine sera in pig farm and 356 swine in abattoir were 46.9%(91 cases), 8.4%(23 cases) and 7.3% (26 cases) , respectively. 4. In LA test serum antibody titers in 823 test sera were shown as 51 cases (36.4%) in 1 : 32, 40(28.6%) in 1;64, 17(12.1%) in 1:128, 14(10.0%) in 1:256, 10(7.1%) in 1:512, 5(3.6%) in 1:1,024, and 3(2.1%) in 1 : 2,048. 5. Positive rates of toxoplasma antibodies in swine sera from each breeding-pig farm were 20.0∼61.9%.
