Abstract

We examined IgG antibody to Toxoplasma in sera from 1,693 inhabitants aged 20-85 years in Jakarta. The seroprevalence rate was 70%, without any significant differences between males (71%) and females (69%). Some epidemiological factors contributing to the high prevalences of antibody to Toxoplasma in inhabitants of urban areas in Indonesia were discussed.
