Abstract

188 sera collected from patients at the Enarotali Hospital and persons living in the surroundings of the hospital in the district of Paniai, Irian Jaya, Indonesia, were tested by indirect hemagglutination tests for antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii. Antibody titers equal to or greater than 1 : 256 were considered positive and were detected in 65 or 34.6% of the persons tested. The seropositivity rates were not significantly different between males and females. The prevalence of antibodies did not increase with age.
