Abstract

Conclusions

1. Under experimental conditions wild boars are sensitive to toxoplasmosis to a significant degree. In all 6 of the infected animals the disease ended lethally. The characteristic clinical symptom was involvement of the eyes.

2. Spontaneous Toxoplasma antibodies were observed in 36 (34.3%) of 105 boars studied with CFRs.

3. Toxoplasma was found microscopically in smears of kidney, spleen, and brain from 3 boars; the bioprobe method revealed it in the lymph nodes of 10 animals; in these cases the strain isolated was avirulent.
