Evidence of Toxoplasma gondii in Rodents from Bangladesh.
Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis. 2019 12; 19(12):884-888.VB

Abstract

Rodents contribute to the life cycle of the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii as an intermediate host and key prey animal of cats, the definitive host. As there is limited scientific knowledge available about the incidence and prevalence of T. gondii in commensal rodents in many Asian countries, we tested rodents from a commercial rice mill and eight local villages in Bangladesh for the presence of T. gondii DNA using rodent brain material preserved in ethanol. Overall, 10 of 296 (3.4%) rodent samples tested positive for Toxoplasma DNA. Our results indicate that rodents present in food production and food storage facilities may carry T. gondii.
