Autoimmune study in toxoplasmosis women
The effecting of toxoplasmosis in the production of autoantibodies was studied through three
markers, anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) and
rheumatoid factor (RF). The immunofluorescent technique (IFAT) was used to estimate the
ANA and ANCA, It was found that 9.8% and 5.5% of toxoplasmosis patients had ANA and
ANCA respectively, but with no significant differences (P>0.05) when comparing with
the control group of each one. RF was tested by LAT and revealed that 10% of both infected
women and healthy controls had antibodies against RF with no significant differences
(P>0.05) between them.
