Abstract

Toxoplasma gondii is a unicellular organism of the Apicomplexa that occurs worldwide and is therefore a close relative of the malaria pathogen Plasmodium. As T. gondii infests every warm-blooded vertebrate species as an intermediate host and has a very high prevalence worldwide, toxoplasmosis is one of the most important international foodborne diseases. Potential vaccines (human as well as veterinary) play a crucial role in controlling this disease.
