Abstract
Context: Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite with a world-wide distribution. However, the majority of infected cases remain symptomless. There are raising scientific evidences indicating that parasitic infections induce antitumor activity against certain types of cancers. The inhibitory effect of T. gondii on cancer growth has also been shown in cell culture and mouse model. Aims: Considering the anti-tumor effect of this parasite, in this study the relationship between low titer of antibodies against T. gondii and resistant to cancers has been investigated. Subjects and Methods: In two separate experiments, anti T. gondii antibody was estimated in 150 pat...
