Abstract

The data herein reported reveal the prevalence of toxoplasma antibodies in a small number of mammals collected on three Iowa farms during October, 1964. Serologic evidence of past or persistent infection was noted in the feral house cat, gray and red fox and the opossum. Specimens found positive ranged in titer from 1:64 to 1:1024. Numbers in each category are insufficient to estimate general prevalence of infection in wild mammals in Iowa.
