The ELISA assay developed in this study is both sensitive and specific for the detection of human antibody to Toxoplasma gondii infection initiated by consumption of infectious oocysts. The assay will be useful for planned large scale surveys of human serum banks to determine the predominant route of exposure of humans to T. gondii, and will be helpful in the development of strategies to reduce and eliminate exposure.
