Toxoplasma gondii is an important pathogen of humans and domestic livestock and is a major cause of abortion. It is widely distributed amongst mammals and birds and the epidemiology of human disease is complex due to the interactions between human and animal hosts. Cats are the definitive host for the parasite and rodents are believed to be involved in propagation of the parasite in cat populations. The aims of this study were to use molecular biological methods to investigate parasite transmission in wild rodents and humans.
