Abstract

The aim of the current study is to find the levels of MIP and IL-23 in the serum of a group of male patients infected with Toxoplasma gondii who were diagnosed with the disease by rapid IGg screening and to find the levels of IGg protein in the blood serum of a group of male patients infected with the disease. The aforementioned immune indicators in the serum of healthy people as a control group. Blood samples were taken from donors who came to the main blood bank in Najaf Al-Ashraf, and the relationship between these immune indicators was studied using ELISA technology. The total number of males was (78), (48) of whom were sick males and (30) healthy males who were not infected with the disease. The study showed that the percentage of infected males was 61% and those who were not infected were (4.38%). Age was studied and it was found that there was no significant difference in the age of patients and healthy people, and that the age range of patients was between (16 - 56) years. Serum tests were conducted for MIP,there was a slight increase, and a highly significant increase for IL-23.The current study demonstrated the existence of positive relationships between MIP-1 and IL-23.
