UC Merced research discovers increased dangers from parasite

New research at UC Merced has discovered that the toxoplasma parasite, an organism capable of infecting almost all warm-blooded animals, can be more dangerous than most believed. This new research project found that South American strains of the parasite are stronger and better at evading the immune system, resulting in disease in hosts that should have been immune.
