Resumen

In the framework of the investigation Seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii and associated risk factors in Felis
catus in Havana, this causal agent of toxoplasmosis, a re-emergent and cosmopolitan zoonosis that affects mammal and birds as intermediate hosts and felines as definitive hosts, was approached. In Cuba, a high seroprevalence of T. gondii in humans was reported in the capital; however, to date, the prevalence in the feline species (Felis catus) in Havana is unknown, mainly due to the absence of diagnosticians on the veterinary network and the complexity in sampling. For the above arguments, it was decided to determine the seroprevalence of T. gondii and to identify the risk factors associated with the presence of anti-T. gondii antibodies in Felis catus.
