Abstract: We investigated the prevalence of anti-Toxoplasma antibodies in the general population, and among unmarried young women who were freshmen in the College of Medical Care and Technology, Gunma University. The frequency of anti-Toxoplasma antibodies among general population increased gradually from 0.7% in the under 19 year age group to 35% in the 80 to 99 year age group. Up to the age of 29 years (young age group), 2.8% had the antibody, between the age of 30 to 59 years (middle age group) 18.6%, and from the age of 60 and over (old age group) 34.2%. However, the level of titers in the young age group was higher than the others. The finding indicates recent infection of Toxoplasma gondii in the young age group. In the study of the year-to-year changes among freshmen from 1987 to 1992, there has been an obvious decrease in frequency. Nineteen out of 472 subjects (4.0%) had the antibody in 1987, and 12 out of 503 (2.4%) in 1992. The result indicates the risk of primary infection among young people.
