Toxoplasmosis (Toxo) donors are greatly needed to provide researchers with the antibodies needed to make positive controls in diagnostic tests for patients seeking diagnosis.
Since these donations are used only for research and diagnostic purposes, we are able to compensate you for your time & effort. You can earn up to $1000 per week!
The plasma donation process typically leaves you free from the normal blood donation side effects of feeling dizzy or weak. Your body regenerates the plasma collected within 24 hours, meaning you can donate up to twice a week.
Toxoplasmosis Fact Sheet
How is it spread?
- Touching or coming into contact with infected cat feces (cats get the infection from eating infected rodents, birds or other small animals).
- Eating raw or undercooked meat that’s infected.
- Eating uncooked, unwashed fruits or vegetables that have been contaminated by manure.
- Being born with it (a woman who gets a toxoplasmosis infection while pregnant may pass the parasite on to her unborn child through the bloodstream)
How long will it last?
Although toxoplasmosis parasites may grow and multiply within 1 week after entering a person’s body it may be weeks or months before symptoms of the infection appear (if they appear at all).
Once a person has become infected with toxoplasmosis, the infection remains in the body for life, usually in the “inactive” form that won’t cause the person any side effects or harm. The infection can be reactivated, however, if the immune system becomes compromised by an HIV infection or cancer therapy.
