Group Number of pregnant goats Number of foetuses/kids Days of gestation at the time of inoculation Inoculum (IV)
G1 7 10 40 Nc-Spain7 106 tachyzoites
G2 7 8 90 Nc-Spain7 106 tachyzoites
G3 7 8 120 Nc-Spain7 106 tachyzoites
G4 3–3–3 3–3–3 40–90–120a PBS
  1. IV: intravenous route.
  2. aIn G4, 3 goats correspond to each time-point of inoculation (40, 90 and 120) and were culled at the average day of abortion of each group (i.e., 10 (n = 2) and 20 (n = 1) dpi for G1; 31 dpi for G2, n = 2) or parturition of kids (55 dpi for G2, n = 1 and 16–20 dpi for G3, n = 3).
