Toxoplasma gondii is one of the most frequent human zoonosis, infecting around a third of the world's population. Aim of the study: The present study was carried out to evaluate the role of serum level of IL-6 and IL-17 in aborted women infection with Toxoplasma gondii. Sixty aborted women (patients) and also thirty apparently healthy women as a control group were involved in present study. The women were between 20 to 43 years of age, all were attend Medical Centers in Baghdad city, during the period from 1st October 2021 till 15th August 2022. The interleukins that were measured by ELISA test were Interleukin-6(IL6), and Interleukin-17(IL17). The study showed a high significant increase in serum level of IL-6 and IL-17 in patients (27.45 ±3.19,218.02 ±23.97Pg/ml) respectively, when compared with serum levels in control group (9.52 ±0.96pg/ml, 24.31 ±2.35pg/ml) respectively, The role of IL-6 and IL-17 in the immune response against toxoplasmosis was studied, it was found that there was a concomitant increase of IL-6 with the increase of IL-17. A significant elevation levels of IL-6 and IL-17 in aborted women with toxoplasmosis in comparison with healthy women. That demonstrates the significance of these interleukins in stimulating or impressing immune response and resistance to toxoplasmosis.
