b. Ciprofloxacin
c. Pyrimethamine
d. Thiacetazone  


ANSWER:
Answer: C
Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite. It is one of the most common human parasites in the world. Combination of pyrimethamine and a sulfonamide is effective against acute toxoplasmosis in immunocompetent adults. These 2 drugs work synergistically against the tachyzoite form of T gondii. As an alternative to sulphonamides, clindamycin may be beneficial when used in combination with pyrimethamine.
