Table 4 Positive rates of Circumsporozoite protein (CSP) of P. vivax

From: Comparison of the antibody responses to Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum antigens in residents of Mandalay, Myanmar

  Antigen No. Examined No. Positive Positive rate (%)
Group I 1VK210 52 12 23.1
  2VK247 52 5 9.6
Group II VK210 60 24 40.0
  VK247 60 13 21.7
  1. 1Isolates that reacted with synthetic peptide carrying the amino acid sequence [GDRA(D/G)GQPA] of the dominant form of P. vivax CSP.
  2. 2Isolates that reacted with synthetic peptide carrying the amino acid sequence [ANGA(G/D)(N/D)QPG] of the variant form of P. vivax CSP.
  3. * Significant difference between Group I and Group II results (Fisher's two-tailed P = 0.6551)
