Table 4 The distribution of PfHRP2 sequences (number, no; percentage, %) into four groups based on the number of type 2 × type 7 repeats: group A (very sensitive) PfHRP2 sequences contained more than 100 type 2 × type 7 repeats, group B (sensitive) contained between 50 to 100 type 2 × type 7 repeats, group C (non-sensitive) contained <43 repeats and the "borderline" group I contained between 44 and 49 repeats
