Table 1 Effects of experimental treatments on parasite densities (means ± se)

From: Disrupting rhythms in Plasmodium chabaudi: costs accrue quickly and independently of how infections are initiated

  Host and parasite schedules Route of infection Stage injected Rsq
  Matched Mismatched IP IV Rings Trophozoites
Day 1 pi 1.02 ± 0.01 0.84 ± 0.01 0.72 ± 0.10 1.12 ± 0.09 1.13 ± 0.10 0.71 ± 0.09 0.433
Day 2 pi 3.76 ± 0.67 2.59 ± 0.35 2.07 ± 0.30 4.29 ± 0.62 4.31 ± 0.61 2.05 ± 0.30 0.458

  1. Rsq values for minimal models are included. Note, there was no significant difference between matched or mismatched parasites on day 1 pi. Day 1 and 2 pi are × 106 /mL and cumulative densities are × 109 /mL.
