Malaria infection was associated with decreased CD14+percentages and enhanced percentages of CD11c+, CD54+, CD56 but not HLA-DR+and CD36+cell populations. PBMCs were stained extracellularly for CD14 (A), CD54 (B) CD11c (C) HLA-DR (D), CD36 (E) and CD56 (F) cell expression for each group (low (<1,000; n=51), medium (1,000-10,000; n=65) and high (>10,000; n=22) mean parasite density (per μl of blood)) was determined by flow cytometry and compared to endemic controls (EC). **p ≤0.01 (ANOVA).
