Table 1 The prevalence of antibodies against EBA175 and PfRh2 during the study period

From: Subclass responses and their half-lives for antibodies against EBA175 and PfRh2 in naturally acquired immunity against Plasmodium falciparum malaria

Prevalence (%)a   PfRh2   EBA175
  5-13 years 14-70 years 5-13 years 14-70 years
  (18 children) (22 adults) (18 children) (22 adults)
Total IgG 100% 100% 100% 100%
IgG1 83% 95% 94% 82%
IgG2 86% 86% 94% 82%
IgG3 83% 77% 94% 91%
IgG4 89% 77% 94% 95%
  1. a= Positive prevalence when antibody titers (OD) were greater than the mean plus 3 SD of the value for the non-immune Swedish donors.
