Table 1 Frequencies and density of P. falciparum parasitemia, by age.

From: Interferon-gamma responses to Plasmodium falciparum liver-stage antigen-1 and merozoite-surface protein-1 increase with age in children in a malaria holoendemic area of western Kenya

Age (months) No. of positives/Total (%) Geo. mean density, parasites/μl (range)a
0–12 6/11 (54.55) 3992.73 (0–29880)
13–24 11/12 (91.67) 10466.67 (0–38360)
25–36 10/13 (76.92) 5873.85 (0–29680)
37–48 9/12 (75.00) 10083.33 (0–47120)
P NSb NSc
  1. a Geometric mean P. falciparum density in each age group. b NS = not significant. P < 0.05 considered significant, as determined by χ2 test for homogeneity across age groups. c NS = not significant. P < 0.05 considered significant, as determined by analysis of variance (ANOVA) of log-transformed P. falciparum density across age groups.
