Table 2 Association between markers of erythropoiesis and Plasmodium antigens in multiple regression analyses with haemoglobin and test results for parasite derived lactate dehydrogenase (pLDH) and histidine rich protein 2 (HRP2) as explanatory variables.

From: Bone marrow suppression and severe anaemia associated with persistent Plasmodium falciparum infection in African children with microscopically undetectable parasitaemia
