Figure 3

The effect of cytokines in white blood cell aggregation mediated by Plasmodium vivax paroxysm plasma. Plasmas obtained from non-immune Plasmodium vivax – infected patients (n = 6) during a paroxysm (PP) were tested in the cell aggregation assay following depletion and then reconstitution of that cytokine. The untreated paroxysm plasmas (PP) and normal human plasmas (NHP) were used as positive and negative controls. The bars indicate the median values of the data series together with the interquartile range (25%–75%).
