From: Antibody responses to the merozoite surface protein-1 complex in cerebral malaria patients in India

  HC MM CMa
Total No. of samples for IgG 19 46 56
Total No. of samples for subclasses 18 49 53
No. of males used for total IgG 5 20 18
No. of males used for subclasses 4 28 36
No. of females used for total IgG 14 26 38
No. of females used for subclasses 14 21 17
Median age for samples used for total IgG (yr) 30.0 18.5 22.0
Median age for samples used for subclasses (Yr) 27.0 19.0 22.0
Median parasitaemia (parasite/μl) of samples used for total IgG N/A 1,507 960
Median parasitaemia (parasite/μl) of samples used for subclasses N/A 1,413 987
  1. The demographic and parasitological characteristics of the study participants are shown. A total of 121 samples were used for the total IgG assay and 120 for the IgG subclasses assay. HC = healthy controls, MM = mild malaria and CM = cerebral malaria. Seven patients in the CM group died of CM. Both age and parasitaemia data are represented as median. a CM patients include seven patients who died of CM
