Table 1 Differential immunoblot pattern of low-molecular weight (< 70 kDa) parasite antigens detected by cytophilic antibodies

From: Distinct patterns of blood-stage parasite antigens detected by plasma IgG subclasses from individuals with different level of exposure to Plasmodium falciparum infections

Plasma samples Number of bands detected (Median and interquartile range)
Groups Composition IgG1 IgG3
A Adult Danish travelers 5.0 (4.0-6.0)c 6.0 (3.0 - 8.0)f
B Ghanaian children (0-5 yr) 5.5 (2.0-8.0)b 4.0 (3.0 5.0)e
C Ghanaian children (6-10 yr) 6.5 (6.0-8.0)a 8.5 (4.5 - 13.5)d
D Adult Liberians 9.0 (6.5-12.5) 14 (10.0 - 15.0)
  1. Comparing IgG1 reactivity: a D vs. C, P = 0.121, D vs. Bb, P = 0.094, and D vs. Ac, P = 0.009. Comparing IgG3 reactivity: d D vs. C, P = 0.157, D vs. Be, P = 0.006, and D vs. Af, P = 0.010. P-values are based on Wilcoxons rank sum test with correction for ties.
