The reduction of erythroid expansion was not significantly greater by intact PV-IE when compared with lysed PV-IE. The inhibition of cell expressing glyphorin A was up to 66.67 % compared with controls.
P. vivax could inhibit erythroid growth and development and this suppression of erythropoiesis by P. vivax infection is plausible to involve in induction of anemia.
