Linear regression between reactivity to the malarial antigens AMA1, MSP1-19, MSP3 and 3D7 lysate and erythrocyte invasion inhibition. Invasion inhibition activities of the antibodies, as well as specific antibody concentration in the plasma samples were estimated. The correlation of the data sets was estimated using the Spearman’s Rank Correlation Coefficient. The data shown represent the correlation of the invasion inhibition and a the concentration of AMA1-specific antibodies, b the concentration of MSP1-19-specific antibodies, c the concentration of MSP3-specific antibodies and d the concentration of 3D7 lysate-specific antibodies. The lines are the result of a linear fitting. 95 % confidence intervals of the linear fitting model are shown. Respective p values are given
