From: Forest malaria in Cambodia: the occupational and spatial clustering of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum infection risk in a cross-sectional survey in Mondulkiri province, Cambodia

  LM positivity
P. vivax P. falciparum
Asexual parasitaemia
Proportion (N) of LM+ samples with detected asexual parasites 100% (37/37) 81.5% (22/27)
Geometric mean [/μl blood] 149.7 431.3
Range [/μl blood] 15.4–22,674.7 14.3–41,724.6
Gametocytaemia
Proportion (N) of LM+ samples with gametocytes 2.7% (1/37) 37.0% (10/27)
Geometric mean [/μl blood] 31.9 51.1
Range [/μl blood] 31.9–31.9 15.6–175.0
