From: Reduced circulating dendritic cells in acute Plasmodium knowlesi and Plasmodium falciparum malaria despite elevated plasma Flt3 ligand levels

  P. falciparum P. knowlesi IBSM Healthy controls
Number 11 14 33 15
Median age in years [IQR] 42 [23–53] 42 [23–58] 24 [22–27] 44 [20–53]
Female, number (%) 6 (55) 3 (21) 17 (51) 8 (53)
Median parasite densitya (parasites/µl) [IQR] 15,503 [3264–36,977] 2158 [644–14,800] 5.3 [1.3–11.1] NA
  1. No significant difference in parasite density or age between P. falciparum and P. knowlesi patients
  2. IQR interquartile range, IBSM induced blood-stage malaria
  3. aDetermined by PCR for IBSM and by microscopy for all other groups
