Relative levels of VSA specific IgG to heterologous P.falciparum isolates according to the clinical origin of the P. falciparum isolates, and to the plasma group. PG: primigravidae, MG: multigravidae. Errors bars indicate standard errors. Groups were compared all together by ANCOVA (*** P <.0005, * P <.05, ns. non significant), and two factor ANOVA (§§§ P < .0005, §§ P < .005, § P < .05).

Figure 1: Relative levels of VSA specific IgG to heterologous P.falciparum isolates according to the clinical origin of the P. falciparum isolates, and to the plasma group. PG: primigravidae, MG: multigravidae. Errors bars indicate standard errors. Groups were compared all together by ANCOVA (*** P <.0005, * P <.05, ns. non significant), and two factor ANOVA (§§§ P < .0005, §§ P < .005, § P < .05).

Mentions: The levels of clonality were similar in isolates from all clinical origins. In healthy adults and children presenting UM, VSAUM antibody levels were higher than VSACM antibody levels (Figure 1). In both PAM plasma groups (primigravidae and multigravidae), antibody levels against the three types of isolates were similar. One month after infection the level of anti-VSA antibodies able to recognize heterologous VSACM variants was increased in CM patients. In UM patients, antibody levels directed against heterologous VSAUM were similar during the infection and one month later (Figure 2).
