In general, the TSR personnel, many of whom were recruited from non endemic areas of the country, were found to have more parasitaemia
than the villagers due to their low levels of immunity.
falciparum infection with a parasitaemia
of > 100 parasites/[micro]l of blood.
The effect on HIV viral load increases with the severity of malaria, whereby patients with fever and high parasitaemia
have a significant increase in viral load.
Activation of the host response in human--Plasmodium falciparum malaria: Relation of parasitaemia
to tumor necrosis factor/cachectin, thrombin-anti-thrombin III, protein C levels.
Univariate analysis showed the association between wasting and malaria parasitaemia
to be not significant (Table 2b) P<0.
Significant, dose-dependent parasitaemia
suppression was witnessed for ELEAB.
2]O had the best clearance with 97% and 94% reduction in parasitaemia
in neonates in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Simultaneously, blood smears were prepared (morning and evening) from tail bleed of mice and parasitaemia
levels were determined.
was inconclusive due to a very low parasitaemia
with only a single ring form identified.
Moreover, sensitivity of this method for detecting low level parasitaemia
is poor (6,7).
Malaria infection was defined as any parasitaemia
(any species) detected in the blood smear.
