Zinc erythrocyte protoporphyrin as marker of malaria risk in pregnancy - a retrospective crosssectional and longitudinal study Full Text
Malaria Journal, 07/31/2012
Senga E et al. – Raised zinc erythrocyte protoporphyrin (ZPP) concentrations in pregnancy were positively associated with P. falciparum parasitaemia and were probably secondary to malaria inflammation, rather than indicating an increased malaria risk with iron deficiency. It was not possible from ZPP measurements alone to determine whether iron deficiency or repletion alters malaria susceptibility in pregnancy.
