Genetic polymorphisms associated with antimalarial antibody levels in a low and unstable malaria transmission area in southern Sri Lanka Full Text

Dewasurendra RL et al. – Evidence is suggestive of an age–acquired immunity in this study population in spite of low malaria transmission levels. Several SNPs were in linkage disequilibrium and had a significant association with elevated antibody levels, suggesting that these host genetic mutations might have an individual or collective effect on inducing or/and maintaining high anti–malarial antibody levels.
