Age-specific prevalence of antibody to a synthetic peptide of the circumsporozoite protein of Plasmodium falciparum in children from three villages in Kenya.

Abstract

The presence of antibody to the repeating epitope of the circumsporozoite protein of Plasmodium falciparum was determined in children 1 month to 10 years old from three villages in western Kenya using the synthetic peptide (PNAN)5 in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The percentage of antibody-positive children increased with age and differed in the… (More)
