Evaluation of C-reactive protein and haptoglobin as malaria episode markers in an area of high transmission in Africa.

Abstract

Field studies of malaria in endemic areas frequently use the presence or levels of parasitaemia, together with the measurement of fever, as the primary criteria with which to identify cases. However, since malaria cases do not always present with measurable fever, and since asymptomatic parasitaemia occurs, additional episode markers might be useful… (More)
