Plasma levels of soluble IL-2 receptor (sIL-2R) were measured by immunoassay in 180 individuals, aged 1-70 years, living in a malaria-endemic community in West Africa. sIL-2R levels were compared with age, malaria parasitaemia, malaria-associated morbidity and cellular immune responses to Plasmodium falciparum antigens. Plasma levels of sIL-2R were independently associated with both age and patent malaria parasitaemia. No significant association was observed between IL-2R levels and concurrent… CONTINUE READING
