Figure 2

Endotoxin levels and cytokine concentrations in children with increased plasma -concentration of I-FABP. Shown are scatter plots of endotoxin EAA Unit (A) and plasma cytokine concentration (B) in children with malaria and plasma I-FABP concentration above or below 183 pg/ml. Differences in the plasma cytokine concentration in children with or without increased plasma I-FABP were determined using Mann Whitney U tests and significant differences are indicated with p<0.001 for IL6 and IL10 (**) and p<0.05 for TGFβ (*). Horizontal bars represent the median.
