From: Association of IL-4 and IL-10 maternal haplotypes with immune responses to P. falciparum in mothers and newborns

Parameters Mothers (peripheral blood) Newborns (cord blood)
Haemoglobin (g/dl) 11.3 (± 1.5) 14.5 (± 2.0)
  mean (± SD) a
Anaemia 224 (39.1) 351 (61.5)
  n (%) b
P. falciparum prevalence 49 (8.5) 5 (0.9)
  n (%) c
Parasite density d 556 (159–9990) 367 (235–1492)
  1. a 3 (5) missing values for mothers (newborns).
  2. b anaemia defined as Hb < 11 g/dl (mothers) and Hb < 15 g/dl (newborns).
