Plasma levels of Filariasis composite antigen specific IgM in Loa loa microfilaraemia positive and negative ARV naïve HIV-1 infected people compared to seronegative people. As shown in (a) & (b) loa loa microfilaraemia results in significantly (P < 0.001) higher plasma levels of IgM in both HIV-1 negative and positive individuals (compare HIV/MF+ with HIV+/MF+). In (c) a comparative statistically analysis is made between the four groups with respect to plasma levels of their Filariasis composite antigen specific IgM. In (c) a slight but insignificant reduction (P < 0.115) is observed in plasma levels of antigen specific IgM in Loa loa microfilaraemic ARV naïve HIV infected people. Statistical analysis was done with prism graph path 6.0, unpaired t test, Mann-Whitney-U tests and Kruskal-Wallis test
