The rate of production of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes during natural infections

, : The rate of production of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes during natural infections. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 75.2: 318-319

The production of P. falciparum gametocytes was studied using venous blood from 127 unselected subjects in The Gambia. Compared with infections without mature gametocytes in the peripheral blood (104 subjects), those with mature gametocytes (23 subjects) showed a greater proportion of infections producing immature gametocytes (91% vs. 67%), and a higher conversion rate (7.6 plus or minus 15 vs. 1.3 plus or minus 4).
