Prevalence and genetic variants of G6PD deficiency among two Malagasy populations living in P. vivax-endemic areas.

Abstract:

Background

The prevalence and variants of G6PD deficiency in the P. vivax-endemic zones of Madagascar remain unknown. The admixed African-Austronesian origins of the Malagasy population make it probable that a heterogeneous mix of genetic variants with a spectrum of clinical severity will be circulating. This would have implications for the widespread use of P. vivax radical cure therapy. Two study populations in the P. vivax-endemic western foothills region of Madagascar were se...
