Splenic Fc receptor function in host defense and anemia in acute Plasmodium falciparum malaria.

Abstract:

To determine splenic Fc receptor function in patients with acute Plasmodium falciparum malaria, the clearance of IgG-coated autologous 51Cr-labeled erythrocytes in 20 patients and 10 normal controls was studied. Clearance half-times were directly correlated with both the absolute parasite count (r = .635, P less than .005) and hematocrit (r = .791, P less than .001). Clearance half-times in patients varied from 1.0 to 96.3 h (median, 14.8 h) while those of controls ranged from 8.0 to 80.3 h (...
