The numerical distributions of parasite densities in asymptomatic malaria
Background. Asymptomatic parasitemia is common even in areas of low seasonal malaria transmission, but the true proportion of the population infected has not been estimated previously because of the limited sensitivity of available detection methods. Methods. Cross-sectional malaria surveys were conducted in areas of low seasonal transmission on the Northwestern Thailand-Myanmar border and in Western Cambodia. Using an ultra- sensitive PCR DNA quantitation m... Expand abstract
