Antibody-dependent red cell removal during P. falciparum malaria: the clearance of red cells sensitized with an IgG anti-D.
The clearance of autologous red cells sensitized with an IgG anti-D has been studied in patients during and after an attack of P. falciparum malaria, and in 11 uninfected control subjects. In most patients with P. falciparum malaria there was evidence of increased clearance of sensitized red cells, compared to controls. Clearance half-times of IgG sensitized red cells were significantly decreased (P less than 0.01) in 16 patients with acute falciparum malaria (median 21 min, range 11-53 min) ...Expand abstract
