Human candidate gene polymorphisms and risk of severe malaria in children in Kilifi, Kenya: a case-control association study

Abstract : Background Human genetic factors are important determinants of malaria risk. We investigated associations between multiple candidate polymorphisms-many related to the structure or function of red blood cells-and risk for severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria and its specific phenotypes, including cerebral malaria, severe malaria anaemia, and respiratory distress.
