Abstract

<p>sEng levels measured in peripheral plasma samples from study participants were peripheral blood-smear negative at all study visits, shown as <i>(A)</i> all gravidities together, and <i>(B)</i> split into primigravidae (PG) and multigravidae (MG). <i>(C)</i> Levels of sEng from all study participants split into those with <i>P. falciparum</i> infection detected at one or more antenatal visit or at delivery (Malaria) or blood-smear negative at all study visits (Uninfected). Multi-order polynomial non-linear regression curves with the best fits to the data are depicted to illustrate the effect trends in peripheral sEng levels throughout gestation.</p
