Abstract

In total, 129 patients were enrolled in the study. The EBA-175 genotyping showed a prevalence of 67.45% for the F-allele, 27.90% for the C-allele and 4.65% of mixed C+F infection. The distribution of the ABO blood group type showed 59.8% for the O group, 19.7% for the A group, 17.2% for the B group, and 3.3% for the AB group. No correlation was noted between the EBA-175 alleles and either the blood group type or parasitemia.
