TGF-β1 transcripts quantification in malaria patients and asymptomatic controls TGF-β1 transcripts were quantified without stimulation and after 22 hours of LPS stimulation of PBMC harvested from asymptomatic controls (n = 5) and from patients suffering from acute malaria (n = 20). Results are normalised for one million copies of β2-microglobulin. Whiskers indicate data range, boxes extend from the 25th to the 75th percentile and the horizontal lines show the median. Asterisk indicates significant higher value in malaria patients compared to asymptomatic controls (p = 0.036) in the capacity of response to LPS.
