maternally transmitted antibodies to pregnancy-associated variant antigens on the surface of erythrocytes infected with plasmodium falciparum: relation to child susceptibility to malaria.the consequences of pregnancy-associated malaria on a child's health have been poorly investigated. malarial infection of the placenta seems to result in a higher susceptibility of children to the parasite during their first year of life. in 1993-1995, the authors investigated the role of antibodies in variable surface antigens (vsa) specific to chondroitin sulfate a (csa)-binding parasites to assess the parasitologic status of the child. flow cytometry was used to measure levels of antibodies t ...200312543619
