  1. *only these marker results were obtained; **msp3α genotype J; N, number of recurrent infections. All markers correspond to csp (circumsporozoite gene), msp3α (merozoite surface protein 3α gene) and MS (microsatellite). Time-interval of homologous paired samples of rare msp3α genotypes (D, E, G, H, J) were within 14 and 52 weeks.
