Description

Description of data capture Dried blood spots were collected onto filter paper from a finger-prick blood sample from consenting participants in Laos, Uganda and The Gambia. Samples were allowed to air-dry, then were stored at -20C before being shipped to LSHTM for testing. Samples were eluted overnight and assayed using an-Pgp3 specific ELISA. Data presented are normalised OD values (read at optical density 450)
