Haptoglobin genotypes are not associated with resistance to severe malaria in The Gambia

Aucan, C; Walley, AJ; Greenwood, BM; Hill, AVS; (2002) Haptoglobin genotypes are not associated with resistance to severe malaria in The Gambia. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 96 (3). pp. 327-8. ISSN 0035-9203 DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0035-9203(02)90114-8

The influence of haptoglobin polymorphisms on severe malaria occurrence was assessed in 1183 individuals from The Gambia. No significant association was found between severe malaria and either haptoglobin genotypes or phenotypes. The advantages of using a deoxyribonucleic acid-based haptoglobin typing method are discussed.
