Age-specific patterns of DBLα var diversity can explain why residents of high malaria transmission areas remain susceptible to Plasmodium falciparum blood stage infection throughout life

We characterized age-specific patterns of P. falciparum variant antigen gene diversity in residents of a highly endemic setting in Bongo, Ghana and used these data to simulate the development of variant-specific immunity over an individuals lifetime.
