Biomarker levels between women with P. falciparum infected placentas versus women with uninfected placentas at time of delivery. Box plots presenting the median (horizontal lines), IQR (boxes), adjacent values (whiskers) and outliers (dots). p values from regression analyses with robust variance estimators are given; trim = trimester; Samples from women with placentas with parasitized erythrocytes (acute/chronic, n = 11) were compared with samples from women with placentas without parasitized erythrocytes (past/no infection, n = 119). For sTNF-RII these numbers were n = 9 for acute/chronic and n = 109 for past/no infection and for sFlt-1 n = 9 for acute/chronic and n = 101 for past/no infection. Pf = P. falciparum infection
