The Role of Haptoglobin Genotypes in Chagas Disease

Figure 1

Probability estimates for developing chronic Chagas disease in patients with genotypes HP1-1 and HP2-1 + HP2-2 by age. Individuals with HP1-1 genotype are less likely to develop the disease at ages below 50 while individuals with at least one HP2 allele are more likely to present any clinical form of the disease at younger ages.
