(%): number of samples (percentage); TR: Years of residence in endemic area; TRO: Years of residence in Rondonia; LME: Months since last malaria episode and PME: number of past malaria episodes. The variables Age, TR, TRO, LME and PME, values are expressed as Median (25%–75%). Differences were calculated using a TukeyHSD from a permutation based ANOVA. Differences of parasitemia between Coinfected and Malaria group were calculated using a permutation test. adifferences between indicated group and Intestinal parasites; bdifferences between indicated group and Uninfected. Statistical differences of epidemiological parameters were expressed as , , .
