Table 4 Percentages of γδ T cells phenotypes among Fulani and Mossi ethnic groups at two time points of malaria transmission season

From: Haematological parameters, natural regulatory CD4 + CD25 + FOXP3+ T cells and γδ T cells among two sympatric ethnic groups having different susceptibility to malaria in Burkina Faso

  Low transmission season High transmission season
  Fulani ethnic group (12) Mossi ethnic group (17) P ** value Fulani ethnic group (37) Mossi ethnic group (58) P ** value
