Not surprisingly, in vitro rosetting is more pronounced in parasite strains derived from patients with severe disease, particularly in cases of cerebral malaria.
Several mechanisms facilitate this persistence, including antigenic variation, binding of factor H, and rosetting of erythrocytes (25-27).
