Duffy binding-like domain (DBL) and cysteine-rich interdomain region (CIDR) domain genes of Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) encode malaria virulence proteins. The variants of these genes have been reported to be associated with severe/complicated malaria. The present study investigated the prevalence and distribution patterns of DBLα0.6/9, DBLα1.1, DBLα1 not var3 genes, DBLα2/α1.1/2/4/7, DBLβ12 & DBLβ3/5, DBLε8, CIDRα1.4, and CIDRα1.6 of P. falciparum isolates along the Thai-Myanmar border.
