Por otra parte, la diversidad genetica y la supresion de la proteina rica en histidina 2 (HRP2) pueden afectar la sensibilidad, generando diagnostico falso negativo, especialmente en los casos de Plasmodium falciparum que no presentan HRP2 y HRP3 (dichos cambios se han descrito especialmente en casos de paises como Peru y Papua Nueva Guinea).

Following successful malaria treatment, the HRP2 antigen persists in patients' blood for prolonged periods, resulting in false positives.
"We found that if HRP2 levels are low, clinicians can be more than 98 percent sure the child will not progress to cerebral malaria," Seydel said.

HRP2-based RDTs target parasite HRP2, and some cross-react with HRP3 because of sequence similarities between the 2 proteins.
