Table 3 Multivariable predictors of gametocyte positivity and density

From: Increased investment in gametocytes in asymptomatic Plasmodium falciparum infections in the wet season

pfs25 positivity aOR P value
log10 Pf copies 0.53 < 0.001
Wet season −0.716 0.002
log10 pfs25 density Coefficient P value
log10 Pf copies 0.246 < 0.001
Wet season 0.42 0.004
  1. Only parasite density (log10 transformed) and season were found to be significant predictors for the probability that an infection was positive for pfs25, and for pfs25 density. aOR = adjusted odds ratio
