Table 1 Functional net survivorship rate

From: A phase III trial to evaluate the efficacy, fabric integrity and community acceptance of Netprotect® using a recommended long-lasting insecticidal net as positive control

Survey Net type N Functional survivorship (95% CI)
Year 1 CTN 45 97. 8 (88.4 – 99.6)
Netprotect® 141 96.5 (91.5 – 98.2)
PermaNet® 2.0 143 98.6 (95–99.8)
Year 2 Netprotect® 67 92.5 (83.7 – 96.8)
PermaNet® 2.0 78 98.7 (93.1 – 99.8)
Year 3 Netprotect® 43 58.1 (43.3 – 71.6)
PermaNet® 2.0 49 61.2 (47.2 – 73.6)
  1. Calculated from all the HHs visited at the end of each study year where the net was present or discarded because of being torn or burned (Surveys 4, 6 and 8). HHs where the inhabitants were absent or where the net was recorded as given away, used elsewhere, stolen or lost were not included in the estimates of survivorship.
