Table 6 Effect of resistance on LLIN effectiveness by infection prevalence

From: Impact of long-lasting, insecticidal nets on anaemia and prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum among children under five years in areas with highly resistant malaria vectors

  LLIN use Effect modification of resistance on effectiveness
    Total positive Total tested by microscopy Prevalence of P. f (%) Odds ratio LLIN no use versus use net Odds ratio, low versus high resistance
Low resistance LLINs No 46 124 37.1 (36.3-38.0) 1  
Yes 89 356 25.0 (24.6-25.5) 1.8 (1.1-2.8) p = 0.00 1
High resistance LLINs No 46 166 27.7 (27.0-28.4) 1  
Yes 43 354 12.1 (11.8-12.4) 2.8 (1.7-4.5) p = 0.000 0.4 (0.3 0.6) p = 0.000
