Figure 1

Multiplicity of infection and geometric mean parasite density according to age. Group sizes at ages 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 months: 15, 38, 44, 36, 104. Parasite density declines until 12 months of age and slightly increases thereafter (P = 0.08). IPTi had no effect on parasite density (P = 0.57), at no time (P > 0.4). In multiple, non-parametric ordinal regression analysis, IPTi had no effect on MOI in these children (regression coefficient, -0.33; standard error (SE), 0.33; P = 0.32; age (months), 0.06, SE, 0.06; P = 0.30; log10 parasite density, 0.78, SE, 0.19; P < 0.0001).
