Table 4 Predictors of parasite density and maternal haemoglobin level

From: Recent uptake of intermittent preventive treatment during pregnancy with sulfadoxine–pyrimethamine is associated with increased prevalence of Pfdhfr mutations in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso

Maternal outcome Adjusted coefficient (95% CI) P value
Log10 of parasite density (parasite/μl)   
 Primigravida 0.35 (0.08 to 0.62)a 0.011
 Early IPTp-SP 0.30 (−0.01 to 0.60)a 0.05
Haemoglobin level (g/dl)   
 Living in Kua 0.90 (0.24 to 1.55)b 0.008
