Table 2 Odds ratio for the association between parasite density in placental tissue and the detection of malaria infection by RDTs

From: Accuracy of One Step malaria rapid diagnostic test (RDT) in detecting Plasmodium falciparum placental malaria infection in women living in Yaoundé, Cameroon

  Positive HRP-II based RDT Positive pLDH based RDT
Density of infected red blood cells in the placental tissue 8.9 E+014 [1,272,716–6E+023] p < 0.001 1e40 [8.7 E-055−1e40] p = 0.33
Parity 1.76 [0.93–3.32] p = 0.08 197.5 [0.03–1,315,700] p = 0.24
Mother age 0.87 [0.72–1.05] p = 0.15 0.10 [0.002–3.85] p = 0.25
IPTp usage 0.76 [0.46–1.34] p = 0.36 1.68E−014 [1.24E−045–2.30E+017] p = 0.38
LLINs usage 1.28 [0.55–6.50] p = 0.75 0.00 [1.82 E−012−4951.53] p = 0.31
