  1. Within each study, there were no significant differences in responses to Untreated nets and PermaNet 2.0 or Olyset ITNs: Study 1: X2 (1, n = 86) = 0.89, p = 0.35, OR = 0.61, 95% CI = 0.22–1.72); Study 2: (1, n = 75) = 2.57, p = 0.11, OR = 0.77, 95% CI = 0.37–1.58); Study 3 (Kisumu) (1, n = 59) = 1.77, p = 0.18, OR = 0.79, 95% CI = 0.35–1.76) and Study 3 (Tiassalé) (1, n = 63) = 0.25, p = 0.617, OR = 0.91, 95% CI = 0.41–2.01)
