Table 3 Comparison of outcome measures in children enrolled in the PRET trial at baseline, in annual MDA versus single MDA trial arms (aged 3 to 4 years)

From: Anthropometric indices of Gambian children after one or three annual rounds of mass drug administration with azithromycin for trachoma control

  1. OR = odds ratio, CI = confidence interval.
  2. * adjusted for latrine access, time to water, and district. P-values are from random effects linear regression models.
  3. † adjusted for latrine access, time to water and district. P-values are from comparing random effects logistic regression models with and without trial arm.
