Table 3 OptiMAL-IT performance during different malaria transmission seasons

From: Seasonal performance of a malaria rapid diagnosis test at community health clinics in a malaria-hyperendemic region of Burkina Faso

RDT Low malaria transmission season (95% CI) High malaria transmission season (95% CI) P Overall (95% CI)
Sensitivity (%) 74.9(70.9-78.5) 92.9(91.5-94.1) 0.001 88.2(86.7-89.6)
Specificity (%) 87.5(84.8-89.9) 77.2(73.4-80.8) 0.001 83.1(80.9-85.2)
PPV (%) 81.8(78.0-85.2) 92(90.5-93.3) 0.001 89.6(88.1-90.9)
NPV (%) 82.3(79.3-85.0) 79.4(75.6-82.8) 0.04 81.2(78.9-83.4)
  1. P: P value for comparison between low and high malaria transmission seasons.
  2. PPV: Positive Predictive Value.
  3. NPV: Negative Predictive Value.
