Table 5 Sensitivity and specificity of OptiMAL-IT in different age groups and 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

Age group (years) Low malaria transmission season (95% CI) High malaria transmission season (95% CI)

  1. P: P value for comparison of sensitivity between seasons; P*: P value for comparison of specificity between malaria transmission seasons.
