Table 5 Numbers and ratios of homologous and heterologous infections during low and high transmission seasons

From: Molecular and epidemiological characterization of Plasmodium vivax recurrent infections in southern Mexico

Group # Hom #Het Ratio *P-value
PI_LTS 16 8 2.00 0.957
PI_HTS 35 18 1.94
RI<52W 41 9 4.50 0.0001
RI>52W 6 17 0.35  
  1. Hom, homologous infections; Het, heterologous infections;
  2. Ratio, ratio of homologous infection over heterologous infection;
  3. PI_LTS, Primary infection during the low transmission season; PI_HTS, primary.
  4. infection during the high transmission season; RI < 52W, recurrent infection within 52 weeks of the primary infection; RI > 52W, recurrent infection at or after 52 weeks.
  5. following the primary infection.
  6. * Chi-square; IC 95%.
