Table 3 Results of logistic mixed effects model analysis to compare malaria infection between the intervention (repellent and LLIN) and control (LLIN only)

From: Effect of combining mosquito repellent and insecticide treated net on malaria prevalence in Southern Ethiopia: a cluster-randomised trial

Variables Adjusted odds ratio (OR) 95% Confidence interval for OR P-value
Sex (male) 0.80 0.57-1.13 0.201
Age group

Time 0.87 0.65-1.16 0.335
Repellent and LLIN (yes) 1.99 1.07-3.71 0.049
Time* repellent and LLIN 0.66 0.45-0.97 0.033
Baseline household LLIN ownership (yes) 0.76 0.53-1.09 0.141
IRS status (yes) 1.26 0.68-2.35 0.474
  1. LLIN = Long lasting insecticidal net, IRS = Indoor residual spraying, OR = Odds Ratio, *Interaction term (Time and repellent/LLIN).
