Table 1 Parameters used for the probabilistic constraints for sensitivity and specificity of the different diagnostic tests using the 95 % confidence intervals reported in key papers

From: Taenia solium taeniosis/cysticercosis and the co-distribution with schistosomiasis in Africa

Test Disease Sensitivity (%) Specificity (%) Reference
