Fig. 5

Egg reduction rates among children infected with schistosomes following treatment with praziquantel. Panels a and b depict, respectively, estimates from children infected with Schistosoma haematobium and S. mansoni. Egg reduction rates are calculated from the empirical best linear unbiased predictors (see Table 1 for definition) estimated from the classical (frequentist) conditional mixed models. Negative estimates of ERRs (a: n = 1, 0.59 %; b: n = 24, 2.4 %), which correspond to an increase in egg counts after treatment compared to before treatment, are not shown
