Fig. 6

Cumulative distributions of egg reduction rates among children infected with Schistosoma haematobium following treatment with praziquantel. Cumulative distributions (black lines) are constructed from the posterior distributions of the fixed and random effects components of egg reduction rates estimated from the Bayesian conditional mixed models. Distributions are depicted by country, age group and sex in panels a, b and c respectively. In all panels, covariates not indicated in the legend are set to their baseline levels, i.e. male younger school-aged children from Côte d’Ivoire followed up after 21 days, see Table 4. Grey shaded areas depict 95 % Bayesian credible intervals
