Fig. 7

Cumulative distributions of egg reduction rates among children infected with Schistosoma mansoni 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, sex, dose and follow-up days in panels a, b, c, d and e respectively. In all panels, covariates not indicated in the legend are set to their baseline levels, i.e. male younger school-aged children given 40 mg/kg praziquantel from Côte d’Ivoire followed up after 28 days, see Table 4. Grey shaded areas depict 95 % Bayesian credible intervals
