Fig. 3

Forest plot of the effects of high and low doses of deltamethrin on P. falciparum oocyst infection rates in kdr-L1014S resistant An. gambiae s.s. The plot shows odds ratio (OR) obtained from meta-analysis of data corresponding to 34 experiments (using blood samples from 30 of the 42 volunteers). Only experiments with sample sizes appropriate for the metan procedure calculation were included in the plot (12 experiments had multiple zeros in 2x2 tables and therefore were excluded from the plot). Experiment numbers represent individual volunteers, except when a suffix is used to show more than one experiment per volunteer. For each of the experiments, the OR and 95 % confidence interval (95 % CI) were computed, with OR < 1 indicating lower infection rate of deltamethrin-exposed mosquitoes compared to control. The size of each grey square represents the experiment’s weight and horizontal line indicates 95 % CI. Summary (Mantel-Haenszel pooled) OR estimates for each dose and for all experiments are represented by open diamonds with their lateral tips indicating 95 % confidence limits. The dotted line indicates the overall OR
