Predicted Mf and Ag prevalence for 6–7 year-old children, prior to MDA (a & b) and 1 year after the required treatment duration (c & d). Antigenaemia is assumed to be detectable if at least one male or female worm is present in the host, but the detection rate increases with the number of adult worms (hypothesis 2). See legend to Fig. 4 for additional information regarding the interpretation of the boxplots
