Table 6 ELISA results from the complete 116 sera and two further scarring case-control studies. The three arrayed antigens were tested on the complete set of 116 sera (2006), 231 samples from a previous scarring case-control study in The Gambia (1995) and a subsequent scarring case-control study in The Gambia (2011). CT442 showed no association with the absence of scarring, and CT667/CT706 were not associated with scarring
