Table 4 Percentage positivity of the p2G HAT RDT on cattle sera from the endemic and non-endemic regions (S2)

From: Serological tests for gambiense human African trypanosomiasis detect antibodies in cattle

  Cases (n = 175) Endemic controls (n = 137) Non-endemic controls (n = 121)
% positive (95% CI) Mean band intensity ± SD (+ve’s) % positive (95% CI) Mean band intensity ± SD (+ve’s) % positive (95% CI) Mean band intensity (+ve’s)
p2G RDT 89.1 (83.7–92.9) (n = 156) 2.16 ± 0.94 77.4 (69.7–83.6) (n = 106) 1.69 ± 0.86 2.5 (0.8–7.0) (n = 3) 0.67
Band 1 (ISG65) 86.3 (80.4–90.6) (n = 151) 2.83 ± 1.08 70.1 (61.9–77.1) (n = 96) 2.36 ± 1.16 1.7 (0.5–5.8) (n = 2) 1
Band 2 (rLiTat 1.5) 66.9 (59.6–73.4) (n = 117) 2.10 ± 1.05 62.0 (53.7–69.7) (n = 85) 1.54 ± 0.80 0.8 (0–4.5) (n = 1) 2
  1. Abbreviation: SD standard deviation
  2. Standard deviation is not shown for the endemic control region owing to the small number of positives
