Scatter dot plots (a) and aligned dot plots (b) of individual PCTs estimated by linear regression equation (blue dots) and those determined by microscopy (green dots) in the same patient in a cohort of 155 DHP-treated children. The linear regression equation used to estimate PCTs was generated from the relationship between observed PCT and PRRD1 in an initial cohort of 166 DHP-treated children and tested in a later cohort of 155 DHP-treated children prospectively. Horizontal bars in (a) indicate mean and 95% CI.

PCT: Parasite clearance time; PRRD1: Parasite reduction ratio one day post-treatment initiation; DHP: Dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine; CI: Confidence interval
