  • When we compared women using bed nets and SP IPTp singly and in combination to those using neither, women receiving both interventions had a lower prevalence of peripheral parasitemia, placental parasitemia and LBW than other women.

  • Outcome variables were peripheral parasitemia (detection of parasites in peripheral blood), placental parasitemia (detection of parasites in placental blood), maternal hemoglobin concentration at delivery and anemia, infant's birth weight and LBW.

  • The relationship between IPT use and parasitemia, anemia and low birth weight changed over time.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Changes in rainfall may cause fluctuations in malaria transmission and in the prevalence of parasitemia, but these seemed not to explain the large changes in malaria observed.

  • Association between doses of SP IPTp treatment and prevalence of parasitemia, anemia and LBW.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Using part of this data set we previously reported that SP use was associated with protection against parasitemia, LBW and anaemia

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Peripheral and placental parasitemia prevalence declined from 23.5% to 5.0% and from 25.2% to 6.8% respectively.

  • Changes in prevalence of parasitemia, anemia and LBW due to time, rainfall, gravidity and season doi: 10.1371/journal. pone.0012012.t002

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • We performed multivariable logistic regression, adjusting for the confounders described above, to investigate how the prevalence of maternal peripheral parasitemia, placental parasitemia, maternal anemia and LBW changed over time and how these outcomes varied with SP IPTp and bed net use.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Prevalence of parasitemia, anemia and LBW and monthly rainfall in Chichiri from 1997 to 2006.
