Table 2 Association of parasite density with biomarker levels by regression analyses with robust variance estimators

From: Interleukin-10 and soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor II are potential biomarkers of Plasmodium falciparum infections in pregnant women: a case-control study from Nanoro, Burkina Faso

  1. Biomarkers and parasite density are on the log scale. Parasite density was based on microscopy results
  2. Coeff coefficient
  3. aOne log increase in biomarker per one log increase of parasite density
