Mean (with standard deviation) OD492 of female (a) and male (b) O. ochengi formazan formation after MTT reduction before and up to 24 months after treatment (from 18 months after the start of treament OD492 is standardised for 10 mm of length). ■ = control, □ = ivermectin, = doramectin. (N.B. The mean OD492 reading for males was first calculated for each nodule and this was then used to calculate the group means given in Figure 1b) Foot notes. (a) Two-way ANOVA for effect of timepoint and treatment group: Interaction effect between group and timepoint p = 0.44; group effect p = 0.62; effect of timepoint p = 0.02. (b) Two-way ANOVA for effect of timepoint and treatment group: Interaction effect between group and timepoint p = 0.69; group effect p = 0.79; effect of timepoint p = 0.02.
