Comparison of model predictions of microfilaraemia prevalence by age with observed data, before the start of vector control (1981) in Pondicherry, India. (A) LYMFASIM predictions for models with anti-L3 immunity (solid line), anti-fecundity immunity (dashed line), and a model variant without immunity (dot-dashed line); the latter model did not fit the data and was therefore rejected. Source: . (B) EPIFIL predictions of a model with acquired immunity. Source: . Symbols in both graphs indicate the observed prevalence levels with corresponding confidence intervals.
