Survival plots - DNA/RNA detection in days after animal infection


Meta-analysis was not performed for this agent/disease

When evidence was available through systematic literature review for a minimum of 4 data points per animal matrix, this evidence was subjected to meta-analysis. In such cases, Kaplan-Meier curves would be fit to the data,in order to estimate confidence intervals (CI) and interquartile ranges (IQ) for the duration of the pathogen survival explicitly taking into account the data censoring issue (lack of information about true maximum when experiments ended while the agent was still detectable).

There was not enough evidence for this disease/pathogen.

The systematic literature reviews are updated regularly (see information in the left panel).
