Distribution of positive results from the classic enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot for lentil-lectin purified glycoprotein for antibodies against Taenia solium cysticerci by age category among US-bound refugees from A) Burma (Myanmar), p = 0.65; B) Laos (Hmong), p = 0.04; C) Burundi, p = 0.56; and D) Bhutan, p = 0.12. Black lines represent seroprevalence estimates across age categories; grey lines represent upper and lower bounds of the corresponding 95% CI. Two-sided p values were deter

Distribution of positive results from the classic enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot for lentil-lectin purified glycoprotein for antibodies against Taenia solium cysticerci by age category among US-bound refugees from A) Burma (Myanmar), p = 0.65; B) Laos (Hmong), p = 0.04; C) Burundi, p = 0.56; and D) Bhutan, p = 0.12. Black lines represent seroprevalence estimates across age categories; gray lines represent upper and lower bounds of the corresponding 95% CI. Two-sided p values were determined by using likelihood ratio χ2.
