Figure 1. Trial profile.. From: Effect of Preventive Supplementation with Zinc and Other Micronutrients on Non-Malarial Morbidity in Tanzanian Pre-School Children: A Randomized Trial.

Compliance was measured as the proportion of children who consumed.95% of scheduled supplements.

Figure 2. Effect of supplementation with zinc (left panel) or multi-nutrients (right panel) on selected morbidity outcomes.. From: Effect of Preventive Supplementation with Zinc and Other Micronutrients on Non-Malarial Morbidity in Tanzanian Pre-School Children: A Randomized Trial.

The effect of zinc was assessed by hazard ratios in the pooled groups receiving zinc (with or without multi-nutrients) versus the pooled groups receiving no zinc (with or without multi-nutrients); the effect of multi-nutrients was assessed by hazard ratios in the pooled groups receiving multi-nutrients versus the pooled groups receiving placebo or zinc. Values between brackets (left) indicate the number of episodes for each illness definition. Horizontal line bars indicate 95% CIs. Estimates are adjusted for age class (indicated by dummies) and distance between homestead and research dispensary (< or ≥4 km); further adjustment for mosquito net use, sex, plasma zinc concentration, iron status or inflammation at baseline did not markedly change the effect estimates.

Figure 3. Subgroup analysis of effects of supplementation with zinc or multi-nutrients on diarrhea (top panels) and fever without localizing signs (bottom panels).. From: Effect of Preventive Supplementation with Zinc and Other Micronutrients on Non-Malarial Morbidity in Tanzanian Pre-School Children: A Randomized Trial.

Effects are indicated by hazard ratios (see Figure 2), with p-values for interaction tests. Values between brackets (left) indicate the number of children in each subgroup. Horizontal line bars indicate 95% CIs. Effects are adjusted for age class, being stunted and distance (< or ≥4 km) unless these factors were used to define subgroups. Because the presence of Giardia infection could not be assessed in 54 children due to missing stool samples, the analysis is based on fewer cases of diarrhea (361) and fever without localizing signs (216) than reported in the text.
