Abstract

MAT does not have any diagnostic value during the first week, particularly in high endemic areas. The best cut-off to be used will be 1:50 in low endemicity areas during the first week, 1:100 during the second to fourth week and 1:200 in high endemicity regions during the second to fourth weeks.
