Cluster-randomized test-negative design trials: A novel and efficient method to assess the efficacy of community-level Dengue interventions

Abstract:

Cluster-randomized controlled trials are the gold standard for assessing efficacy of community-level interventions, such as vector-control strategies against dengue. We describe a novel cluster-randomized trial methodology with a test-negative design (CR-TND), which offers advantages over traditional approaches.
