Theory predicts that the slope of PfPR in young children (i.e. b) and the PfPR in older children (i.e. the plateau, P') should be correlated. The best-fit parameters describing these two quantities are plotted here. Two extreme values were excluded from this plot. There was no correlation with (p = 0.23) or without (p = 0.56) the extreme values.
