  • a N′, the number of patients with the specified infection type who had valid body temperature and lesion assessments at baseline and at the specified time point.

  • b Response rate was defined as the no. (%) of patients with an early response on day 3, as defined by resolution or absence of fever (<38°C) at 3 consecutive recordings within the previous 24 h and cessation of spread of lesion from baseline based on acetate tracing sheets or investigator measurements.

  • c Percentages were calculated using N′ as the denominator.

  • d CI, confidence interval. 95% CIs are exact binomial confidence intervals.
