Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Children are randomised within strata of age (<6 years or >=6 years) and site or enrolment. They are subsequently allocated to the next treatment regimen on a list, which was previously generated, in random order, at a remote site (Queensland Institute of Medical Research). The method of randomisation was permutated block design by computer generation.
