Ototoxicity of Artemether / Lumefantrine (Coartem) and Other Antimalarials

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the potential side-effects of artemether / lumefantrine and other antimalarials on the auditory function.

Randomised Trial of 3 Artemisinin Combination Therapy for Malaria in Pregnancy

This is a randomised, open label trial, comparing standard dose of dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DP) with standard fixed artesunate-mefloquine regimen (MAS3) and with a longer regimen of...

In Vivo Efficacy of Artemether-Lumefantrine and Artesunate-Amodiaquine for Uncomplicated P. Falciparum Malaria

This study was designed to determine the efficacy of both artemether-lumefantrine and artesunate-amodiaquine (but not to compare the efficacies of the two drugs) for the treatment of uncom...

Efficacy of Artemisinin Combination Therapies for the Treatment of Uncomplicated P. Falciparum in Pregnancy in Brazil

Data on the burden of MIP in low transmission areas, such as Latin America, are very limited; there is even less information on the efficacy of case management of MiP. The treatment recom...

Drug-free holidays: Compliance, tolerability, and acceptability of a 3-day atovaquone/proguanil schedule for pre-travel malaria chemoprophylaxis in Australian travellers.

Poor compliance with chemoprophylaxis is a major contributing factor to the risk of malaria in travellers. Pre-travel chemoprophylaxis may improve compliance by enabling 'drug-free holidays'. The stan...

Artemether-lumefantrine dosing for malaria treatment in young children and pregnant women: A pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic meta-analysis.

The fixed dose combination of artemether-lumefantrine (AL) is the most widely used treatment for uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Relatively lower cure rates and lumefantrine levels have b...

Brief Report: Antimalarial Benefit of HIV Antiretroviral Therapy in Areas of Low to Moderate Malaria Transmission Intensity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A biguanide compound which has little antimalarial activity until metabolized in the body to the active antimalarial agent cycloguanil. The usefulness of proguanil is limited by the rapid development of drug resistance by the malarial parasite. The hydrochloride is used for the casual prophylaxis of falciparum malaria, to suppress other forms of malaria, and to reduce transmission of infection (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p405)

A biguanide compound which metabolizes in the body to form cycloguanil, an anti-malaria agent.

Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM VIVAX. This form of malaria is less severe than MALARIA, FALCIPARUM, but there is a higher probability for relapses to occur. Febrile paroxysms often occur every other day.

Vaccines made from antigens arising from any of the four strains of Plasmodium which cause malaria in humans, or from P. berghei which causes malaria in rodents.

A protozoan parasite that causes vivax malaria (MALARIA, VIVAX). This species is found almost everywhere malaria is endemic and is the only one that has a range extending into the temperate regions.
