Repeat Ivermectin Mass Drug Administrations for MALaria Control II

2019-06-03 23:49:14 | BioPortfolio


RIMDAMAL II is a double-blind, cluster randomized trial in Burkina Faso designed to test whether repeated ivermectin mass drug administrations, integrated into a monthly delivery platform with standard malaria control measures of seasonal malaria chemoprevention and insecticide-treated bed net distribution in the Sahel, will reduce childhood malaria incidence.


The RIMDAMAL II trial is designed to determine the efficacy of adding seasonal ivermectin mass drug administrations to the standard-policy malaria control measures in the Sahel (seasonal malaria chemoprevention in children, maximum long-lasting insecticidal net coverage, intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy), for reducing the incidence of uncomplicated malaria episodes in enrolled village children (≤ 10 years of age) assessed by active case surveillance. The investigators will also examine the safety of the intervention, as well as entomological and parasitological endpoints. This is a double-blind, cluster randomized trial in that will occur in villages in southwestern Burkina Faso over two consecutive rainy seasons. For the intervention, mass administration of ivermectin or placebo will be given monthly over 4 months of each rainy season to the eligible village population, each as 3-day course of 300 µg/kg/day. These mass drug administrations will occur simultaneously with the distribution of seasonal malaria chemoprevention drugs on the same monthly schedule to eligible children aged 3-59 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM. This is the severest form of malaria and is associated with the highest levels of parasites in the blood. This disease is characterized by irregularly recurring febrile paroxysms that in extreme cases occur with acute cerebral, renal, or gastrointestinal manifestations.

A protozoan parasite that occurs naturally in the macaque. It is similar to PLASMODIUM VIVAX and produces a type of malaria similar to vivax malaria (MALARIA, VIVAX). This species has been found to give rise to both natural and experimental human infections.
