The purpose of this study is to determine whether repeated courses of sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) in combination with azithromycin given at Antenatal Clinic, leads to lower rates of low birth weight deliveries (<2.5 kg) among Papua New Guinean women, than the current standard treatment of SP and chloroquine.

Randomized controlled prospective comparative study
The project is a three-armed study designed to evaluate the efficacy of amodiaquine(AQ), sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine(SP) and(AQ+SP) in three sites in Cameroon that differ in their baseline ...
Chloroquine resistant falciparum malaria in Pakistan is prevalent in every malarious area examined. Resistance to the favoured second-line treatment, sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine S/P is risi...
Malaria in pregnancy is potentially fatal to both the mother and the foetus particularly in the primigravidae. Implementation of appropriate control and preventive measures is challenged b...
The primary objective is to confirm the hypothesis that azithromycin (optimal dose once daily for three days) plus chloroquine is non-inferior to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine plus chloroquine...
To compare the effectiveness of mefloquine and sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine as intermittent preventive therapy for malaria among pregnant women with HIV.
Sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine resistance threatens efficacy of intermittent preventive treatment of malaria during pregnancy, and alternative regimens need to be identified. With the return of chloroquine...
In 2005, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) switched to artesunate/amodiaquine as the first-line antimalarial in response to increasing sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine resistance and adopted intermi...
Rabies virus transmits from animals to humans and causes encephalitis. Every year more than 15 million people receive a post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) treatment that is highly effective in the preven...
Malaria in pregnancy is prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa. The first trimester of pregnancy is a critical period and the best preventive measure is Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLIN). Unfortunately, ...
One of the FOLIC ACID ANTAGONISTS that is used as an antimalarial or with a sulfonamide to treat toxoplasmosis.
One of the short-acting SULFONAMIDES used in combination with PYRIMETHAMINE to treat toxoplasmosis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and in newborns with congenital infections.
A pyrimidine inhibitor of dihydrofolate reductase, it is an antibacterial related to PYRIMETHAMINE. The interference with folic acid metabolism may cause a depression of hematopoiesis. It is potentiated by SULFONAMIDES and the TRIMETHOPRIM-SULFAMETHOXAZOLE COMBINATION is the form most often used. It is sometimes used alone as an antimalarial. TRIMETHOPRIM RESISTANCE has been reported.
A sulfone active against a wide range of bacteria but mainly employed for its actions against MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE. Its mechanism of action is probably similar to that of the SULFONAMIDES which involves inhibition of folic acid synthesis in susceptible organisms. It is also used with PYRIMETHAMINE in the treatment of malaria. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p157-8)
A semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic structurally related to ERYTHROMYCIN. It has been used in the treatment of Mycobacterium avium intracellulare infections, toxoplasmosis, and cryptosporidiosis.
