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

2014-08-27 03:15:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 recommendations for MiP in Latin American countries have been changing rapidly in recent months; currently, either artemether-lumefantrine (AL) or mefloquine-artesunate (MA) is the first line treatment for P. falciparum (depending on country); however, no data exists on the efficacy of these drugs for the treatment of malaria in pregnancy in Latin America to support their use.

We propose a multi-center 2-arm open-label randomized Phase 4 clinical trial to assess safety and efficacy of the present therapies, AL and MA. We hypothesize that the drugs will both be efficacious for use in pregnant women in Brazil.

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.
