Clinical Trial to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Sodium Stibogluconate (SSG) and AmBisome® Combination, Miltefosine and AmBisome® and Miltefosine Alone for the Treatment Visceral Leishmaniasis in Eastern Africa

2014-08-27 03:15:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is to assess if shorter combinations of SSG plus single dose AmBisome®, Miltefosine plus single dose AmBisome® and Miltefosine alone are effective in treating visceral leishmaniasis in Eastern Africa.

Description

The current study intends to look at potential feasible short course combination therapies as well as evaluate (and possibly register) miltefosine in its conventional dose against VL in Sudan and Kenya.
