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.
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.

The goal of this clinical research study is to compare the effectiveness of liposomal amphotericin B given three times per week , versus liposomal amphotericin B given once per week, versu...
The purpose of this study is to determine the steady state concentrations of inhaled liposomal amphotericin B (Ambisome®) in lung transplant recipients via aerosolized nebulization.
The purpose of this trial is to see which dose of liposomal amphotericin B is the safest when used as a preventer against invasive fungal infection in patients with acute leukaemia who are...
RATIONALE: Liposomal amphotericin B may be effective in controlling fever and granulocytopenia. It is not yet known which regimen of liposomal amphotericin B is more effective in treating ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of micafungin in combination with AmBisome as first-line therapy in the treatment of invasive aspergillosis.
Visceral leishmaniasis is a systemic disease that is potentially severe and endemic in Brazil. It clinically manifests as fever, weight loss, swelling, hepatosplenomegaly, paleness, and edema. In this...
Cryptococcal meningitis (CM) causes 10-20% of HIV-related deaths in Africa. We performed a phase-II non-inferiority trial examining the Early Fungicidal Activity (EFA) of three short-course, high-dose...
A safe and effective short-course treatment regimen for Post Kala Azar Dermal Leishmaniasis (PKDL) is considered essential for achieving and sustaining elimination of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in th...
We examined the in vitro pharmacodynamics and cellular accumulation of the standard anti-leishmanial drugs amphotericin B and miltefosine in intracellular Leishmania donovani amastigote-macrophage dru...
Amphotericin B (AMB) is a polyene macrolide antibiotic used for treating invasive fungal infections. Liposomal AMB (L-AMB) is a lipid dosage form which reduces the side effects and toxicity of the dru...
Macrolide antifungal antibiotic produced by Streptomyces nodosus obtained from soil of the Orinoco river region of Venezuela.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.
Stable sodium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element sodium, but differ in atomic weight. Na-23 is a stable sodium isotope.
A family of membrane proteins that selectively conduct SODIUM ions due to changes in the TRANSMEMBRANE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE. They typically have a multimeric structure with a core alpha subunit that defines the sodium channel subtype and several beta subunits that modulate sodium channel activity.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
