Antimalarial Treatments for Clearing Low Density P. Falciparum and Its Impact on Malaria Transmission

2014-08-27 03:31:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum remains at sub-patent level throughout the dry season in areas of seasonal malaria transmission. Targeting this parasite reservoir before the transmission season could be a good strategy for malaria control. We are conducting a randomized double blind placebo controlled mass drug administration trial in eight village to clear the dry season low level parasitaemia with an ultimate aim of controlling malaria in eastern Sudan.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Products in capsule, tablet or liquid form that provide essential nutrients, such as a vitamin, an essential mineral, a protein, an herb, or similar nutritional substance. (FDA Backgrounder, June 15, 1993, p2)

A long acting sulfonamide that is used, usually in combination with other drugs, for respiratory, urinary tract, and malarial infections.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.

One of the FOLIC ACID ANTAGONISTS that is used as an antimalarial or with a sulfonamide to treat toxoplasmosis.
