This study aims to determine the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, acceptability, and feasibility of targeted delivery of a package of malaria interventions for improving effective coverage and reducing Plasmodium falciparum malaria transmission among malaria high-risk populations in Northern Namibia. Previous research identified cattle herders and agricultural workers as populations at higher risk of infection. The investigators hypothesize that targeted delivery of intervent...
This is a cluster randomised controlled trial with factorial study design comparing the impact of reactive community-based malaria interventions: 1) presumptive treatment (or TPE, targeted parasite elimination) versus reactive case detection (RACD), and 2) reactive IRS (indoor residual spraying) versus control on the incidence of malaria in Namibia.
HIV and malaria are major causes of morbidity and mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa and children bear the greatest brunt of both diseases. No single existing intervention is likely to control malaria in Africa. Rather, improvements in malaria prevention are likely to come from strategies that employ multiple proven interventions targeting different populations. HIV-infected children represent one of the most vulnerable subpopulations in these countries. It is possible that the u...
In the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) adults are at highest risk for malaria. The most relevant disease vectors bite during daytime and outdoors which makes forest work a high-risk activity for malaria. The absence of effective vector control strategies and limited periods of exposure during forest visits suggest that chemoprophylaxis could be an appropriate strategy to protect forest workers against malaria. The investigators propose the use of Artemether-lumefantrine (AL), a...
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the use of (1) 'malaria prevalence', (2) 'malaria incidence' and (3) 'malaria mortality' as a measure of malaria transmission in The Gambia, while mosquito insecticides (larvicides) are used to control malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Two thousand children aged 6 months to 10 years of age will be recruited from villages in the study area. They will be monitored over 7 months for the presence of malaria parasites and signs and symptom...
This study is an open-label, single site, randomized controlled trial comparing protease inhibitor (PI)-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) to non-PI based ART for HIV-infected pregnant and breastfeeding women of all CD4 cell counts at high risk of malaria. The study is designed to test the hypothesis that pregnant women receiving a PI-based ART regimen will have lower risk of placental malaria compared to pregnant women receiving a non-PI based ART regimen. The primary study en...
This study assesses the effectiveness of targeted active case detection among high-risk populations in Southern Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (PDR). The investigators hypothesize that active case detection using the next generation of HRP-2 rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) can help bridge gaps in identification of high-risk asymptomatic individuals with low density parasitemia, allowing for targeting of this reservoir and thereby reducing transmission. The investigators hypothes...
This study will be the first time that the candidate malaria vaccine Apical Membrane Antigen 1 (PfAMA-1-FVO[25-545]) will be tested in malaria endemic populations. The phase Ib study will include adults who will be randomly allocated to either receive the malaria vaccine or the vaccine against Tetanus. Each participant will receive 3 immunizations, without the clinical investigators or the participants themselves knowing what has been given. They will then be follow-up up for i...
Malaria is the most widespread parasitic illness in the world, and it is endemic to Guiana. Although the number of cases has decreased since 2005, sources of infection still remain, particularly within illegal gold mines. These malaria carriers/sufferers often use self-medication to deal with malaria symptoms, resulting in a risk of resistance to anti-malarial treatments, and particularly to artemisinine. The mobility of this population across the Guiana Shield increases both t...
To determine whether two cheap antifolates (chlorproguanil-dapsone and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine) which work against falciparum malaria in this region are sufficiently effective against vivax malaria to be deployed in areas where diagnosis is poor and the burden of malaria is high, a randomised controlled trial of the three drugs is being undertaken comparing their efficacy in treating malaria.
We wish to understand how resistance to malaria develops and how this affects the growth rate of malaria in individuals who have past exposure to malaria.
In countries of the Sahel and sub-Sahel, malaria transmission is highly seasonal with nearly all infections occurring during a few months of the year. However, mortality and morbidity from malaria may be high during this period, especially in young children who are the group most at risk. Intermittent preventative treatment (IPT) is a new approach to the prevention of malaria in this situation. IPT involves the administration of an anti-malarial to children at risk for ...
The purpose of this study is to study the effectiveness of wide scale RDT use at the primary health care level in previously high malaria endemic area during malaria pre-elimination phase for improved targeting of anti-malarial drugs, malaria surveillance and epidemic alertness.
In malaria-endemic areas, young children have an especially high risk of malaria morbidity and mortality. Malaria is estimated to cause up to 2 million deaths and 500 million clinical episodes in Africa alone. The bulk of disease in Africa and severe disease and deaths globally is due to P. falciparum. However, P. vivax is also responsible for a substantial disease burden in endemic regions outside Africa, where P. vivax may account for more than half of all malaria cases. Eff...
Purpose of the study is to determine whether LSA-1/AS02A combination malaria vaccine is effective at preventing malaria.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of two interventions in Malawian children with cerebral malaria at high risk of death. One-third of the participants will receive treatment as usual, one-third will receive treatment as usual and be placed on a mechanical ventilator, and one-third will receive treatment as usual plus intravenous hypertonic saline.
In western Kenya the prevalence of malaria in
A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Immunogenicity and Efficacy of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' Candidate Malaria Vaccine RTS,S/AS02A, When Administered to Children Aged 1 to 4 Years Living in a Malaria-Endemic Region of Mozambique.
Malaria is an important cause of death and serious illness among Mozambican children. Although the risk of malaria can be reduced by drugs and by impregnated bed nets, it would be helpful if children could be protected against malaria by a vaccine. GSK Biologicals is developing in partnership with Malaria Vaccine Initiative at PATH a candidate malaria vaccine RTS,S/AS02 for the routine immunization of infants and children living in malaria endemic areas. The vaccine would offe...
The goal of this study is to develop a safe, well tolerated, and highly efficacious azithromycin combination treatment for uncomplicated falciparum malaria. Azithromycin is a drug that has shown potential for malaria treatment. It will be combined with other malaria drugs currently approved for treatment in Thailand. About 120 people, ages 20-65, will be enrolled in Thailand. Participants will have severe cases of malaria and they will be hospitalized 28 days for treatment.
Malaria is the most important human parasitic disease and is responsible of high morbidity and mortality in resource-poor countries. Pregnant women, who are a high-risk group, are almost always excluded from clinical trials; thus, the investigators lack sufficient information on the safety and efficacy of most antimalarials in pregnancy. The recommendation of the World Health Organization to use artemisinin combination therapy (ACT) in the 2nd and 3rd trimester is already imple...
This is a study in which healthy adult volunteers will be given either an experimental Malaria vaccine or a saline control vaccine. Each volunteer will receive three vaccinations in total. Volunteers will be randomly allocated to one of three groups: Group 1 will receive a low dose of the Malaria vaccine on days 0, 28, and 56. Group 2 will receive a high dose of the Malaria vaccine on days 0, 28, and 56. Group 3 will receive a saline solution on days 0, 28, and 56.
The purpose of the study is to determine whether LSA-1/AS01B combination malaria vaccine is effective at preventing malaria.
The main purpose of this trial is to study whether a certain blood test can reliably identify the presence of malaria in people who have been infected with, but who do not have symptoms of malaria.
Prevention of malaria in pregnancy is critical given the high incidence of malaria in Zambia and its serious impact on both maternal and infant survival. Intermittent presumptive treatment with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine has been shown to be highly efficacious for reducing the risk of malaria in pregnancy. However, based on a study done in western Kenya, HIV-infected pregnant women may need more frequent dosing of SP, i.e., on a monthly basis rather than the standard 2-dose regi...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Malarone ®, which is a drug approved to prevent malaria when taken daily, will still effectively prevent malaria if taken weekly.
