Schistosomiasis is a flatworm transmitted from freshwater snails to humans in the tropics. In addition to this infectious disease, tropical developing countries are faced with malnutrition. We propose to alter pesticide and compost use to reduce schistosomiasis and maintain or even improve crop production.
The clinical trial phase 2b is designed to assess the safety, the specific immune response and the anti-parasite effect of the active ingredient (protein + adjuvant) in healthy and then in infected school children from 8 to 11 years of age with intestinal and urinary schistosomiasis, living in the Valley of the Senegal River, a highly endemic area for schistosomiasis.
Urinary schistosomiasis is a debilitating disease in Central Africa and pregnant women are frequently suffering from this condition. Mefloquine is currently investigated as preventive treatment against malaria in pregnancy and mefloquine is also known to exert activity against schistosomiasis. The investigators want to test the hypothesis whether mefloquine may active against urinary schistosomiasis when used as preventive treatment against malaria in pregnancy.
Objective and Hypotheses: This project has the overall objective of implementing and evaluating new approaches to reducing the current and future burden of urinary schistosomiasis in young children using the antihelminthic drug praziquantel. The investigators hypotheses are that (1) praziquantel treatment will be as effective in children 1 to 5 years of age (who are routinely excluded from schistosomiasis control programmes) as it is in older 6-10 year old children and (2) two ...
The purpose of this study is to examine the extent of schistosomasis infections in women and children, their daily activites that encumber contact with water and their knowledge and attitudes towards the prevention of schistosomiasis. The hypothesis that will be explored is that women and children spent more time with agricultural and household activities which bring them in contact with water and therefore give them an increased risk of being infected by schistosoma. Preventi...
An open label, randomized controlled trial of single vs. multiple treatments of praziquantel in intestinal African schistosomiasis in Côte d'Ivoire This study aims to determine the efficacy of repeated (up to four times) praziquantel treatment against S. mansoni infection in school-age children from Côte d'Ivoire using the traditional Kato-Katz thick smear technique, but also with more accurate and non-invasive antigen- and DNA-detection methods.
The SchistoSAM study is an open label, two-arm, individually-randomized controlled trial with a non-inferiority design, conducted in northern Senegal. The study aims at determining if the efficacy of one and of repeated courses of artesunate-mefloquine (AM) is respectively similar to or higher than that of a standard praziquantel (PZQ) treatment. Secondly, the study will assess if novel DNA- and antigen-based diagnostics are more accurate than microscopy in assessing antischis...
The primary objective of this project is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of praziquantel 60 mg/kg in the treatment of schistosomiasis, as compared to the standard 40 mg/kg therapy in a representative community from a highly endemic area of schistosomiasis in Northeastern Brazil. Cure rates, reduction in egg counts and proportions of reported side-effects in children at the 10-19 y age-range with at least 100 eggs per gram of faeces will be compared between regimens, aiming ...
Schistosomiasis is a poverty-related water-transmitted parasitic disease affecting more that 200 million people world wide. Infection with Schistosoma haematobium may cause Female Genital Schistosomiasis (FGS) with pathological lesions in the female genital tract, especially the cervix. Findings indicate that FGS is a hitherto under-diagnosed illness of young women in endemic poor tropical countries, deserving further attention. A cross-sectional study from Zimbabwe indicated t...
Senegal plans a rapid scale up of HIV treatment for all people living with HIV, regardless of cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) count or viral suppression. However, limited data exist on how to achieve sustained viral suppression outside of a controlled setting, and with significant barriers to effective antiretroviral therapy delivery, uptake, and adherence. The purpose of this study is to develop and assess the feasibility, fidelity, and cost-effectiveness of a universal cov...
The main purpose of the CoDISEN cohort study is to propose a model of prevention and care for HIV and viral hepatitis adapted to the needs of people who inject drugs (PWID) in Dakar, Senegal.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of a urine test strip in diagnose schistosoma mansoni in areas of Kenya where the rate of infections are low. The hypothesis is that the urine strip test is a superior tool to the conventional parasitological tools used to diagnose schistosomiasis mansoni infections in area where there is low transmission
Schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminhtiasis occur throughout the developing world and are most prevalent in the poorest communitites. These worms have been linked to several nutritional and intellectual deficiencies in many endemic populations worldwide. Helminth control, though crucial has been neglected for varied reasons. Currently, interests towards the control of neglected diseases including schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminths has been revived through man...
Cross-sectional study of prevalence and intensity of schistosome infection in pregnant women, follow-up into postpartum, and the association of schistosome infection with haemoglobin concentration, compared to a group of non-pregnant women.
Female genital schistosomiasis (FGS) is a frequent manifestation of the infection with Schistosoma haematobium or mansoni. FGS is probably the most neglected gynaecological condition in the tropics. Inflammation of genital tissue persists as long as adult worms are present in the circulation, and new eggs are released. Hence, lesions can only heal if the inflammation is abated and a normal immune response is restored A randomized controlled study will be carried out to ...
The aim of this study is to assess the impact of Schistosoma mansoni infection and its treatment on genital immunology and HIV susceptibility in Ugandan women.
Groups of 3 or 7 volunteers will be exposed to a predetermined number of male Schistosoma mansoni cercariae until 10 volunteers are found infected.
The study will recruit up to 290 healthy adult males and non-pregnant females into a two-part clinical trial of a vaccine to protect against schistosomiasis caused by infection with S. mansoni. Two formulations of the Sm-TSP-2 vaccine will be tested: one using Alhydrogel® only, and one using Alhydrogel® plus AP 10-701, each at 3 different doses of antigen: 10mcg, 30mcg, and 100mcg. The first part of the study will be a Phase I dose-escalation safety and immunogenicity study ...
Objective and Hypotheses: This project has the overall objective of implementing and evaluating new approaches to reducing the current and future burden of urinary schistosomiasis in young children using the antihelminthic drug Praziquantel. The project aims to (1) determine the operational health benefits of treating schistosome infections early on re-infection and morbidity reduction, (2) determine if gut or urine microbiome structure (species diversity or abundance) is a ri...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the anti-HIV drugs efavirenz and lamivudine/zidovudine given to treatment-naive HIV-infected people in Dakar, Senegal.
This study aims at estimating the prevalence of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in rural Senegal (area of Niakhar) and at evaluating the associated burden in terms of both health-related and socio-economic consequences.
A cross-sectional childhood M. tuberculosis infection survey of age-specific rates (defined by positivity to the test QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus) will be conducted in Senegal to collect information on the local TB endemic to inform site selection, sample size, and recruitment strategies for a future efficacy trial of vaccine candidate MTBVAC in young children.
This is a longitudinal cohort study to estimate the accuracy of the schistosomiasis point-of-care circulating cathodic antigen (POC CCA) urine test for monitoring S. japonicum infection by enrolling individuals aged ≥2 years living in the selected households will be invited to participate in the study (pediatric
Schistosomiasis is one of most important human parasitic diseases worldwide. Pregnant women and their infants are two vulnerable population groups, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, where - amongst other infectious agents - they are heavily exposed to infections with S. haematobium. Adoption of the recommendation and implementation by national disease control programs was however delayed in most African countries, due to the lack of safety data in humans and in the unborn bab...
