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...
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.
Purpose of the study is to determine whether LSA-1/AS02A combination malaria vaccine is effective at preventing malaria.
This is a prospective, single arm, single intervention safety and immunogenicity study in 6 healthy, malaria-naive adults, conducted to demonstrate the successful implementation of the well-established malaria challenge model at the Seattle Biomedical Research Institute (Seattle BioMed).
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.
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.
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.
This study will look at blood samples taken from 300 preterm babies and newborns admitted for inpatient care at Hopital Gabriel Toure in Bamako, Mali, and to gather information that will help the investigators verify the role of malaria in illness of very small babies. Blood samples will be taken from the mothers so that the investigators can find out if they have a malaria infection and how their body fights malaria. The investigators will also determine whether the mother and...
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.
The purpose of this study is to study resistance to current malaria treatments and affordable alternatives for uncomplicated malaria. Resistance occurs in areas where these treatments are used frequently. This study may help prevent future resistance. About 150 residents in Buenaventura, Colombia will participate. They will have uncomplicated malaria and they will be followed for 28 days after treatment. Physical exams and blood draws are included in study visits.
This is a double blinded study where 2 test vaccines will be evaluated to see if they protect persons who have never had malaria against malaria infection when bitten by mosquitoes.
The annual number of cases of clinical malaria worldwide is estimated to be 300-500 million leading to 1.5 million deaths. Delayed care and frequent drug resistance of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf), the most frequent form of malaria, is responsible for these deaths. Each year, 5000-8000 travellers return to France with malaria, 4/5 from Africa and with Pf. Clinical features associated with a malaria crisis are poorly predictive and misdiagnosis can be easily made. Diagnosis of ...
Malaria is one of the leading causes of deaths in children below five years old. Despite antimalarial drugs and insecticide treated bed nets, the established means of treatment and protection, malaria still continues to affect many children. A malaria vaccine would be a very effective way of reducing malaria infection in the community. RTS,S/AS01E is a leading malaria vaccine candidate which is being developed for children in Africa. The investigators have done a study to find ...
This is a diagnostic efficacy study to evaluate a set of biomarkers in human breath indicative of an acute malaria infection. The investigators plan to enroll 75 malaria patients and 175 febrile non-malaria patients in Ethiopia. Upon enrollment, blood for malaria RDT, microscopy and PCR will be collected as well as a breath sample to assess the presence of biomarkers at a reference center. Malaria patients identified by microscopy are revisited at day 2 and 7 to collect a furt...
Test the hypothesis that repeated administration of Artesunate/Amiodaquine, Artesunate/Sulfadoxine-Pyrimethamine and Arthemeter-Lufemantrine for the treatment of consecutive episodes of uncomplicated malaria reduces the incidence of uncomplicated falciparum malaria and malaria attributable anemia
The study aims to show that the candidate malaria vaccine GMZ2 is as safe as the already publicly used vaccine against rabies. 40 adult male Gabonese volunteers will be enrolled and randomly allocated to receive either malaria vaccine or rabies vaccine without the investigator or the participants knowing what they received. They will receive 3 doses each at one month intervals, and will be followed up for one year to evaluate safety parameters. This is the first time this prod...
This study will test an experimental vaccine called AMA1-C1 in children to see if it is safe and if it reduces episodes of malaria parasitemia (parasites in the blood) in children exposed to malaria. Malaria affects about 300 million to 500 million people worldwide each year, causing from 2 million to 3 million deaths, mostly among children less than 5 in sub-Saharan Africa. It is the leading cause of death and illness among the general population of Mali in West Africa. Increa...
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.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of the treatment recommended by the National Malaria Programme in Guinea-Bissau as compared to a higher dose of chloroquine and to another anti-malarial drug, amodiaquine. The genetic basis of the parasites for developing resistance will be examined. Children coming to Bandim Health Centre with symptoms of malaria and a positive malaria test will be included. The children will be visited and malaria films will be obtained weekly until day 3...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether 2 investigational malaria vaccines are safe as well as protective against malaria in adults living in the United States
This study will attempt to find out what effect mosquito insecticides have on the transmission of malaria in The Gambia. Eight hundred healthy men and women, aged 18 to 40 years, living in selected villages east of Farafenni town in The Gambia, West Africa will be screened for parasites. About 552 of these people are expected to be free of malaria and will form the study group. These people will participate in the study for 7 months and will be checked for the malaria-causing p...
Background: Malaria is a serious infection caused by a parasite. People get malaria when an infected mosquito bites them. Malaria can cause major health and social problems in places were malaria is common, such as Africa but can also affect travelers who have never been exposed to malaria. Researchers at the NIH want to find a safe and effective malaria vaccine, antimalarial drugs, or prevention regimen. To do this, healthy volunteers are recruited under a general scree...
Even with optimal anti-malaria therapy and supportive care, severe and cerebral malaria are associated with a 10-30% mortality rate and neurocognitive deficits in up to 33% of survivors. Adjunctive therapies that modify host immune-pathological processes may further improve outcome over that possible with anti-malarials alone. Investigators aim to evaluate a PPARγ agonist ( "rosiglitazone") as adjunctive therapy for severe malaria.
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...
