Neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia (NH) is common among healthy neonates and normally resolves within a week. Untreated pathological hyperbilirubinaemia, however, can result in long-term neurological sequelae, which compromise childhood development, or may result in perinatal death. True population-based data from middle to low-income countries are scarce and NH contribution to morbidity and mortality remains unclear. With this study the investigators aim at assessing the prevalence ...

Monkeypox is a febrile rash illness caused by the monkeypox virus. Its natural occurrence in the DRC puts healthcare and frontline workers at high risk of acquiring monkeypox virus infections that can prevent them from performing work duties, compromise the overall healthcare delivery in an already fragile system, and can result in death (case fatality estimates are approximately 10%). This is an open-label prospective cohort study in up to 1,000 eligible healthcare workers at...
Late 2013, the first indigenous cases of chikungunya have been observed in the French Antilles. At the end of May 2014, almost all of the islands of the Caribbean were affected by the outbreak. During the large epidemic which affected the Island of La Réunion in 2005/2006, the attack rate was 38%. The most active period was three months. In this context, knowledge of the attack rate and the epidemic in the Caribbean is an important issue for outbreak management and mod...
Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes whose clinical feature is the early joint damage. Approximately 8% of patients have chronic arthropathy resembling to the rheumatoid polyarthritis. The EchoCHIK study we propose is in the context of the epidemic in Martinique which began in January 2014. It should give a better understanding of arthritis and juxtaarticular of CHIK and look for signs that may allow ultrasound predict the evolution of chronic arthropathy of...

A severe outbreak of Chikungunya fever has been reported at La Réunion Island (France) in 2005-2006. Chikungunya is a viral disease. Chikungunya virus is an alphavirus transmitted to humans by the bite of infected mosquitoes, usually of the genus Aedes (Aedes albopictus in La Réunion). To date, more than 266,000 cases were estimated to have occurred in the island (760,000 inhabitants). Most of cases are expressed as a mild disease, with intense fever and arthralgias,...
A Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind Pilot Study of Single-dose Humanized Anti-IL5 Antibody (Reslizumab) for the Reduction of Eosinophilia Following Diethylcarbamazine Treatment of Loa Loa Infection
Background: - Loa loa is a parasitic worm that infects people in West and Central Africa and is spread by the bite of a deerfly. Adult worms (macrofilariae) live under the skin and cause symptoms such as swellings, itching, and hives. Smaller worms (microfilariae) are found in the bloodstream. Diethylcarbamazine (DEC), the recommended medication for Loa loa infection, can produce very serious side effects, especially in people with high number...
Our overall goal is to validate efficacy and potential superiority of dried leaf Artemisia annua (DLA) vs. artemisinin combination therapy (ACT) to cure malaria and to demonstrate elimination of the transmission stage (gametocytes) of the disease. This is a 3 arm trial in Democratic Republic of Congo covering 600 total adult and pediatric patients. Final validation of infection from dried blood samples will be done at WPI.
A phase 2 open-label study to assess the safety and immunogenicity of an alum-adjuvanted chikungunya virus-like particle vaccine (PXVX0317) in prior recipients of other alphavirus vaccines versus alphavirus naïve controls.
