Trial Type Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Start Date Summary
New Combination NCT00203801 ↗ Combination Antimalarials in Uncomplicated Malaria Completed Global Fund N/A 2002-01-01 The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine on its own and compare this with efficacy of a new combination antimalarial therapy, either sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine plus artesunate or artemether-lumefantrine.
New Combination NCT00203801 ↗ Combination Antimalarials in Uncomplicated Malaria Completed Medical Research Council, South Africa N/A 2002-01-01 The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine on its own and compare this with efficacy of a new combination antimalarial therapy, either sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine plus artesunate or artemether-lumefantrine.
New Combination NCT00203801 ↗ Combination Antimalarials in Uncomplicated Malaria Completed World Health Organization N/A 2002-01-01 The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine on its own and compare this with efficacy of a new combination antimalarial therapy, either sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine plus artesunate or artemether-lumefantrine.
New Combination NCT00203801 ↗ Combination Antimalarials in Uncomplicated Malaria Completed University of Cape Town N/A 2002-01-01 The purpose of this study is to study the efficacy of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine on its own and compare this with efficacy of a new combination antimalarial therapy, either sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine plus artesunate or artemether-lumefantrine.
New Combination NCT00694694 ↗ Azithromycin + Artesunate v Artemether-lumefantrine in Uncomplicated Malaria. Completed National Institute for Medical Research, Tanzania Phase 3 2008-06-01 This trial sets out to determine whether the combination of azithromycin and artesunate (AZ+AS) is as good as the current standard treatment for uncomplicated malaria in Tanzania, artemether-lumefantrine (AL). There are two reasons this is important 1. there are only a limited range of drug combinations which work against malaria in this area of Tanzania 2. azithromycin has antimalarial properties, but is also a broad-spectrum antibiotic, so if the combination is an effective antimalarial it might have a place where there are no diagnostic facilities as syndromic treatment for fever. Artesunate and azithromycin have both been used alone or in combination with other drugs in children in Tanzania for many years, and are considered safe. There is trial evidence for the effectiveness of this combination in adults in Asia, as well as in-vitro (laboratory) evidence that it works against the malaria parasite. The trial randomizes children with non-severe malaria to the new combination AZ+AS or the standard care arm AL. The primary outcome is the parasitological failure rate by day 28- meaning do malaria parasites get cleared, and stay cleared for at least 28 days. Secondary outcomes include safety.
New Combination NCT00694694 ↗ Azithromycin + Artesunate v Artemether-lumefantrine in Uncomplicated Malaria. Completed London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Phase 3 2008-06-01 This trial sets out to determine whether the combination of azithromycin and artesunate (AZ+AS) is as good as the current standard treatment for uncomplicated malaria in Tanzania, artemether-lumefantrine (AL).

New Combination NCT01899820 ↗ Evaluation of the Efficacy of Artemisinin Combination Therapy in Kenya Unknown status Kenya Medical Research Institute Phase 3 2013-04-01 Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are recommended for use against uncomplicated malaria in areas of multi-drug resistant malaria. The Ministry of Health, Division of Malaria Control (DOMC) rolled out the use of artemether-lumefantrine as the first line treatment for uncomplicated malaria in 2006.The development of the ACTs and its derivatives are the most rapidly acting of all the current antimalarial drugs and recognition of their potential role as a component of combination therapy have led to several large trials aimed at assessing different combinations of existing drugs, and to the specific development of new combination drugs. This proposal aims to (1) evaluate the efficacy of artemisinin-based anti-malaria combination drugs in different sites across Kenya (2) elucidate the markers of resistance to ACTs through molecular genetics and in this process further strengthen capacity in the proposed study sites as well as improve links between research and control ultimately to influence malaria treatment policy and practice. Five groups in East Africa will conduct a multi-centre, randomised, two arm trial to assess the efficacy of dihydroartemisin-piperaquine with artemether-lumefantrine as the comparative drug. The network will determine antimalarial drug efficacy using standardised protocols and collate clinical responses and adverse events. Molecular markers to artemisinin resistance will be investigated by molecular sequencing and comparison of parasite profiles in drug failure cases. Recrudescence or re-infections will be differentiated by analysis of the MSP1, MSP2 and GLURP genes and assess transmission dynamics post treatment. Data from these studies will be captured into a database developed by the network. The latter offers several advantages including - Working towards the standardization of methodologies and common protocols as a way of comparing data across sites - Pulling together datasets and conduct a multi-centre analysis - Sharing and coordinating quality assurance mechanisms

Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Start Date Summary
NCT00118794 ↗ Lapdap and Coartemether for Uncomplicated Malaria Completed Medical Research Council Phase 3 2004-09-01 Lapdap (chlorproguanil-dapsone) is an affordable and effective drug, but patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) A- deficiency are more susceptible to the haemolytic effects of the dapsone component of Lapdap; therefore there is a need to evaluate the extent to which the risks associated with the use of the drug in settings without G6PD screening might outweigh the benefits to malaria treatment. The investigators will evaluate, in operational settings, the safety and effectiveness of Lapdap and coartemether (lumefantrine-artemether) for treatment of uncomplicated malaria in patients 6 months to 10 years of age.
NCT00118794 ↗ Lapdap and Coartemether for Uncomplicated Malaria Completed National Malaria Control Programme, The Gambia Phase 3 2004-09-01 Lapdap (chlorproguanil-dapsone) is an affordable and effective drug, but patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) A- deficiency are more susceptible to the haemolytic effects of the dapsone component of Lapdap; therefore there is a need to evaluate the extent to which the risks associated with the use of the drug in settings without G6PD screening might outweigh the benefits to malaria treatment.

NCT00119145 ↗ Kintampo Trial of Combination Therapy for Malaria Completed Kintampo Health Research Centre, Ghana Phase 4 2005-06-01 Case management is one of the key strategies for malaria control in most endemic countries. Plasmodium falciparum malaria is becoming resistant to commonly used and cheap antimalarial drugs such as chloroquine, amodiaquine, and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP). Thus the safety and efficacy of new anti-malarial drugs need to be tested in sites with well-characterised malariometric indices in order to make appropriate treatment policies. Artemisinin-based combination chemotherapies have been documented to consistently produce faster relief of clinical symptoms and parasite clearance in uncomplicated falciparum malaria than any other currently used antimalarial drugs. So far, artesunate-amodiaquine (AS-AQ) and artemether-lumefantrine (AR-LM) are the only two registered fixed-dose artemisinin combination chemotherapies produced at industrial scale, with good manufacturing practices and already used in Africa. Several African countries, including Ghana, are therefore introducing either AS-AQ or AR-LM as first-line antimalarials or evaluating the case for such a change. Clearly, a direct comparison of both the safety and efficacy profiles of the two combinations under different epidemiological conditions is urgently needed to guide informed decisions on the most appropriate antimalarial first-line treatment regimen. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of artesunate-amodiaquine combination therapy, artemether-lumefantrine, and artesunate-lapdap in an open-labelled, randomised, non-inferiority drug trial. The study results will inform future decisions on first- and second-line treatments for uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria with respect to efficacy and safety in Ghana.

NCT00127998 ↗ Antimalarial Drug Resistance in Mali Completed Malaria Research and Training Center, Bamako, Mali N/A 2005-07-01 Resistance of Plasmodium falciparum (malaria) to current antimalarial drugs and the continuing development of resistance to new antimalarial formulations is one of the major obstacles to effective malaria control and case management. Efficient, comprehensive and validated methods for monitoring drug resistance in advance of the development of resistance to the antimalarial drugs that are in use are urgently needed. Molecular markers of genetic polymorphisms that give rise to resistant P. falciparum parasites and methods in population genetics for evaluating the data can be valuable tools for monitoring drug resistance in the field. This study aims to: 1. Prospectively measure the in vivo response of P. falciparum malaria in Mali to several different antimalarial drugs and drug combinations: chloroquine (CQ), sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP), amodiaquine (AQ), sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine in combination with amodiaquine (SP/AQ), amodiaquine in combination with artesunate (AQ/AS), sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine in combination with artesunate (SP/AS), and artemether-lumefantrine (Co-artem). In one site with preliminary data showing a high rate of P. falciparum resistance to mefloquine (MQ), this drug will also be tested. 2. Measure the frequencies of molecular markers for antimalarial drug resistance, and examine how those results relate to the efficacy of these drugs in treating clinical malaria 3. Measure drug levels at 3 days and correlate with efficacy results. 4. Examine early clinical, parasitologic, and clinical predictors of late treatment failure. 5. Use the knowledge gained in Aims 1-3 to develop a molecular tool for a countrywide resistance surveillance system for antimalarial drugs.
