Trial Type Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Start Date Summary
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.

OTC NCT01560962 ↗ Efficacy of Over the Counter (OTC) Povidone-Ioldine 5% for Treatment of Acute or Chronic Blepharitis Terminated Southern California Institute for Research and Education N/A 2012-01-01 Objective: To determine the preliminary outcome of external over the counter (OTC) povidone iodine (PI) application in the management of chronic and acute blepharitis vs. currently clinically accepted medical regimen, i.e. eyelid hygiene, antibiotic drops, or antibiotic/steroid ointments. Methodology: One hundred adult patients with chronic and acute blepharitis will be enrolled and randomized into four groups. In group one, 25 patients will be instructed to scrub the lid margin of one eye with 5% PI twice daily for 10 days and the other eye with no intervention. In group two, 25 patients will be instructed to scrub the lid margin of one eye with 5% PI and the other eye will receive warm soaked eyelid wash. In group three, 25 patients will be instructed to scrub the lid margin of one eye with 5% PI and the other eye will receive 1 drop of azithromycin ophthalmic solution twice daily for 10 days. In group four, 25 patients will be instructed to scrub the lid margin of one eye with 5% PI and the other eye will receive tobradex ointment applied to the lid margin. Subjective variables assessed included itchiness, foreign body sensation and eyelid edema (grade 0-4). Objective variables assessed included lid margin redness, meibomian gland plugging and presence/absence of collarets (grade 0-4). Cultures of lid margin at the initiation and at the cessation of treatment were obtained.
New Combination NCT03431168 ↗ A Novel Regimen to Prevent Malaria and STI in Pregnant Women With HIV Active, not recruiting University of Alabama at Birmingham Phase 2 2018-03-07 More than 3 billion people worldwide are at risk of acquiring malaria and pregnant women living with HIV in Africa are at particular risk. An effective prophylaxis regimen capable of preventing malaria and other common perinatal infections would have great potential to improve adverse birth outcomes. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to evaluate a new combination prophylaxis regimen in pregnant women with HIV in Cameroon to determine its efficacy and safety.
OTC NCT04590274 ↗ Safety and Efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine for the Treatment & Prevention of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Not yet recruiting International Brain Research Foundation Phase 1 2020-11-01 Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) (previously called 2019-nCOV acute respiratory disease) is caused by SARS-CoV-2, a positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus of the coronavirus family. The coronaviruses are largely responsible for the common cold, the 2002 SARS outbreak in Guangdong, China, the 2012 MERS outbreak in Saudi Arabia, and the present COVID-19 outbreak that originated in Wuhan, China. Much has been reported by way of systemic injury caused by COVID-19 affecting the cardiovascular, hepatic, nervous systems. These conditions are likely the result of the virus overwhelming the immune system. For these reasons, the investigators wish to conduct this study using existing medications off-label, and over-the-counter supplements to support the immune response, prevent lasting injury, and hasten the recovery from COVID-19.

All Clinical Trials for Azithromycin

Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Start Date Summary
NCT00000617 ↗ Azithromycin and Coronary Events Study (ACES) Completed National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Phase 3 1998-09-01 To determine whether treatment with azithromycin decreases the rate of coronary heart disease events among patients with stable documented coronary artery disease.
NCT00000641 ↗ A Phase II/III Trial of Rifampin, Ciprofloxacin, Clofazimine, Ethambutol, and Amikacin in the Treatment of Disseminated Mycobacterium Avium Infection in HIV-Infected Individuals. Completed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Phase 2 1969-12-31 To compare the effectiveness and toxicity of two combination drug treatment programs for the treatment of disseminated Mycobacterium avium infection in HIV seropositive patients. [Per 03/06/92 amendment: to evaluate the efficacy of azithromycin when given in conjunction with either ethambutol or clofazimine as maintenance therapy.] Disseminated M. avium infection is the most common systemic bacterial infection complicating AIDS in the United States. The prognosis of patients with disseminated M. avium is extremely poor, particularly when it follows other opportunistic infections or is associated with anemia. Test tube studies and clinical data indicate that the best treatment program may include clofazimine, ethambutol, a rifamycin derivative, and ciprofloxacin. Test tube and animal studies indicate that amikacin is a bactericidal (bacteria destroying) drug that works better when used with ciprofloxacin. Its role in treatment programs is a key issue because of toxicity and because it must be administered parenterally (by injection or intravenously).
NCT00000811 ↗ A Study to Compare Different Drugs Used to Prevent Serious Bacterial Infections in HIV-Positive Children Completed Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Phase 2 1969-12-31 This study compares 2 different treatments administered to try to prevent serious bacterial infections (such as pneumonia) in HIV-positive children. A combination of drugs (azithromycin plus atovaquone) will be compared to sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (SMX/TMP) alone. This study also evaluates the long-term safety and tolerance of these different drugs. SMX/TMP is a commonly prescribed drug for the prevention of bacterial infections. However, the combination of azithromycin and atovaquone may be safer and more effective than SMX/TMP. This study compares the 2 treatments.

This study also evaluates the long-term safety and tolerance of these different drugs. SMX/TMP is a commonly prescribed drug for the prevention of bacterial infections.
