The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of moxidectin in subjects' blood and to measure safety. This study will enroll 36 children aged 4 to 11 years (>=12 kg) with or without Onchocerca volvulus (O volvulus) infection. O volvulus is the nematode, or roundworm, that causes Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness. Each subject will receive a single dose of 4 mg moxidectin (orally administered) and will be followed inpatient from screening through day 13 and as outpatients through month 6. The study will take place at a single research center.

Further study details as provided by Pfizer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The amount of moxidectin in subjects blood, as measured by collecting a number of blood samples from each subject, in which the amount of moxidectin will be measured [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The safety and tolerability of a single dose of 4 mg moxidectin in subjects as measured by physical examinations, laboratory tests, vital signs and ECG findings [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
