  Purpose

Primary Objective:

To assess the antiparasitic activity of intramuscular (IM) SAR97276A based on parasite reduction ratio at 72 hours in pediatric patients with uncomplicated malaria

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the evolution of clinical signs and symptoms (including the need for a rescue therapy) in pediatric patients with uncomplicated malaria receiving SAR97276A with reference to Artemisinin-Based Combination Therapy (ACTs)
  • To assess the pharmacokinetics profile of SAR97276A in pediatric patients with uncomplicated malaria
  • To assess the safety profile of SAR97276A in pediatric patients with uncomplicated malaria
  • To assess the pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationship of SAR97276A

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evolution of mean Parasitaemia over time (nb/µL) [ Time Frame: every 6 hours from baseline up to 72 hours (day 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evolution of mean Gametocytes count over time (nb/µL) [ Time Frame: from baseline to end of study (day 28 ± 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Fever Clearance (time to reach Temperature < 38°C) [ Time Frame: every 6 hours from baseline up to 72 hours (day 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • General conditions improvement: mean total symptom score over time [ Time Frame: every 6 hours from baseline up to 72 hours (day 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • SAR97276 pharmacokinetic profile in plasma and blood [ Time Frame: from baseline up to 12 hours after the last study drug intake on (Day 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
