Comparing Praziquantel Versus Artesunate + Sulfamethoxypyrazine/Pyrimethamine for Treating Schistosomiasis
Randomized Double Blind Clinical Trial in Mali, Comparing the Effectiveness of Artesunate + Sulfamethoxypyrazine/Pyrimethamine Versus Praziquantel in the Treatment of S. Haematobium in Children

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of praziquantel versus As+SMP (Co-Arinate FDC ®) in the treatment of Schistosoma haematobium in 6-15 year old Malian children. The nul-hypothesis in this study is that the combination of As+SMP is more effective than praziquantel in the treatment of S. haematobium infected children.
