Derived Parasite Reduction Rate at 24 Hours (PPR24) [ Time Frame: 24 hours after study drug administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

PRR24 is the log10 change in parasitemia over 24 hours estimated from a regression model fit separately for each patient. The relationship between parasite counts and time was to be analyzed by fitting a variable lag phase, then a linear decline to the natural log of parasite count versus time relationship.

The time points chosen for the regression are those that yield the highest degree of significance when assessing the regression when the number of time points are greater than or equal to 3. No extrapolation was performed.

Derived parasite reduction rate (PRR) at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 h after study drug adminstration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
• Parasite reduction ratio at 24 hours after study drug administration estimated separately for each patient from a regression model.The relationship between parasite counts and time will be analysed by fitting a variable lag phase then a linear decline to the Natural log of parasite count versus time relationship. The slope of this log linear relationship is the primary end-point, and all secondary variables related to parasite reduction will be derived from this best fit.

Efficacy, Tolerability, PK of OZ439 in Adults With Acute, Uncomplicated P.Falciparum or Vivax Malaria Mono-infection
Phase IIa Exploratory, Open Label, Single/Multiple Dose Testing Clinical Study to Assess the Preliminary Efficacy, Tolerability and PK of OZ439 in Adult Patients With Acute, Uncomplicated P. Falciparum or Vivax Malaria Mono-infection

A Phase IIa Exploratory, Open label, Single Dose Regimen, Multiple Dose Testing Clinical Study to Assess the Preliminary Efficacy, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of OZ439 in adult patients with acute, uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum or vivax malaria mono-infection.

This exploratory Phase IIa study aims to investigate the preliminary efficacy in terms of parasite reduction and clearance in malaria patients, and the tolerability of OZ439 administered as single dose regimen at 3 different doses in parallel cohorts of patients with either acute uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum or Plasmodium vivax malaria mono-infection (10 patients per plasmodium species per dose level).

Treatment with OZ439 will be given as a single dose on Day 0, starting in the first cohort at a dose of 800 mg. Established antimalarial therapy will be given at the latest at 36 hours post dosing.

The primary endpoint will be the derived parasite reduction rate (PRR) at 24 hours after study drug administration.

A review of each individual study cohort (dose/species) will be conducted with the Principal Investigator and the Sponsor and a decision will be reached on whether the dose for the next cohort should increase or decrease (within 200mg-1600mg range). This decision will be based on parasite reduction rate over the first 24 hours following administration of OZ439, tolerability and exposure.

  3. Presence of mono-infection of P. falciparum or P. vivax confirmed by:

    • Fever, as defined by axillary temperature ≥ 37.5°C or oral/rectal/tympanic temperature ≥ 38°C, or history of fever in the previous 24 hours (history of fever must be documented) and,
    • Microscopically confirmed parasite infection, 5,000 to 50,000 asexual parasite count/µl of blood
  4. Written informed consent, in accordance with local practice, provided by patient. If the patient is unable to write, witnessed consent is permitted according to local ethical considerations
  5. Ability to swallow oral medication
  6. Ability and willingness to participate and access the health facility
  7. Agree to minimum of 4 days hospitalisation for drug administration and pharmacokinetic sampling

Exclusion Criteria:

  4. Presence of other serious or chronic clinical condition requiring hospitalisation.
  5. Severe malnutrition (defined as the weight-for-height being below -3 standard deviation or less than 70% of median of the NCHS/WHO normalised reference values).
  6. Known history or evidence of clinically significant disorders such as cardiovascular (including arrhythmia, QTc interval greater than or equal to 450 msec), respiratory (including active tuberculosis), history of jaundice, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, immunological (including active HIV-AIDS), neurological (including auditory), endocrine, infectious, malignancy, psychiatric, history of convulsions or other abnormality (including head trauma).
