This study, conducted by the Malaria Research and Training Center at the Faculty of Medicine in Bamako and the NIAID will measure the frequency of occurrence of malaria in infants in Bancoumana, Mali. Information from the study will help in planning trials of malaria vaccines.
Healthy children from 6 weeks to 6 months of age who live in the Bancoumana health area may be eligible for this study. Candidates are screened with a physical examination and blood tests.
Participating children are visited at home for a total of about 17 visits to see if they are well. They come to the clinic every month during the 7-month study for a clinical evaluation, including a blood sample obtained by finger prick to test for malaria. Some of the blood collected may be stored and used for research. Children who become sick with malaria are treated for the disease.
