Intermittent Antimalaria Treatment With SP in African Children
Intermittent Treatment With Sulfadoxine-Pyrimethamine for Malaria Control in Children: A Randomised, Double Blind, and Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial
- intermittent preventive treatment with SP in children to evaluate efficacy and safety of this drug combination in children in northern Ghana
  • Sulfadoxine and pyrimethamine have long been used for malaria prevention and treatment. In this study, following suggestions of WHO, these drugs are used for intermittent treatment.
  • It will be tested if this approach reduces the number of malaria attacks and ameliorates the severity of the disease
  • It will also be determined if anemia due to malaria, which is prevalent in northern Ghana, may be reduced
  • Moreover, the interaction between red cell polymorphisms such as HbS, HbC, alpha-thalassemia and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and SP will be examined
