Malaria Active Epidemiology and Treatment Study
An Active Malaria Epidemiology Cohort Study With Evaluation of a 2 Day Versus 3 Day Treatment Regimen of DHA-Piperaquine for Patients With Uncomplicated Malaria
An observational cohort and malaria treatment study in Cambodia.
This is an active observational Cohort Study of malaria epidemiology with a nested two arm, randomized, open label Treatment Study comparing the efficacy, safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of a two versus three day course of Dihydroartemisinin-Piperaquine (DP) for those developing uncomplicated malaria. At the conclusion of the Cohort Study, a subset of volunteers with documented exposure to Plasmodium vivax during the study will be treated with primaquine as presumptive anti-relapse therapy directed against the exoerythrocytic malaria stages of P. vivax, and followed passively for an additional 6 months.
