Radical cure of P. vivax malaria can be achieved using large doses of primaquine which have shown to cause some degree of hemolysis even in subjects who tested normal by the conventional qualitative G6PD tests. Different regimens of drug might be more appropriate in subjects with intermediate G6PD activity which can be currently measured only in well equipped laboratories. Validation of new qualitative and quantitative point-of-care tests is essential to for safe deployment of standard and new radical cure regimens against Plasmodium vivax.
This study will evaluate performances of quantitative POC G6PD tests (Biosensors) against gold standard quantitative laboratory based tests and genotyping. Patients will be searched from the electronic record database to identify up to 150 patients with the following characteristics: approximately 50 G6PD-deficient men and women (however only a very small percent of deficients are homozygous women) approximately 50 G6PD-heterozygous women with intermediate activity, and approximately 50 G6PD-normal individuals and patients who meet the screening criteria will be contacted at their home by a clinic staff member. The home visitor will explain study details and invite to participate in the study. If the patients express interest in participating, they will be directed to visit the following month at the clinic where they usually receive care.
After signing the informed consent form, two blood samples will be withdrawn; one sample will be taken by finger-stick (200 µl) and one sample (0.5 ml) will be taken by arm venipuncture. The blood from capillary sample will be used to assess G6PD activity using the POC tests, CBC and laboratory based quantitative tests. The venous blood will be used for reference standard quantitative G6PD assays, Hb typing analysis, CBC and buffy-coat will be stored for DNA extraction for G6PD genotyping only; leftover blood will be discarded.
