|Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT)||Drug: Fexinidazole||Phase 2 Phase 3|
-To demonstrate that the success rate of fexinidazole at one year follow-up in stage 1 and early stage 2 patients is greater than 80%. An 80 % success rate is considered as unacceptable.
- To verify whether the success rate of fexinidazole treatment depends on the stage of the disease (stage 1 versus early stage 2); and, if the difference between the 2 stages is significant, to show that the success rate is greater than 80% and compatible with the historical success rate of NECT in early stage 2 patients and with the historical success rate of pentamidine in stage 1 patients.
- To verify whether the success rate of fexinidazole treatment depends on the number of WBCs in CSF before treatment initiation.
- To assess changes in the success rate over time.
- To evaluate the safety of fexinidazole and determine whether its safety profile is comparable to the historical safety profile of pentamidine.
