The malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum remains at sub-patent level throughout the dry season in areas of seasonal malaria transmission. Targeting this parasite reservoir before the transmission season could be a good strategy for malaria control. We are conducting a randomized double blind placebo controlled mass drug administration trial in eight village to clear the dry season low level parasitaemia with an ultimate aim of controlling malaria in ...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate two separate antiinflammatory products for the relief of symptoms through suppression of the immunological and inflammatory response following a mosquito bite. The investigators have selected ibuprofen gel as a NSAI formulation and 0.05% Clobetasone butyrate as a steroid cream with their appropriate physical matched placebo products. Read More

In areas of seasonal malaria transmission, treatment of carriers of malaria parasites, whose parasitaemia persists at very low levels throughout the dry season, could be a useful strategy for malaria control in areas with a short transmission season. We did a randomized trial to compare two regimens for clearance of low level parasitaemia in the dry season. Read More

Mosquito bites commonly result in redness, swelling and itching. This study will determine if a device that emits a small piezo-electrical impulse can provide relief from these symptoms. Volunteers entering the study will have a mosquito bite on one forearm. Redness and irritation will be recorded periodically for 24 hours. Comparing data from subjects randomised to the treatment or a placebo device will be analysed to determine effectiveness of the product. ... Read More

An open-label, non-randomised, uncontrolled, proof-of-concept study of patients with HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP). Participants will receive oral administration of tamibarotene in the amount of 2 mg daily over a period of 12 weeks, then 4mg daily for another 12 weeks. The patients will be followed up for further 8 weeks. Efficacy will be monitored by measuring clinical scores including motor and urination function, ... Read More

Despite increasing availability of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV in high prevalence countries, the majority of people with HIV infection still initiate treatment at an advanced stage of disease. This leads to a high risk of death soon after HIV diagnosis. Prompt HIV diagnosis is, therefore, necessary for both individual and public health benefit and is being strongly promoted as international and national policy in Malawi. However timely HIV diagnosis ... Read More

The human gut contain a wide range of microorganisms creating the gut microbiome. The microbiome has great impact on metabolic and immunologic processes and responses. Travelers who travel to tropical destinations where the intestinal infection risk is high are prone to microbiome changes. During the current study the travelers will give feces specimen before and after the travel and their microbiome will be analyzed. Read More

HIV-1 infected patients with normal peripheral blood CD4+ T-cell counts and undetectable viral load will be recruited in four Belgian HIV reference centers. Selected patients will undergo a two-step screening in which a viral reservoir measurement will be performed and among those with a very low viral reservoir an analytical treatment interruption of their longstanding antiretroviral therapy (ART). There is no randomization foreseen. Patients will receive ... Read More

A randomized double-blind controlled trial will be carried out in which young, nulliparous (having never given birth) women will be randomly assigned to receive weekly supplementation with either iron and folic acid or folic acid alone. Women will be followed-up weekly up to 18 months. Women who become pregnant will be followed-up until delivery. Malaria risk in both groups will be compared by assessing the prevalence of peripheral parasitaemia at the first ... Read More

The IDIS study aims to develop a new rapid diagnostic test for invasive salmonellosis using samples (blood, urine) collected from patients with fever and healthy controls at the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) and collaborating centers. The samples are collected after informed consent and/or assent is given by the participant and are stored in a -80 ⁰C freezer after processing (centrifugation and/or aliquoting). Basic information regarding the patient ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of nitazoxanide-peginterferon and nitazoxanide-peginterferon-ribavirin combination regimens compared to the standard of care (peginterferon-ribavirin) in treating chronic hepatitis C genotype 4. The study will also evaluate the effect of the studied treatment regimens on end of treatment virologic response, ALT normalization and safety parameters. Read More
