METHODS AND FINDINGS An individually randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial(More)
UNLABELLED The merozoite surface protein-3 long synthetic peptide (MSP3-LSP) comprises the amino acid sequence 186-276 of the Plasmodium falciparum protein MSP3. It is currently in development as an erythrocytic stage (blood stage) malaria vaccine candidate. We report here the first data on the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of three doses of(More)
BACKGROUND Artesunate (AS) plus amodiaquine (AQ) is one artemisinin-based combination (ACT) recommended by the WHO for treating Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Fixed-dose AS/AQ is new, but its safety and efficacy are hitherto untested. METHODS A randomized, open-label trial was conducted comparing the efficacy (non-inferiority design) and safety of fixed(More)
BACKGROUND Interventions that reduce exposure to malaria infection may lead to delayed malaria morbidity and mortality. We investigated whether intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in children (IPTc) was associated with an increase in the incidence of malaria after cessation of the intervention. METHODS An individually randomised, trial of IPTc,(More)
