Fetal Immunity to Falciparum Malaria

The primary aim of this study is to determine how prenatal exposure to malaria influences development of humoral and cellular immune responses to malaria blood stage antigens from birth to 3 years of age. In addition, the study will determine the risk factors and mechanisms associated with congenital malaria or ...

Phase N/A

Time to Infection With Malaria Parasites

Malaria remains one of the world's greatest childhood killers and is a substantial obstacle to social and economic development in the tropics. The overwhelming bulk of the world's malaria burden rests upon the population of sub-Saharan Africa because of the unique coincidence of expanding human populations, weak health systems, the ...

Phase N/A

Malaria Prevalence in Children

Malaria remains one of the world's greatest childhood killers and is a substantial obstacle to social and economic development in the tropics. The overwhelming bulk of the world's malaria burden rests upon the population of sub-Saharan Africa because of the unique coincidence of expanding human populations, weak health systems, the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Fever Occurring in Labor in Patients Receiving Epidural Anesthesia

Historically the diagnosis of chorioamnionitis (an infection of the membranes surrounding the fetus) for patients in labor has been made on the basis of multiple clinical variables such as maternal fever, fetal tachycardia, uterine tenderness, or foul smelling vaginal discharge. The diagnosis also takes into account a clinical picture consistent ...

Phase

Prospective Study of Infant Dengue

This is a prospective natural history study to define the levels of maternally-acquired neutralizing antibody (Ab) and other correlates of immunity that may protect against the development of dengue hemorrhagic fever in infants. Approximately 10,000 mother-infant pairs will be enrolled to achieve a continuous study cohort of approximately 4,000 children ...

Phase N/A

Malaria Transmission and Immunity in Highland Kenya

The purpose of this study is to see why malaria epidemics occur in highland areas in Kenya. A better understanding of factors contributing to malaria may be necessary for malaria vaccine planning. These factors include interactions between age, where malaria is passed from mosquitoes to people, immune system (how the ...

Phase N/A

Orthostatic Hypotension in Children With Acute Febrile Illness

Orthosatic hypotension describes a condition in which the autonomic nervous system fails to maintain a stable blood pressure in the face of postural change. Children presenting to the pediatric ED with fever often describe symptom like syncope, lightheadedness, dizziness, pallor, fatigue and weakness. These symptom may result from orthostatism related ...

Phase

Plasmodium Resistance in A. Gambiae

Malaria is a blood-borne human disease, and is transmitted to mosquitoes in the bloodmeal, an obligatory step in human malaria transmission. This is a study of malaria parasites in the major mosquito vector of human malaria in Africa, Anopheles gambiae. The intent of the study is to develop modern forms ...

Phase N/A

Normal Immunological Parameters Among Healthy Volunteers in Kambila Mali

Malaria results in at least 2.7 million deaths per year, the majority among African children. The development of a vaccine against Plasmodium falciparum is regarded as a crucial step toward control of this disease. Unfortunately, vaccine candidates have resulted in short-lived protection at best. The ineffectiveness of current vaccines may ...

Phase N/A

Procalcitonin in Diagnosing Bacteremia in the Emergency Department

Nowadays, a physician plays a more important role in managing patients with potential infectious complications in the emergency room. Previous studies demonstrated the importance of early and adequate anti-microbial therapy in reducing the mortality and morbidity of patients with severe sepsis. However, in one study, about 6% of clinically significant ...
