Field Studies on the Feasibility of Interrupting the Transmission of Soil-transmitted Helminths (STH)

Over 1.5 billion people are infected with soil-transmitted helminths (STH). Global STH guidelines recommend MDA (mass drug administration) of albendazole or mebendazole to targeted populations, including pre-school age children and school-age children. However mathematical models suggests that current MDA strategies are not sufficient for interrupting disease transmission in most areas. ...


Parasite-based Diagnosis for Malaria in Uganda: Feasibility and Cost-Effectiveness

The development of drug resistance in malaria parasites lead the Uganda Ministry of Health (MoH) to change the first-line anti-malarial treatment from the cheap Chloroquine/Sulfadoxine-Pyrimethamine combination to a more expensive Artemether-Lumefantrine. The MoH recommends treatment of all fever cases as malaria within 24 hours of illness with first-line drug. Under ...

Phase N/A

Host Response to Infection and Treatment in Filarial Diseases

Patients admitted on this protocol will have, or be suspected of having, one of the filarial infections affecting humans. After routine clinical evaluation they will be studied in depth immunologically, and their blood cells and/or serum will be collected to provide reagents (eg., specific antibodies, T-cell clones, etc.) that will ...

Phase N/A

Activation and Function of Eosinophils in Conditions With Blood or Tissue Eosinophilia

Subjects admitted on this protocol will have elevated eosinophil counts in the peripheral blood or tissues or will be relatives of subjects with eosinophilia. Eosinophilic subjects will undergo an extensive clinical evaluation focused on the identification of the cause of eosinophilia and the presence of end organ manifestations. In addition, ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation Treatment and Monitoring of Patients With a Known or Suspected Parasitic Infection

This study is designed as a prospective study to evaluate and treat patients with parasitic infection. Patients with known or suspected parasitic infection will be enrolled and will be evaluated for the presence of a parasitic infection. Minimal studies scheduled for each visit will include a medical history, physical examination, ...

Phase N/A

Host and Parasite Factors That Influence Susceptibility to Malaria Infection and Disease During Pregnancy and Early Childhood in Ouelessebougou and Bamako Mali

Malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum continues to be a global problem with devastating consequences. A greater understanding of the immunologic and parasitologic factors associated with infection and disease is badly needed, and will accelerate the development of highly protective vaccines for both mothers and children. Pregnancy malaria is associated with ...

Phase N/A

Plasmodium and Other Parasites in Pregnant Women and Children Around Margibi and Montserrado Counties Liberia

Malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum continues to be a global problem with devastating consequences, in particular for at-risk populations such as pregnant women and young infants. Pregnancy malaria is associated with low birth weight (LBW), maternal anemia, and gestational hypertension; both inflammation and the fetal response to infection may contribute ...

Phase N/A

Diagnosis and Treatment of Leishmanial Infections

Patients admitted on this protocol will have, or be suspected of having, a Leishmania infection. The major objectives of the protocol are to diagnose and classify the Leishmania infection and to provide species-based therapy to study the natural history of the treated infection. As part of the standard evaluation of ...

Phase N/A

Urine Albendazole Levels for Coverage Assessment

Soil-Transmitted-Helminthic (STH) infections are a major public health issue affecting the world's poorest populations. Control strategies for STH have been focused on the use of mass chemotherapy often delivered to school-aged-children; although there is strong interest in considering community wide MDA to achieve transmission interruption of STH. In these programs, ...
