Clinical trials & studies

Determining what interventions do and do not work in the field is essential if we are to have effective malaria control and treatment.

In addition to Phase II and III trials of drugs and vaccines in children and pregnant women, members of the Malaria Centre have undertaken trials using new methodologies including studies of the effectiveness of intermittent preventive treatment (Intermittent preventive treatment of malaria among children and Intermittent preventive treatment for malaria in infants), rapid diagnostic tests and health systems interventions in Africa and Asia.

New drugs and diagnostics are of no use if they are not delivered to the right people, and the members of the Malaria Centre have a particular interest in developing and testing new methods of delivery. This is complemented by a wide range of observational clinical studies in severe and uncomplicated malaria to understand the disease better.
