Study summary

We are carrying out a clinical trial with two marketed drugs that are being developed in combination for the prevention of seasonal malaria in children.  The main aim of this study is to determine how safe and well tolerated the drugs are when given in combination to healthy volunteers. The results of this study may be used to support further drug development for the prevention of malaria.

This study will be conducted at our clinical trials unit in London Bridge and will involve healthy volunteers of sub-Saharan African origin (i.e your family comes from a sub-Saharan country although both you and/or your parents could have been born in the United Kingdom)

If your family originated from any of these countries [view here] you could be eligible to take part

Study details

You will need to attend a screening visit within 20 days before the start of the study. If successful, you will be required to be in our unit for one in house stay of 5 days / 4 nights, four outpatients visits on Days 8, 15, 22 and 29 and one final follow-up visit on Day 36 (see dates in detail below)

The aim of this study is to determine how safe and well-tolerated the drugs are when given in combination to healthy volunteers. The results of this study may be used to support further drug development for the prevention of malaria.
