541. The effectiveness of chemoprophylaxis against malaria for non-immune migrant workers in eastern Thailand. (PubMed)

The effectiveness of chemoprophylaxis against malaria for non-immune migrant workers in eastern Thailand. A randomized, double-blind field trial was carried out to compare the effectiveness of mefloquine plus sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (MSP) with that of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) in chemoprophylaxis against malaria. The study was conducted in 193 migrant workers in the eastern rural areas of Thailand which are known to be highly endemic for multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum

542. Compliance with malaria chemoprophylaxis over a five-year period among children in a rural area of The Gambia. (PubMed)

Compliance with malaria chemoprophylaxis over a five-year period among children in a rural area of The Gambia. We have reviewed a malaria chemoprophylaxis programme in which Maloprim (pyrimethamine and dapsone) has been administered fortnightly by village health workers (VHWs) to approximately 1500 children each year aged 6-59 months resident in 15 primary health care villages in a rural area of The Gambia over 5 years. Reasonable levels of compliance with chemoprophylaxis have been maintained (...) no compensation from the villagers for administering chemoprophylaxis. The administration of a drug to prevent illness in children was complementary to the curative service provided by VHWs. The chemoprophylactic was widely acceptable and nearly all mothers stated that the tablets were good for their children's health. However, knowledge of the specific purpose of chemoprophylaxis in the prevention of malaria was limited. Improvements in the programme which may result in higher levels of compliance

543. Hyperpigmented dermal macules in children following the administration of Maloprim for malaria chemoprophylaxis. (PubMed)

Hyperpigmented dermal macules in children following the administration of Maloprim for malaria chemoprophylaxis. The occurrence of an unexpected side effect following the use of Maloprim (pyrimethamine/dapsone) for malaria chemosuppression in 3-59 months old children in Sierra Leone is reported. As part of a trial of chemoprophylaxis and insecticide-impregnated bed nets, 2000 children received either Maloprim or placebo; 4% of children who received Maloprim fortnightly for more than 3 months (...) was noted. Hyperpigmented lesions similar to those reported in this study have been described previously in patients with leprosy treated with dapsone, and the dapsone component of Maloprim is the likely cause of the skin reactions seen in children given this drug for malaria chemoprophylaxis.

544. Chemoprophylaxis against malaria in Papua New Guinea: a trial of amodiaquine and a combination of dapsone and pyrimethamine. (PubMed)

Chemoprophylaxis against malaria in Papua New Guinea: a trial of amodiaquine and a combination of dapsone and pyrimethamine. A placebo-controlled chemoprophylaxis trial was carried out in 1980 in 318 semi-immune school children in the Madang area of Papua New Guinea, where there was a high prevalence of strains of Plasmodium falciparum resistant to 4-aminoquinolines. Since prophylaxis with amodiaquine at 5 mg/kg weekly had failed, amodiaquine at a dose of 10mg/kg weekly and Maloprim (half (...) counts by either drug regimen. Chemoprophylaxis as a component of an integrated malaria control program should not be overlooked, provided that compliance can be maintained. However, in this particular case the principal purpose of the study had been to evaluate the proposed chemoprophylactic regimens in school children before embarking on an intervention study in young children. As a result of this study it was decided not to go ahead with the chemoprophylactic intervention in young children

545. Malaria chemoprophylaxis using proguanil/dapsone combinations on the Thai-Cambodian border. (PubMed)

Malaria chemoprophylaxis using proguanil/dapsone combinations on the Thai-Cambodian border. The Thai-Cambodian border is a difficult area in which to provide adequate malaria chemoprophylaxis because of multiple drug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum. In 1990-1991, Thai soldiers were randomly selected to receive proguanil (200 mg/day) combined with dapsone (4 mg or 12.5 mg/day) (n = 184) or pyrimethamine/dapsone (12.5 mg and 100 mg/week) (n = 177). Doxycycline (100 mg/day) was given to men (...) . Hematologic toxicity was not observed with the proguanil/dapsone combination. We conclude that proguanil/dapsone is not a useful alternative for malaria chemoprophylaxis on the Thai-Cambodian border.

546. Malaria chemoprophylaxis, birth weight and child survival. (PubMed)

Malaria chemoprophylaxis, birth weight and child survival. Study of the effects of malaria chemoprophylaxis given during pregnancy on birthweight and investigation of the influence of birthweight on child survival suggest that, in a rural area of The Gambia, chemoprophylaxis given during pregnancy might reduce infant mortality by about one-fifth in the children of primigravidae but by less than 5% in the children of multigravidae. In malaria endemic areas, primigravidae should be protected (...) against malaria not only for their own sake but also for that of their infants.

547. Malaria in infants whose mothers received chemoprophylaxis: response to amodiaquine therapy. (PubMed)

Malaria in infants whose mothers received chemoprophylaxis: response to amodiaquine therapy. In October 1988, a project was implemented for assessing the malaria chemoprophylactic efficacy of weekly chloroquine (CQ) and daily proguanil (PROG) during pregnancy in Muheza-Tanzania. Resultant CQ and PROG-cohorts of infants were followed up for prompt diagnosis and treatment of malaria. Infections were primarily treated with 25 mg base amodiaquine/kg over 3 days. By September 1990, 49 and 60 infants (...) from PROG and CQ cohorts respectively had completed one year follow up. Thirty-five (71%) infants of PROG and 44 (73%) for CQ-cohort were infected with malaria before 3 months of age. The one year mean infection episode rates were 7 (PROG-cohort) and 6.6 (CQ-cohort). Amodiaquine cleared 209 (80%) of PROG's total infections and 224 (81%) for CQ-cohort, and significantly reduced the infection load among clearance failures. Clearance failures had high pre-treatment parasite densities whilst post

548. Severe morbidity among children in a trial malaria chemoprophylaxis with pyrimethamine or chloroquine in Ibarapa, Nigeria. (PubMed)

Severe morbidity among children in a trial malaria chemoprophylaxis with pyrimethamine or chloroquine in Ibarapa, Nigeria. In a controlled trial of weekly malaria chemoprophylaxis with chloroquine and pyrimethamine there were no significant differences in type and frequency of severe morbidity during chemoprophylaxis. Administration of chemoprophylaxis during the current and immediately preceding month was associated with significantly fewer episodes of severe morbidity in the chloroquine (...) and pyrimethamine groups when each was compared with the control multivite group. After chemoprophylaxis had been stopped, significantly more episodes of severe morbidity occurred in the chloroquine group than the control group, but a similar trend in the pyrimethamine group was not statistically significant. In the control group most of the episodes of severe morbidity, including those episodes which were associated with heavy parasitaemia, occurred below the age of 4 years. In contrast, the children who

551. The influence of Maloprim chemoprophylaxis on cellular and humoral immune responses to Plasmodium falciparum asexual blood stage antigens in schoolchildren living in a malaria endemic area of Mozambique. (PubMed)

The influence of Maloprim chemoprophylaxis on cellular and humoral immune responses to Plasmodium falciparum asexual blood stage antigens in schoolchildren living in a malaria endemic area of Mozambique. We examined the impact of chemoprophylaxis on the cellular and humoral immune responses to polypeptides of the asexual Plasmodium falciparum blood stage antigens, the glutamate rich protein GLURP and Pf155/RESA, both of which in previous field studies have been identified as potentially (...) season, both during the period of chemoprophylaxis and during the follow-up. The antibody response rate to the GLURP was lower in the Maloprim group than in the placebo group during the intervention phase. The lymphoproliferative response rate to the malaria antigens was significantly lower at the end of the rainy season than at the end of the dry season, but the difference between the experimental group and the control group of schoolchildren was not statistically significant. These results suggest

552. A malaria control trial using insecticide-treated bed nets and targeted chemoprophylaxis in a rural area of The Gambia, west Africa. 5. Design and implementation of the trial. (PubMed)

A malaria control trial using insecticide-treated bed nets and targeted chemoprophylaxis in a rural area of The Gambia, west Africa. 5. Design and implementation of the trial. A large-scale malaria intervention programme using insecticide-treated bed nets and chemoprophylaxis administered to children was introduced into a rural area of The Gambia. The operation was carried out using the existing primary health care (PHC) service in the region. Training of the village health workers (...) heavier fabrics tended to absorb more insecticide than those made from lighter materials. Four months after dipping, 89% of the insecticide had been lost from treated nets. This was probably due mainly to women washing their nets, an activity carried out on average once every 2 months during the rainy season. The high number of insecticide-treated bed nets in the study area demonstrated that a malaria control programme operated through a PHC system can be implemented successfully.

553. Malaria chemoprophylaxis, infection of the placenta and birth weight in Gambian primigravidae. (PubMed)

Malaria chemoprophylaxis, infection of the placenta and birth weight in Gambian primigravidae. A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled community based trial of Maloprim (pyrimethamine 12.5 mg+dapsone 100 mg) administered to primigravid pregnant women by Traditional Birth Attendants was carried out in a rural area of The Gambia, West Africa. Placental histology showed less malaria infection in women who received chemoprophylaxis than in those who received placebo. The birth weight (...) of children born to women who received chemoprophylaxis was increased by an average of 153 g. Within the treatment groups, there were no significant differences in the birthweights of babies born to women who had histological evidence of malaria infection of the placenta compared to those who had no malaria infection. This study confirms the beneficial effect of malaria prophylaxis for primigravid pregnant women but questions the mechanism by which malaria affects foetal development.

556. Failure of a chloroquine chemoprophylaxis program to adequately prevent malaria during pregnancy in Koupéla District, Burkina Faso. (Full text)

Failure of a chloroquine chemoprophylaxis program to adequately prevent malaria during pregnancy in Koupéla District, Burkina Faso. In West Africa, administration of chloroquine chemoprophylaxis during pregnancy is common, but little is known about its impact on Plasmodium falciparum infection during pregnancy. Therefore, cross-sectional studies in antenatal care clinics (ANCs) and delivery units (DUs) were conducted in Koupéla District, Burkina Faso. Chloroquine chemoprophylaxis was reported (...) parasitemia, LBW, or prematurity. Despite the high reported chloroquine chemoprophylaxis coverage, peripheral and placental malaria rates remain high and are associated with known adverse outcomes during pregnancy, including maternal anemia, prematurity, and LBW. Alternative prevention strategies, such as use of insecticide-treated mosquito nets and intermittent preventive treatment with more-effective antimalarials, are needed.

557. Mortality and morbidity from malaria after stopping malaria chemoprophylaxis. (PubMed)

Mortality and morbidity from malaria after stopping malaria chemoprophylaxis. Gambian children who had received malaria chemoprophylaxis for a variable period of time during their first 5 years of life were followed to determine whether they experienced a rebound in mortality or in morbidity from malaria during the period after chemoprophylaxis was stopped. The risk of dying between the ages of 5 years, when chemoprophylaxis was stopped, and 10 years was no higher among children who had (...) received chemoprophylaxis with Maloprim (pyrimethamine plus dapsone) for some period during their first 5 years of life than among children who had received placebo (21 vs. 24 deaths) and the beneficial effect of chemoprophylaxis on mortality observed during the first 5 years of life was sustained. The incidence of clinical attacks of malaria during the year after medication was stopped was significantly higher among children who had previously received Maloprim for several years than among children

A malaria control trial using insecticide-treated bed nets and targeted chemoprophylaxis in a rural area of The Gambia, west Africa. 2. Mortality and morbidity from malaria in the study area. Background data on child mortality and morbidity from malaria were obtained in a new study area in the centre of The Gambia, south of the river, chosen as the site for a malaria intervention trial. Infant and child mortality rates were 120 and 41 per 1000 respectively. Results obtained using post-mortem (...) questionnaires suggested that malaria was an uncommon cause of death in children under the age of one year but responsible for about 40% of deaths in children aged 1-4 years. Ninety-two percent of deaths attributed to malaria occurred during or immediately after the rainy season. Parasite and spleen rates in children aged 1-5 years at the end of the malaria transmission season were 66% and 64% respectively. Malariometric indices were similar in primary health care (PHC) villages, selected as sites
