The safety and effectiveness of AmBisome 15 mg/kg, given over 15 days in 5 biweekly infusions of 3 mg/kg on an outpatient basis, is evaluated in clinically diagnosed PKDL patients of 12 years and older in a highly endemic area in Bangladesh. This is a prospective study, with the objective to assess final cure 12 months after treatment.
Hypothesis: Primary hypothesis: 1. Oral treatment with Miltefosine in children with PKDL at allometric daily dose (based on body weight and height) for 12 weeks is safe with a cure rate of ≥95%. Secondary hypothesis: 2. Development of PKDL in children and adolescent is genetically predisposed and is associated with IL-10 & IFN-gamma gene polymorphism causing high and low serum level of IL-10 and IFN-gamma respectively. 3. Nutritional & environmental factors such as low serum vitamin E, A, D, Zn & arsenic exposure are associated with PKDL.
We hypothesize that PKDL develop after SSG as well as after Miltefosine mono-therapy for VL; anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-10, TGF-β, serum lipids play key role for its pathogenesis & PKDL patients are genetically predisposed; diagnostic tool based on immunofluorescence technique will be more sensitive than slit skin examination for diagnosis of PKDL.
A phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of three injections of 10 µg LEISH-F2 + 25 µg MPL-SE given at 14-day intervals as an adjunct to standard chemotherapy with sodium stibogluconate (20 mg/kg/day for 40 days) in patients with PKDL.
The purpose of this study is to determine if a vaccine (called Leish-111f + MPL-SE) is safe and whether it can or cannot produce a protective response against visceral leishmaniasis when injected to healthy subjects.
