There are about 189 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Mali. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
The goal of this observational study is to investigate the effects of measles virus (MeV) infection on pre-existing immunity, vaccine response, and susceptibility to subsequent illness in children aged 1-15 either with or without acute MeV infection.
Diarrhea remains a leading cause of death among young children, with the majority of diarrhea deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries. Childhood diarrhea caused by a type of bacteria called "Shigella" is responsible for an estimated 60,000 deaths each year and may cause particularly severe illness among children. Currently, there are several promising vaccines to prevent Shigella diarrhea in development, but key information is still needed to inform future vaccine studies. The purpose of this study, titled Enterics for Global Health (or the "EFGH"), is to determine the number and rate of new cases of Shigella diarrhea among children 6 to 35 months of age presenting to health facilities with diarrhea or dysentery. Over a two-year period, the EFGH study will enroll 1,400 children from each of the seven countries: Peru, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Malawi, Kenya, and The Gambia (9,800 children total).
This study will investigate whether 3D printing of orthoses (night splints and AFO/KAFO for walking, further named as dynamic AFO/KAFO) for the lower limbs can help to improve the limited accessibility to orthopaedic devices in developing countries. The 3D printed orthoses will be assessed for effectiveness, cost and feasibility. Measurement and manufacture of the orthoses is also supported remotely via video conferencing.
The goal of this cluster randomized controlled trial is to assess the effectiveness of the hands4health multi-component hand hygiene intervention in patients and health care providers in primary health care facilities in Burkina Faso and Mali. The main question it aims to answer is: * Can the hands4health multi-component hand hygiene intervention have a positive effect on the health determinants of our study population? Participants will be structurally observed for assessing their handwashing behavior, answer to a self-reported RANAS survey and provide a hand-rinse sample at base line, follow-up and end line. In addition specific pre-defined health outcomes and absenteeism will be tracked with a journal approach in the facilities. Intervention facilities will receive a Gravit'eau handwashing system, a RANAS behaviour change intervention, WASH FIT support, and chlorination support. Control facilities will receive nothing at the beginning, but once all of the data is collected, they will receive the same intervention as the intervention facilities have received. Researchers will compare the intervention and control groups to see if the hands4health intervention has any positive effects on the populations health determinants (e.g. handwashing behavior, perceptions towards hand hygiene, perceived risks, etc.).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a one time SC administration of L9LS in healthy adults in Mali, as well as its protective efficacy against naturally occurring Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) infection over a 6-month malaria season. A secondary objective is to determine if SC administration of L9LS at 900 mg (compared to placebo) mediates protection against naturally occurring Pf infection in healthy Malian adult females stratified by weight during a single malaria season.
This is an age-descending, randomized, placebo-controlled trial that will evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of a Trivalent Salmonella conjugate vaccine (TSCV). The trial will proceed from adults, to children, to toddlers, and then to infants.
EARTH study is conducted as part of the EPIICAL project. It is a prospective cohort study which aims to monitor clinical, virological and immunological features of HIV-positive, early treated children (≤90 days after diagnosis), in order to identify participants with excellent viral and immunological control, and also other without excellent control, in order to stratify potential participants in proof-of-concept trials directed to HIV cure.
Two-arm, randomized, double-blinded and controlled clinical trial to first assess the safety and tolerability of the vaccine in a Phase 1b trial and proceed to assess its efficacy against clinical malaria in young children living in highly seasonal malaria areas of Mali
Background: Malaria is a disease that affects many people in Africa. It is caused by germs carried by some mosquitoes. A person bitten by an infected mosquito will get malaria. Most malaria infections cause only mild symptoms or none at all, but sometimes the disease can be deadly. Malaria can also harm pregnant women. They may lose their pregnancies or deliver too early, and the mother and newborn may die. An experimental malaria vaccine (PfSPZ) has shown some protection against malaria infection. It is not yet known if PfSPZ is safe for pregnant women. Objective: To test the PfSPZ vaccine in pregnant women. Eligibility: Healthy women aged 18 to 34 years at 14 to 32 weeks gestation with 1 fetus. Design: The study will be in Mali. Participants will have about 40 clinic visits over 20 months. They will be screened. They will have an ultrasound exam and a test of their heart function. They will have blood and urine tests. Participants will receive an injection through a needle into a vein on 3 visits over 1 month. Some will receive the PfSPZ vaccine; others will be injected with salt water. They will not know which injection they are getting. After the last injection, participants will visit the clinic every 2 weeks. They will have blood tests at each visit. After giving birth, participants and their infants will visit the clinic every 2 weeks for 4 months; then they will have visits each month until the infant is 1 year old. The infant will be examined and will have blood tests at each visit.
The purpose of this study is to compare the gametocytocidal and transmission reducing activity of artesunate-amodiaquine (ASAQ) and artemether-lumefantrine-amodiaquine (ALAQ) with and without a single dose of 0.25mg/kg primaquine (PQ). Outcome measures will include infectivity to mosquitoes at 2, 7 and 14 days after treatment, gametocyte density throughout follow-up, and safety measures including haemoglobin density and the frequency of adverse events.
