NCT ID: NCT04774991 Not yet recruiting - Mortality Clinical Trials

Azithromycin for Child Survival in Niger: Delivery Trial

AVENIR
Start date: May 2021
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This cluster-randomized trial aims to compare the impact of different delivery approaches to azithromycin distribution on coverage, costs, and feasibility outcomes. The investigators hypothesize that door-to-door delivery will have higher coverage and costs and similar feasibility and acceptability compared to fixed-point delivery.

NCT ID: NCT04260477 Not yet recruiting - Tuberculosis Clinical Trials

Novel Triple-dose Tuberculosis Retreatment Regimen

Tri-Do-Re
Start date: March 1, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

To determine if a high-dose first-line regimen is non-inferior (non-inferiority margin 10%) in terms of safety to the same regimen at regular dosing, in previously treated patients with rifampicin-susceptible recurrent Tuberculosis (TB).

NCT ID: NCT04224987 Recruiting - Mortality Clinical Trials

Azithromycin for Child Survival in Niger: Mortality and Resistance Trial

AVENIR
Start date: November 24, 2020
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The MORDOR trial found that biannual distribution of azithromycin to children 1-59 months old reduced child mortality. The World Health Organization (WHO) released conditional guidelines for this intervention, which include targeting azithromycin distributions to children 1-11 months of age in high mortality settings.Targeting treatment to children 1-11 months old could reduce antimicrobial resistance by limiting antibiotic distributions while treating children at the highest mortality risk. However, this targeted intervention has not yet been tested. The AVENIR mortality/resistance trial aims to assess the efficacy of age-based targeting of biannual azithromycin distribution on mortality as well as determine the impact of age-based targeting on antimicrobial resistance.

NCT ID: NCT04185402 Not yet recruiting - Trachoma Clinical Trials

Azithromycin Reduction to Reach Elimination of Trachoma

ARRET
Start date: April 1, 2021
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The investigators propose a randomized controlled trial of discontinuation versus continuation of annual mass azithromycin distribution in hypoendemic communities of Maradi, Niger. The investigators will randomize communities with up to 20% Trachomatous Inflammation - Follicular (TF) prevalence following at least 5 years of mass azithromycin distribution to discontinuation or continuation of 3 additional years of annual mass azithromycin distribution.

NCT ID: NCT03923725 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Plasmodium Falciparum Malaria (Uncomplicated)

A Trial to Compare the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Combinations of 3 Anti-malarial Drugs Against Combina-tions of 2 Anti-malarial Drugs.

DeTACT-Africa
Start date: September 1, 2020
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

A partially blinded randomised controlled non-inferiority trial of the Triple ACTs artemether-lumefantrine + amodiaquine (AL+AQ) and artesunate-mefloquine + piperaquine (ASMQ+PPQ) with the ACTs artemether-lumefantrine + placebo (AL+PBO) and artesunate-mefloquine + placebo (ASMQ+PBO) for the treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria to assess and compare their efficacy, safety, tolerability.

NCT ID: NCT03474276 Completed - Clinical trials for Moderate Acute Malnutrition

Comparing Several Strategies to Manage Moderate Acute Malnutrition Among Children From 6 to 24 Months Old

MALINEA
Start date: January 31, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this open-label randomized controlled trial conducted in four African countries (Madagascar, Niger, Central African Republic and Senegal) is to compare three strategies of renutrition for moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) in children based on modulation of the gut microbiota with enriched flours alone, enriched flours with prebiotics or enriched flours coupled with antibiotic treatment. Cognitive development of children (Senegal) will also be studied and compared.

NCT ID: NCT03431675 Withdrawn - Clinical trials for Meningitis, Meningococcal

Ciprofloxacin for the Prevention of Meningococcal Meningitis 2018

Start date: March 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The trial is an interventional, cluster-randomized trial to assess the impact of oral ciprofloxacin for household and community contacts of meningitis cases on the incidence of meningitis during an epidemic. The trial contains a nested sub-study ("resistance study") to assess the effect of a single dose of ciprofloxacin on the prevalence of fluoroquinolone-resistant enterobacteriaceae in the study area.

NCT ID: NCT03338244 Completed - Childhood Mortality Clinical Trials

Mortality Reduction After Oral Azithromycin Contingency: Mortality Study

MORDORIIMortY5
Start date: October 20, 2017
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

MORDOR was a cluster-randomized placebo controlled trial that assessed the efficacy of mass azithromycin distributions for the prevention of childhood mortality. All communities were subsequently treated with mass azithromycin for one year. The present trial re-randomized communities to azithromycin or placebo for the fourth and fifth year of the study.

NCT ID: NCT03280082 Completed - Malnutrition Clinical Trials

Use of MUAC as Basic Criterion for Admission, Follow-up and Exit From the Ambulatory Nutrition Program

MUAC120
Start date: June 25, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this study is to provide comprehensive documentation of the relevant results and operational implications of this new model using Mid-Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC) as the single anthropometric criterion for admission, monitoring and exit of non- complicated in Niger.

A Survey of Hospitalizations in Cardiology Units in Sub-Saharan Africa

FEVRIER
Start date: February 1, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

FEVRIER study is an observatory of hospitalizations in cardiology units in sub-Saharan Africa.
