NCT ID: NCT05634759 Recruiting - Trachoma Clinical Trials

Enhancing the A in SAFE for Trachoma

Start date: May 4, 2022
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This study will assess the cost and feasibility of two strategies of enhanced Mass Drug Administration (MDA) of Zithromax to treat trachoma in the Republic of South Sudan. The secondary objectives of this study are to measure trachoma infection outcomes during the 12-month follow-up period among children up to 9 years of age.

NCT ID: NCT05471544 Active, not recruiting - Malaria Clinical Trials

Effectiveness, Feasibility and Acceptability of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention in Aweil South County in South Sudan

Start date: July 18, 2022
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study aims to explore whether SMC is an effective intervention in the context of Northen Bahr el Gazal state, South Sudan. It also aims to assess the protective efficacy of the antimalarials used in SMC in the target population and investigate levels of parasite resistance in the study counties. If successful, this trial should provide the evidence for SMC to be included in malaria programming and policy in South Sudan. A Type II hybrid effectiveness-implementation study design will be used to evaluate the effects of a clinical intervention on relevant outcomes whilst collecting information on implementation. It is designed to determine feasibility and effectiveness of an innovative intervention, as well as the protective efficacy of the antimalarial drugs used. The study consists of five components: 1) A series of cross-sectional surveys establishing confirmed malaria cases in children; 2) A prospective cohort study to determine the protective efficacy of SPAQ (if SPAQ provides 28 days of protection from infection) and whether drug concentrations and/or resistance influence the duration of protection; 3) A resistance markers study in children 3-59 months in the research county; 4) Modelling the protective effect of SPAQ in South Sudan to determine where SMC could be a suitable malaria prevention strategy in other areas of the country, and 5) A process evaluation to understand feasibility and acceptability of the SMC intervention in South Sudan.

NCT ID: NCT05449717 Recruiting - Leishmaniasis Clinical Trials

Incidence of Relapse and Post-Kala-Azar Dermal Leishmaniasis in South Sudan

Start date: May 31, 2022
Study type: Observational

This study aims to describe the burden of Post-Kala-Azar Dermal Leishmaniasis and visceral leishmaniasis relapse in a cohort of patients discharged after successful treatment of primary visceral leishmaniasis.

NCT ID: NCT05364593 Recruiting - Tuberculosis Clinical Trials

Evaluation of Point-of-care Ultrasound in Children From 6 Months to 15 Years With Presumptive Tuberculosis

Start date: June 26, 2019
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) in children is particularly challenging in low and middle-income countries (LMIC), and a high number of children remain undiagnosed and untreated. A delay in diagnosis can lead to an increase in preventable morbidity and mortality. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a bedside, non-invasive, inexpensive imaging tool, and TB-focused POCUS has been used and validated for adults with HIV. This study aims to describe the TB-focused POCUS findings for children with presumptive TB aged between 6 months and 15 years old, and to stratify the results per HIV, nutritional status and age. This is a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) multicentric study which takes place in Guinea Bissau and South Sudan.

NCT ID: NCT04568499 Completed - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Presenting Nutrition Characteristics, Comorbidities and Outcomes of COVID-19 in African Humanitarian Settings

Start date: November 27, 2020
Study type: Observational

This study will characterize risk factors for poor COVID-19 outcomes (hospitalization, death) and clinical progression of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in South Sudan and Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
