Clinical Trial Description

GOAL-Post is comprised of two studies that will help refine recommendations for the duration of secondary prophylaxis for children diagnosed with latent RHD, which is currently not known. Aim 1: Compare the two-year risk of developing RHD (borderline or definite) between children and adolescents who completed the GOAL Trial with a normal echocardiogram (prior diagnosis of latent RHD) and age/sex/and geographically matched controls with repeated normal echocardiograms (normal in both the original GOAL screening in 2017/2018 and in the planned GOAL-Post screening in 2021). Aim 2: Determine the five-year rate of RHD progression and regression among children with persistent latent RHD who receive secondary antibiotic prophylaxis (medium-term impact of prophylaxis). Five years includes time from initial GOAL enrollment to the end of GOAL-Post. Aim 3: Create a RHD biobank that will support further research on RHD genetic susceptibility and pathophysiology ;
