Active Ingredient: Azithromycin
In 1993, chloroquine treatment failure rates had been as high as 57. Five years later, chloroquine in vitro testing inhibited blood schizont development in 96. In the second open-label study, 64 semi-immune subjects with P.
By day 28, azithromycin had continued to suppress fever and parasites in only 33. These outcomes were in contrast to the treatment effect reported among subjects who received combination therapy.
ACPR at day 7 was 96.

The results of several published clinical trials, conference presentations and data from a recently published Cochrane review are consolidated in Table 2, while important contextual factors are discussed below.
Recrudescence was defined as the reappearance of asexual blood-stage parasites of the same genotype as Day 0 parasites, whereas re-infection was defined as infection by a different genotype.
Subjects were censored at the time of re-infection. Paired blood specimens, collected before treatment and at the time of recurrent asexual parasitaemia treatment failure, were evaluated for mutations in the P. For study 1134, molecular detection of the K 76 T mutation associated with CQ resistance was detected by means of a standardised real-time PCR-based diagnostic assay.
In addition, specimens collected on Day 0 from subjects who responded to treatment also were analysed for pfcrt gene mutations. Study assessments All subjects were hospitalised and monitored until three consecutive blood smears were negative for asexual P.
Peripheral blood smears for parasite counts were obtained at eight-hour intervals until clearance was demonstrated, then on Day 7 and weekly thereafter through Day 42 to monitor recrudescence. Vital signs, clinical signs and symptoms, adverse events AEs, and concomitant medications were assessed for all subjects on each day of treatment Days 0, and 2 and at each post-therapy visit Days 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42.
Haematology and serum chemistry laboratory tests were performed at Baseline and Day 3 and at subsequent visits if clinically indicated.
