  • Optimal Chemopreventive Regimens to Prevent Malaria and Improve Birth Outcomes in Uganda

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This trial tests the hypothesis that intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp) with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) + dihydroartemisin-piperaquine (DP) will significantly reduce the risk of adverse birth outcomes compared to IPTp with SP alone or DP alone. This double-blinded randomized controlled phase III trial of 2757 HIV uninfected pregnant women enrolled at 12-20 weeks gestation will be randomized in equal proportions to one of three IPTp treatment arms: 1) SP given every 4 weeks, or 2) DP given every 4 weeks, or 3) SP+DP given every 4 weeks. SP or DP placebos will be used to ensure adequate blinding is achieved in the study and follow-up will end 28 days after giving birth.
