Feasibility of a serological assay for malaria elimination


  • This study aimes to test a number of diagnostic methods to see if they can reliably detect whether a person has previously been exposed to malaria and whether these methods can accurately show when a person is completely free from malaria. We aim to find out whether any of the testing methods might be suitable for use in areas where transmission levels of malaria are low, or where a country is trying to certify absence of the disease
  • Presently recruiting at UCLH
  • Eligible patients will be asked to come in at time points 1, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months for blood sampling.
