Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center (Seattle MCTC)
Screening for malaria infection in people with no symptoms
The Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center is recruiting for a research study, testing for malaria infection in people who grew up in areas where malaria is widespread. Some people can have a malaria infection that does not cause symptoms (“asymptomatic”), and this is what we are looking for in this study. For those people who test positive for malaria infection, we will make sure they are treated to clear the malaria, as well as study their blood to understand why asymptomatic infections occur.
Study participation includes:
Lived in a malaria endemic region during childhood
Lived in a malaria endemic region for at least 2 years within the past 10 years
Willing to donate 10 mL of blood for testing
You will not be eligible for the study if you:
Have an acute illness at time of screening
Have a fever of 100.4° Fahrenheit or higher
Plan to travel during the study period
If you do not meet the eligibility criteria, but wish to participate in a future study, please contact us.
