The three presentations and expert discussion by Dr Rob Commons, Dr Alison Roth and Dr James Watson, chaired by Professor Sir Nicholas White (Mahidol Oxford Research Unit) and Dr Chau Nguyen Hoang (Oxford University Clinical Research Unit), are now available.

Watch our expert webinar Radical cure of P. vivax: can we do better?

The webinar took place earlier this month and featured two new studies using WWARN-hosted clinical trial data showing that the dosing of the 8-aminoquinolin drugs primaquine and tafenoquine can be substantially improved. These analyses include the majority of all studied vivax malaria patients who received 8-aminoquinoline drugs over the last 20 years. Laboratory work confirms these findings and provides important new information on the mechanism of action of these essential medicines.

  • Dr Rob Commons, Menzies School of Health Research, on 8AQ efficacy in clinical trials
  • Dr Alison Roth, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, on laboratory studies assessing hypnozoitocidal activity
  • Dr James Watson, Oxford University Clinical Research Unit, on the reassessment of tafenoquine pharmacometrics

Videos of the three webinar presentations are available on our TropMed Webinars page
