Griffith University is seeking healthy, non-smoker males aged 18-45 years to participate in a study at Robina Hospital examining the infectivity of malaria parasites in humans.
The results from this study are critical for further human clinical studies including the development of a malaria vaccine.
This study will involve administering malaria parasites in red blood cells to study participants and monitoring the development of the parasites in the blood. Anti-malarial medication will be administered once the malaria parasites reach a defined low level in the blood and before the onset of illness.
