The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop regarding clinical trial design considerations for malaria drug development. FDA is interested in discussing the scientific challenges pertaining to malaria drug development and malaria parasite detection methods used as endpoints in clinical trials. This public workshop is intended to provide information for and gain perspective from health care providers, other U.S. government agencies, public health organizations, academic experts, and industry on various aspects of the design of clinical trials evaluating new drugs to treat malaria. The input from this public workshop will also help in developing topics for future discussion.
