Study Background

Malaria is a serious infectious disease that affects people in some regions of the world and can cause severe health and economic problems. To help keep malaria from spreading, researchers need to find better ways to prevent and treat it. 

The purpose of this screening protocol is to enroll healthy volunteers that are willing and able to participate in future and current malaria research studies. These studies may include experimental medications, vaccines, and vaccine strategies to prevent malaria. 

Your participation in this study may contribute to the creation of better malaria treatment and preventive approaches in the future. Join us today! 

Additional Information

This screening protocol aims to find healthy volunteers to participate in one of our current or future malaria research studies at the NIH Clinical Center. 

You may qualify for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Between the ages of 18-50
  • No major health conditions
  • Reliable access to the NIH Clinical Center and available in the area for more than 1 year

Participation involves a single screening visit to the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. At this screening visit you will learn more about this study and have a chance to ask questions. You will then sign a consent form, review your medical history, complete a physical examination, and provide blood and urine samples to confirm that you are in good health. If you are eligible and decide to enroll in this study, you will be notified of other malaria trials and research opportunities. Additionally, you may be contacted by phone about once a year to check whether you are still interested in participating in these research studies and whether there have been any changes to your health.

You will receive $200 in compensation for the initial screening visit plus the potential to enroll in other compensated research studies in the future. 

There is no cost to participate in this study.
