Malaria Vaccine Trials and Immunity

Two to three million people die each year from malaria infection and to date there is no effective vaccine. Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed several new malaria vaccines and have been conducting clinical trials of these vaccines since 1999. New vaccine strategies are being developed all the time.

Would you be willing to help in a clinical study at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford, aimed at developing an effective vaccine against malaria?

Healthy volunteers aged between 18 and 45 who have not had malaria are required to participate in our clinical trials programme at different times in the year. Volunteers should live within easy travelling distance of Oxford and are compensated for their time and travelling expenses.

Each time a new study is planned we have to get ethical approval from the Oxford Research Ethics Committee and the vaccines receive a license from the Medicines Control Agency. If you are interested in possibly taking part in one of our studies then we will send you out an information sheet giving you full details of what the current or next study involves. If we are currently not recruiting for a study then we will simply ask your permission to keep your name on record so that we can contact you in the future.

By contacting us for more information you are under no obligation to take part.
