This study suggests biannual administration of single-dose azithromycin to children does not result in excess azithromycin resistance in S. pneumoniae and E. coli isolates over 24 months of follow-up.
The objective of this study was determining the prevalence of active trachoma and associated factors among children aged 1 to 9 years in rural community of Lemo district.
This study aims to determine the effect of MDA for trachoma elimination on M. genitalium prevalence, strain type and azithromycin resistance.
To increase understanding of MDA impact, this study investigated the prevalence of active trachoma and ocular C. trachomatis prevalence, organism load, and circulating strains at baseline and one-year post-MDA in The Gambia and Senegal.
This study assess the evidence supporting the antibiotic arm of the SAFE strategy by assessing the effects of antibiotics on both active trachoma (primary objective), Chlamydia trachomatis infection of the conjunctiva, antibiotic resistance, and adverse effects (secondary objectives).
