New antimalarial combination confirms its potential use in treating drug-resistant malaria

three-day treatment period; and a second study will compare CDA to Lapdap alone. If the development of CDA is successful, it is expected to be available in 2008 as a convenient, once-daily dose. CDA will be made available to the public sector of malaria-endemic countries at preferential prices in order to maximise its availability to those in need.

CDA is being developed in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the World Health Organization's Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (WHO/TDR), Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV), the University of Liverpool, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

Dr. Robert Ridley, Director of WHO/TDR, stated, "The collaboration between WHO/TDR, MMV, GSK and our academic partners has enabled us to combine resources and expertise to speed the development of CDA."

"GSK is committed to research and development into treatments for diseases of the developing world," said Dr. Lynn Marks, Senior Vice President, Infectious Diseases Medicine Development Centre for GSK. "Public-private partnerships, such as this one for CDA, are vital in ensuring that urgently needed medicines are made available as quickly and safely as possible."
