Antibiotics for trachoma

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).

Ocular immune responses, Chlamydia trachomatis infection and clinical signs of trachoma before and after azithromycin mass drug administration in a treatment naïve trachoma-endemic Tanzanian community

Conjunctival inflammation is the major clinical risk factor for progressive scarring trachoma, therefore, the reduction in inflammation associated with azithromycin treatment may be beneficial in limiting the development of potentially blinding disease sequelae. 

Planification de la transition relative à l’administration massive (AMM) de Zithromax

La présente boîte à outils pour la planification de la transition est l’un des trois documents de planification recommandés par la Coalition internationale pour la lutte contre le trachome aux directeurs de programme et aux partenaires de mise en œuvre, afin d’appuyer la transition qui permettra de passer des efforts d’élimination (interventions de santé publique) à la mise en place de services publics de routine.
