University of Southampton seek volunteers to test new malaria vaccine

Malaria is still one of the world’s most deadly diseases, but studies being carried out at the University of Southampton hope to find a new malaria vaccine.  The university is appealing for volunteers aged between 18-45 to undergo testing.

Southampton University will be working with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Oxford to trial three vaccinations on 48 volunteers over an eight-week period.

Prof Saul Faust, professor of paediatric infectious diseases and immunology, is leading the study.  He said:  “We make it clear that by taking part you are likely to get ill and spend some time being treated in hospital. But the vaccine means some people are not going to be as badly affected.

“They might not get the full symptoms so they need to be studied until the malaria is gone.”

There are still 13 places available on the trial in Southampton.
