Webinar 'Evaluating antimalarial safety' from ACT consortium, Oct 7th 2014

Clinical trials are not suitable to identify rare, potentially serious adverse effects of drugs, or to define their safety in high risk populations.

Artemisinin-based combination therapies (or ACTs) are considered safe, but there are concerns over their potential to cause damage to parts of the brain. There is also a concern about their safety in patients infected with HIV.

Collating safety data is a challenge in Africa, where most antimalarials are used and more vulnerable populations reside.
