Two to three million people die each year from
malaria infection and to date there is no effective vaccine. Researchers
at the University of Oxford have developed several new malaria
vaccines and have been conducting clinical trials of these vaccines
since 1999. New vaccine strategies are being developed all the
Healthy volunteers aged between 18 and 45 who have
not had malaria are required to participate in our clinical trials
programme at different times in the year. Volunteers should live
within easy travelling distance of Oxford and are compensated
for their time and travelling expenses.
Each time a new study is planned we have to get
ethical approval from the Oxford Research Ethics Committee and
the vaccines receive a license from the Medicines Control Agency.
If you are interested in possibly taking part in one of our studies
then we will send you out an information sheet giving you full
