  1. Antimalarial prophylaxis : Use and adverse events in visitors to the Kruger National Park.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To determine the use of antimalarial prophylaxis and the relative frequency of adverse events with different regimens in visitors to the Kruger National Park.

    Design

    Retrospective postal survey of a cohort of 7 397 visitors during April 1996.

    Telephonic interviews were conducted with all respondents who reported neuropsychiatry adverse events necessitating medical attention, and their medical caregivers.

    Results

Adverse events were reported by 23.8% of travellers and were more common in the C & P group than the mefloquine group (28.9% v. 25.0%, P=0.0100).

    Gastro-intestinal side-effects were significantly more common in the C & P group (nausea (P=0.0170), Diarrhoea (P=0.0008), mouth ulcers (P=0.0000)), while neuropsychiatric side-effects were more common in the mefloquine group (depression (P=0.0000), light-headedness (P=0.0009), anxiety (P=0.0060)). Only 30% of travellers reported using antimalarial drugs both regularly as prescribed and for 4 weeks after leaving the malaria area.

    The most commonly reported reason for changing prophylaxis was advice from a physician or pharmacist (41.9%). (...)
