Description:
Bangladesh is one of the endemic countries for Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL). MSF ran a VL treatment clinic in the most endemic district (Fulbaria) between 2010 and 2013 using a semi-ambulatory regimen for primary VL of 15mg per kg Liposomal Amphotericin-B (AmBisome) in three equal doses of 5mg per kg. The main objective of this study was to analyze the effectiveness and safety of this regimen after a 12 month follow up period by retrospective analysis of routinely collected program data. A secondary objective was to explore risk factors for relapse.
