Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome measure will be the proportion of "Therapeutic Failures" diagnosed during the final (week 26) visit or before, according to defined clinical criteria. [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (6 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evidence of clinical or laboratory toxicity during the treatment period. [ Time Frame: During the treatment period (20 or 28 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients with "parasitologic" response 26 weeks after the initiation of treatment. [ Time Frame: 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
