Brief Summary:

The primary objective is to assess the safety of different doses of ferroquine with artesunate (AS) in adult African patients with uncomplicated malaria.

The secondary objectives are to assess activity in reducing parasitemia and the pharmacokinetics of ferroquine and its metabolites.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Malaria Drug: ferroquine (SSR97193) Drug: amodiaquine Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The study duration is 30 days including a 2 day screening period, a 3 day treatment period with a follow-up period of 25 days. Patients remain hospitalized 4 days.
