Body Temperature Trends and Fever Risk in the Parasitaemia of Plasmodium Falciparum Treated Children at Lake-Alau, Borno State, North Eastern Nigeria

M. Kokori, A. M. Inuwa, M. Babakura, A. M. Garba

The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between body temperature patterns and fever ( 37.50C) risks in the parasitaemia of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in children (59 months). The ever increasing resistance to monotherapies informed the assessment of the combination therapies of Artesunate+Sulphadoxine-Pyrimethamine (AT+SP) and Amodiaquine+ Sulphadoxine-Pyrimethamine (AQ+SP) at the malaria endemic settlements of Lake-alau, Borno State, and North- Eastern Nigeria. The result shows a response of parasitaemia to body temperatures was 55.77 % in AT+SP treated children compared to higher response of 64.29 % by AQ+SP patients. Similarly, the slope of regression showed a temperature clearance of 0.2071 0C for AT+SP in contrast to 0.1714 0C for AQ+SP which relates for each l of depleted blood parasites there was a higher temperature relief in AT+SP than AQ+SP patients having a mean marginal difference of 0.0357 0C between the two respective drug groups. In a similar vein, the proportion fever risk was higher (55.75 %) in AQ+SP treated children compared to AT+SP (50.69 %). Conversely, the rate of fever clearance due to the percentage of each parasite cleared was 12.243 % compared to 12.643 % for the two respective drugs, with mean terminal parasite clearance of 99.86 % and 99.7 %, respectively.
