LEVOS - Levofloxacin and Rifampicin Therapy in the Treatment of OsteoArticular Prothethic Infection

2014-08-27 03:22:01 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective is: to assess the microbiological success of the combination of levofloxacin and rifampicin, administered for 32 to 37 days, as oral replacement therapy of an empirical antibiotic therapy of a maximum of 5 to 10 days given intravenously, in the treatment of OsteoArticular Prosthetic Infections (OAPI), with a two-stage revision of the prosthesis.

The secondary endpoints are:

- To assess the rate of clinical failure 12 months after the reimplantation of the prosthesis.

- To assess the joint mobility function score 12 months after the reimplantation of the prosthesis.

- To assess the safety of the combination of levofloxacin and rifampicin.

- To investigate prognostic factors for success after the end of treatment and at 12 months after the reimplantation of the prosthesis.
