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

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

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The L-isomer of Ofloxacin.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.
