Comparison of Sequential IV/PO Moxifloxacin With IV Piperacillin/Tazobactam Followed by PO Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid in Patients With a Complicated Skin and Skin Structure Infection

2014-08-27 03:41:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients who are considered suitable by their physicians, to take part in this research, will have a physical examination (including an Electrocardiogram (ECG)), blood and urine samples taken, as well as a sample of the secretions or tissue around their infection site. In addition, the site of the infection will be photographed. The patients will be randomly assigned one of the treatments: intravenous (IV)/per oral (PO) moxifloxacin (drug under evaluation) or IV piperacillin/tazobactam followed by PO amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (i.e., one of the reference treatments for this kind of infection). The maximum treatment duration will be 21 days, and the minimum will be 7 days. During the hospitalization, the patients will have a physical examination every day. On Day 3-5 during therapy as well as at the end of treatment, the patients will have repeated examinations. These tests and evaluations will be repeated 14 to 28 days after the end of treatment. During this visit, blood and urine samples will be taken only if judged necessary by the physicians.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A fixed-ratio combination of amoxicillin trihydrate (see AMOXICILLIN), an aminopenicillin, and potassium clavulanate (see CLAVULANIC ACID), a beta-lactamase inhibitor, used to treat a broad-spectrum of bacterial infections, especially resistant strains.

Clavulanic acid and its salts and esters. The acid is a suicide inhibitor of bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes from Streptomyces clavuligerus. Administered alone, it has only weak antibacterial activity against most organisms, but given in combination with beta-lactam antibiotics prevents antibiotic inactivation by microbial lactamase.

Acids, salts, and derivatives of clavulanic acid (C8H9O5N). They consist of those beta-lactam compounds that differ from penicillin in having the sulfur of the thiazolidine ring replaced by an oxygen. They have limited antibacterial action, but block bacterial beta-lactamase irreversibly, so that similar antibiotics are not broken down by the bacterial enzymes and therefore can exert their antibacterial effects.

Semisynthetic, broad-spectrum, AMPICILLIN derived ureidopenicillin antibiotic proposed for PSEUDOMONAS infections. It is also used in combination with other antibiotics.

A broad-spectrum semisynthetic antibiotic similar to AMPICILLIN except that its resistance to gastric acid permits higher serum levels with oral administration.
