Pfizer
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01189487
First received: August 16, 2010
Last updated: July 9, 2012
Last verified: July 2012
  Purpose

Unasyn-S 12g/day (3 g four times a day) is the commonly used dosage depending on the severity for US, EU, China, Taiwan and Korea for over 20 years, however, Unasyn-S 12g/day has not yet been approved in Japan. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety in Japanese adult subjects with community acquired pneumonia receiving ampicillin sodium/sulbactam sodium, 12g/day (3 g four times a day ) IV.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response Rate (Clinical Response, Data Review Committee Assessment) [ Time Frame: End of treatment, Test of cure (7 days after End of treatment), Long term follow up (7 days after Test of cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rate was calculated from the following formula, "the number of participants assessed as effective" over "total participants excluding ones assessed as indeterminate" multiplied by 100.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Response Rate (Clinical Response, Investigator Assessment) [ Time Frame: End of treatment, Test of cure (7 days after End of treatment), Long term follow up (7 days after Test of cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rate was calculated from the following formula, "the number of participants assessed as effective" over "total participants EXCLUDING ones assessed as indeterminate" multiplied by 100.

  • The Tendency Toward Clinical Improvement (Investigator Assessment) [ Time Frame: Day 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of participants who showed tendency toward clinical improvement based on the assessment of temperature, white blood cell count, C-reactive protein, clinical symptoms on Day 4 and was determined to continue the treatment.

  • Eradication Rate (Bacteriological Response, Data Review Committee Assessment) [ Time Frame: Day 4, End of treatment, Test of cure (7 days after End of treatment), Long term follow up (7 days after Test of cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Eradication Rate was calculated from the following formula, "the number of participants assessed as eradication, presumed eradication or microbial substitution" over "total participants excluding ones assessed as indeterminate" multiplied by 100. Microbial substitution means the appearance of new pathogens other than the original pathogens in a specimen from the same location with signs and symptoms of infection after the original pathogens were eradicated by treatment.

  • Eradication Rate (Bacteriological Response, Investigator Assessment) [ Time Frame: Day 4, End of treatment, Test of cure (7 days after End of treatment), Long term follow up (7 days after Test of cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Eradication Rate was calculated from the following formula, "the number of participants assessed as eradication , presumed eradication or microbial substitution" over "total participants excluding ones assessed as indeterminate" multiplied by 100. Microbial substitution means the appearance of new pathogens other than the original pathogens in a specimen from the same location with signs and symptoms of infection after the original pathogens were eradicated by treatment.
