Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the safety and tolerability of ceftaroline versus ceftriaxone in pediatric subjects age 2 months to <18 years with CABP requiring hospitalization [ Time Frame: Between 1 and 50 days. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Evaluate the safety and tolerability of IV administered ceftaroline fosamil in children with CABP. Summaries of AEs, SAEs, deaths, laboratory evaluations (hematology studies, comprehensive and metabolic panel), vital signs.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the efficacy of ceftaroline versus ceftriaxone in pediatric subjects ages 2 months to under 18 years with CABP. [ Time Frame: Between 4 and 50 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Clinical response by subject and by baseline pathogen at Study Day 4 in the Modified Intent-to-Treat (MITT) and Microbiological modified Intent-to Treat (mMITT) Populations
    • Clinical stability by subject and by baseline pathogen at Study Day 4 in the MITT and mMITT Populations
    • Clinical outcome at EOIV, EOT, and TOC in the MITT and Clinically Evaluable (CE) Populations
    • Clinical and microbiological outcomes by subject and by pathogen at TOC in the mMITT and Microbiologically Evaluable (ME) Populations
    • Clinical relapse at LFU in the MITT Population
    • Emergent infections in the mMITT Population

  • To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of ceftaroline in pediatric subjects ages 2 months to under 18 years. [ Time Frame: Between 4 and 50 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Analyze concentrations of ceftaroline, ceftaroline fosamil (prodrug), and ceftaroline M-1 (inactive metabolite) in plasma, and, if available, in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF; if collected as part of standard of care).
