NCT01560143
First received: March 20, 2012
Last updated: July 19, 2012
Last verified: March 2012
  Purpose

If tigecycline clearance increases with body size then serum exposure values will be lower in obese class III compared to normal weight subjects because exposure changes inversely with clearance when the dose is fixed without regard to weight.
