Safety and Efficacy of IV CXA-101 and IV Ceftazidime in Patients With Complicated Urinary Tract Infections
A Multicenter, Double-blind, Randomized, Phase 2 Study to Compare the Safety and Efficacy of Intravenous CXA-101 and Intravenous Ceftazidime in Complicated Urinary Tract Infection, Including Pyelonephritis

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravenous CXA 101 and comparator in complicated urinary tract infection

This is a Phase 2, multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, comparative efficacy and safety study of IV CXA 101 versus IV ceftazidime for 7 to 10 days.

Subjects are followed up 6 to 9 days after the last dose of study drug to assess clinical signs and symptoms of infection. A Late Follow Up evaluation (21 to 28 days after the last dose of study drug) occurs for those subjects who respond to therapy. The primary assessment of effectiveness is the microbiological response (the eradication at post-therapy of the infectious organism identified at the start of study). An additional assessment of efficacy includes the overall clinical response, which is described as cured, improved, or failed. Safety assessments include the incidence of adverse events throughout the study, clinical laboratory tests (hematology, serum chemistry, and urinalysis) and physical examinations at the start of the study and post-therapy.

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males and females 18 to 90 years of age, inclusive.

  3. Clinical signs and/or symptoms of cUTI, either of:

    a. Pyelonephritis, as indicated by both of the following: i. Fever (oral temperature ≥ 37.8°C); ii. Flank pain or costovertebral angle tenderness;


b. Complicated lower UTI, as indicated by both of the following: i. At least one of the following new or worsening symptoms:

  • Dysuria;
  • Frequency;
  • Suprapubic pain;
  • Urgency

ii. At least one of the following complicating factors:
