|Official Title:||A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Multinational Trial of Intravenous Telavancin Versus Standard Therapy for Treatment of Complicated Gram-Positive Skin and Skin Structure Infections (Gram Positive cSSSI)|
|Study Start Date :||February 2004|
|Primary Completion Date :||September 2004|
|Study Completion Date :||September 2004|
Telavancin 7.5 mg/kg/day, amended to 10 mg/kg/day, IV (intravenously) for up to 14 days
Active Comparator: Standard of care for cSSSI
cSSSI - comlicated skin and skin structure infections
Drug: vancomycin or antistaphylococcal penicillin
Vancomycin 1 Gram IV (intravenously) every 12 hrs or nafcillin 2 Grams, oxacillin 2 Grams, or (in South Africa) cloxacillin 0.5 - 1 Gram, IV (intravenously) every 6 hrs for up to 14 days.
- Clinical Response Which is Measured at Test of Cure (TOC) in the Clinically Evaluable (CE) Population [ Time Frame: 7 to 14 days following completion of antibiotic treatment ]
- Cure: Resolution of clinically significant signs, symptoms associated with the skin infection present at study admission or improvement to the extent that the infectious process had been controlled and no further therapy with study medication was necessary.
- Failure: Inadequate response to study therapy or the need for significant surgical management (e.g. more than just routine debridement) of the infection site following antibiotic therapy and prior to Test-of-Cure (TOC) visit
- Indeterminate: Inability to determine outcome.
