Study Evaluating Tigecycline in Selected Serious Infections Due to Resistant Gram-Negative Organisms
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of tigecycline in the treatment of subjects with selected serious infections caused by resistant gram-negative bacteria, eg, Acinetobacter baumannii, Enterobacter species, Klebsiella pneumoniae or other resistant gram-negative pathogens, for whom antibiotics have failed or who cannot tolerate other appropriate antimicrobial therapies. The primary efficacy endpoint will be the clinical response.
A Phase 3, Open-label, Noncomparative Study of Tigecycline for the Treatment of Subjects With Selected Serious Infections Due to Resistant Gram-negative Organisms Such as Enterobacter Species, Acinetobacter Baumannii, and Klebsiella Pneumoniae

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Male or female subjects aged 18 years or older
Isolation of a resistant gram-negative pathogen, eg, Enterobacter species, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, or other resistant gram-negative pathogens, alone or as 1 isolate of a polymicrobial infection
Resistant gram-negative organisms are defined by the likely presence of ESBL or related mechanisms which limit the therapeutic alternatives for the treatment of complicated infections
Subjects with any concomitant condition or taking any concomitant medication that, in the opinion of the investigator, could preclude an evaluation of a response or make it unlikely that the contemplated course of therapy or follow-up assessment will be completed or that will substantially increase the risk associated with the subject's participation in this study
Anticipated length of antibiotic therapy < 7 days
Known or suspected hypersensitivity to tigecycline or other compounds related to this class of antibacterial agents (eg, tetracyclines, minocycline, doxycycline)
