Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the microbiological cure rate of doripenem in the treatment of patients with complicated urinary tract infection or pyelonephritis. The study will also characterize the safety and tolerability of treatment with doripenem in patients with complicated urinary tract infection or pyelonephritis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Urinary Tract Infections Pyelonephritis Drug: doripenem Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Doripenem is an antibiotic medication not yet approved by the US FDA. This is a phase 3, multi-center, prospective, open-label, single-arm study of doripenem in the treatment of complicated lower urinary tract infection or pyelonephritis in adults. Patients are hospitalized, but subsequently, patients may treated as outpatient or through home-based therapy at the discretion of the investigators. Conventional laboratory data will be collected from patients at specified times throughout the study. The primary endpoint is microbiological response measured at test of cure visit. The patients will receive doripenem with duration of therapy up to 10 days.
