  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to compare the microbiological cure rate of doripenem versus a comparator antibiotic 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.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Microbiological response measured at test of cure visit at early follow-up.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical response (cure) assessed at early follow-up visit. Proportion of patients with sustained microbiological and clinical response measured at late follow-up visit. Safety evaluations will be conducted throughout the study.

Detailed Description:
Doripenem is an antibiotic medication not yet approved by the US FDA. This is a phase 3, multi-center, randomized, prospective, double-blind study of doripenem versus comparator in the treatment of complicated lower urinary tract infections (UTI) or pyelonephritis in adults. After the screening, patients are randomized to receive either doripenem or comparator. Patients are hospitalized, but subsequently, patients may be treated as outpatient or through home-based therapy at the investigators' discretion. Conventional laboratory data are collected from all patients at specified times throughout the study. The primary endpoint is microbiological response measured at test of cure visit. The patients receive either doripenum or comparator; duration of therapy is 10 days.
