Study Comparing Tigecycline Versus Ceftriaxone Sodium Plus Metronidazole in Complicated Intra-abdominal Infection (cIAI)

This study has been completed.

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Wyeth is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Pfizer
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00230971
First received: September 30, 2005
Last updated: February 20, 2013
Last verified: February 2013
  Purpose
This is a study of the safety and efficacy of tigecycline to ceftriaxone sodium plus metronidazole in hospitalized subjects with cIAI. Subjects will be followed for efficacy through the test-of-cure assessment. Safety evaluations will occur through the treatment and post-treatment periods and continue through resolution or stability of the adverse event(s).

Condition Intervention Phase
Appendicitis Cholecystitis Diverticulitis Intra-Abdominal Abscess Intra-Abdominal Infection Peritonitis Drug: tigecycline Drug: ceftriaxone plus metronidazole Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Open-Label, Randomized Comparative Study of Tigecycline vs Ceftriaxone Sodium Plus Metronidazole for the Treatment of Hospitalized Subjects With Complicated Intra-abdominal Infection

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Clinically Evaluable (CE) Patients With Clinical Response of Cure at the Test-of-Cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]
    CE population were those who completed TOC assessment of cure or failure (but not indeterminate) or, in case of premature discontinuation due to lack of efficacy, had completed end of treatment assessment such that assessment of clinical response could be made. Clinical response was assigned by investigator per protocol-specified guidelines and defined as: test article and initial intervention (operative and/or radiologically controlled drainage procedure) resolved the intra-abdominal infection. TOC performed 10-28 days after last dose of study drug.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Microbiologically Evaluable (ME) Patients With a Clinical Response of Cure at Test-of-Cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]
    ME population were subjects who were clinically evaluable and had baseline culture with at least 1 identified isolate that was susceptible to study drug and comparator. The clinical response was assigned by the investigator according to the protocol-specified guidelines. A clinical response of cure was defined as: the test article and the initial intervention (operative and/or radiologically controlled drainage procedure) resolved the intra-abdominal infection.

  • Number of Microbiologically Evaluable (ME) Patients by Microbiological Response at Test-of-Cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]
    Microbiological response was assessed at patient level was the combined responses for all baseline isolates identified in intra-abdominal and blood cultures. Eradication=baseline isolate not recovered from primary infection site/blood; Presumed Eradication=No sample for culture, clinical response was cure; Persistence=baseline isolate recovered from primary infection site/blood; Presumed Persistence=No sample available for culture, clinical response was failure; Superinfection=culture from primary infection site with new isolate not identified at baseline, clinical response was failure.

  • Number of Days of Inpatient Healthcare Resource Utilization on or Before Test-of-Cure [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]
    Healthcare resource utilization assessment included days of overall inpatient hospitalization, days of primary inpatient hospitalization, days of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) treatment and days of non-ICU inpatient hospitalization
