|Official Title:||A Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label Comparison of the Safety And Efficacy of Tigecycline With That of Ampicillin-Sulbactam or Amoxicillin-Clavulanate to Treat Complicated Skin And Skin Structure Infections|
- Number of Clinically Evaluable (CE) Patients With Clinical Response of Cure at the Test-of-cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]Investigator assigned clinical response of cure of the cSSSI defined as: resolution of all clinical signs and symptoms of infection (healing of chronic underlying skin ulcer not required) or improvement of signs or symptoms of the infection to such an extent that no further antibacterial therapy was necessary. 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.
- Number of Microbiologically Evaluable Patients With Clinical Response of Cure at the Test-of-cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]Investigator assigned clinical response of cure of the cSSSI defined as: resolution of all clinical signs and symptoms of infection (healing of chronic underlying skin ulcer not required) or improvement of signs or symptoms of the infection to such an extent that no further antibacterial therapy was necessary. ME population were subjects who were CE and had baseline culture with at least 1 identified isolate that was susceptible to study drug and comparator. TOC performed 8-50 days after last dose of study drug.
- Number of Microbiologically Evaluable Patients by Microbiologic Response at Test-of-Cure (TOC) Visit [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]Microbiological response assessed at patient level. Eradication=baseline isolate not present in repeat culture from the original infection site; Presumed Eradication=clinical response of cure precluded the availability of a specimen for culture; Persistence=baseline isolate present in repeat culture from the original infection site; Presumed Persistence=culture data not available for patients with a clinical response of failure; Superinfection=culture from the primary infection site had new pathogen not identified as a baseline isolate and clinical response was failure.
- Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) 50 and 90 by Baseline Isolate [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]In vitro activity of the study drugs against a range of pathogenic bacteria that cause complicated skin and skin structure infection (cSSSI) were analyzed using MIC. MIC 50 and MIC 90 are the lowest concentrations of a drug that inhibit the growth of 50% and 90% of a microorganism, respectively. TOC performed 8-50 days after last dose of study drug.
- Inpatient Healthcare Resource Utilization on or Before Test-of-Cure - Number of Patients [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks ]Healthcare resource utilization assessment included intensive care unit (ICU) and non-ICU inpatient hospitalization. TOC performed 8-50 days after last dose of study drug.

Active Comparator: 1
Arm 1: Tigecycline
Treatment A: Tigecycline every 12 hours intravenous (IV) (an initial dose of 100 mg followed by 50 mg every 12 hours)
Active Comparator: 2
Arm 2: Ampicillin-Sulbactam or Amoxicillin-Clavulanate plus or minus a glycopeptide
Ampicillin-sulbactam: 1.5 g (1 g ampicillin plus 0.5 g sulbactam) to 3 g (3 g ampicillin plus 1 g sulbactam) intravenous (IV) every 6 hrs or Amoxicillin-clavulanate: 1.2 g (1000 mg amoxicillin plus 200 mg clavulanate) IV every 6 to 8 hrs.
A glycopeptide antibiotic (either vancomycin 1 g IV every 12 hrs or teicoplanin IV loading dose of 400 mg the first day followed by a maintenance dose of 200 mg daily) may be added to the aminopenicillin/betalactamase inhibitor regimen if infection with methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is suspected or confirmed within the first 72 hrs of enrollment. If culture results fail to show a resistant organism, use of the glycopeptide may be discontinued.
