  • Pharmacokinetics [ Time Frame: Study Day 1, 3, 5 and 7 or 8 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: Study Days 1 through 16 or 17 ]

Estimated Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: June 2007
Study Completion Date: May 2008
Primary Completion Date: May 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A Drug: daptomycin
6mg/kg i.v.; every 48 hours for a total of 3 doses
Other Name: Cubicin

Detailed Description:

Patients with moderate or severe renal insufficiency (CLcr <50 mL/min) are not only at increased risk of infection, but also have worse outcomes from a given infection. In fact, infection accounts for the second leading cause of mortality among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Many of these infections are due to sepsis, primarily rising from the vascular access and peritoneal catheter sites.

This is an open label, non-randomized, non-comparative Phase 1 study designed to evaluate the PK profile, safety and tolerability of i.v. daptomycin. Non-infected subjects with end stage renal disease undergoing HD or CAPD will be enrolled in this in-patient study.
