Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: A
Drug: ceftaroline
Single parenteral infusion at a dose of 8 mg/kg for subjects weighing less than 75 kg or at a dose of 600 mg for subjects weighing greater than or equal to 75 kg infused over 60 minutes.
Other Names:
  • ceftaroline for injection
  • ceftaroline fosamil

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of Ceftaroline After Administration of Ceftaroline Fosamil at a Dose of 8 mg/kg up to a Maximum Dose of 600 mg Via IV Infusion Over 60 Minutes. [ Time Frame: 12 hours after infusion ]
    The maximum plasma concentration (Cmax ) occurred around the time of the end of study drug infusion.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Adverse Events (AEs) Reported After Starting Study Drug Administration (Treatment Emergent Adverse Events, TEAEs) by Relationship to Ceftaroline (Related or Unrelated). [ Time Frame: Signing of Informed Consent Form (ICF) to last follow up (FU) visit, study day 7 (+-2 days). ]

    A TEAE is any untoward medical occurrence a subject experiences following study drug administration.

    Subjects were monitored for TEAEs from the start of infusion of ceftaroline fosamil on Study Day 1 through the follow-up contact on Day 7.
