Further study details as provided by Forest Laboratories:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The maximum plasma concentration (Cmax ) occurred around the time of the end of study drug infusion.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 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 ICF to last FU visit, study day 7 (+-2 days). ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    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.
