The purpose of this research study is to measure the levels of ceftobiprole in the blood, urine and tissues of the lungs during and after administration of four doses of ceftobiprole. Safety of the drug will also be evaluated.

Further study details as provided by Basilea Pharmaceutica:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics (to measure the levels of ceftobiprole in the blood and urine and tissues of the lungs) during dosing and 24 hours after last dose infused [ Time Frame: 2 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety will be evaluated throughout the study. [ Time Frame: Study Duration ]

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: October 2008
Study Completion Date: November 2009
Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ceftobiprole
Ceftobiprole, 1 G q8h as 4 hour infusions for 2 days
Drug: Ceftobiprole
Ceftobiprole, 1 G q8h as 4 hour infusions for 2 days

Detailed Description:
Patients will receive a intravenous dose of ceftobiprole infused over 4 hours. Multiple blood samples will be obtained to determine the concentration of Ceftobiprole in the blood. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples will be collected to determine the concentration of ceftobiprole in the BAL fluid. The penetration of the drug into the lung will be calculated. Four 1000mg administered every 8 hours
