Study to Evaluate Daptomycin Given During Dialysis and After Dialysis

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Cubist Pharmaceuticals LLC Identifier:
First received: April 15, 2009
Last updated: September 16, 2011
Last verified: September 2011
The purpose of this study is to determine whether daptomycin at a higher dose given during the last 30 minutes of a dialysis session is equal to a lower dose of daptomycin given after a dialysis session.

Condition Intervention Phase
End-stage Renal Disease Renal Failure Chronic Requiring Hemodialysis Drug: daptomycin Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective, Randomized, Crossover-design Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Daptomycin Administered at 9 mg/kg During and 6 mg/kg After Hemodialysis

Further study details as provided by Cubist Pharmaceuticals LLC:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of Area Under the Curve From Time 0 to Infinity [ Time Frame: Within 30 minutes prior to the start of the infusion, mid-infusion, and end of the infusion; at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 24, and 48 hours after the end of the infusion; and just prior to the next hemodialysis session (i.e., 68 hours post-infusion) ]
    Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve from time 0 to infinity for daptomycin doses

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment-emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 9 days after the last dose of study drug administration (Day 13 to Day 17 for those dosed on Day 8 and Day 20 to Day 24 for those dosed on Day 15). ]
    Safety was monitored throughout the study, including observation and reports of AEs as well as changes in physical findings, vital signs, ECGs, and laboratory tests.
