If tigecycline clearance increases with body size then serum exposure values will be lower in obese class III compared to normal weight subjects because exposure changes inversely with clearance when the dose is fixed without regard to weight.

Condition Intervention Phase
Obesity Drug: Tigecycline Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: Pharmacokinetics Of Tigecycline In Morbidly Obese Subjects

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Single-dose Serum AUC of Tigecycline Between Time 0 and 96 Hours [ Time Frame: 4 days (96 hours) ]
    The AUC is the area under the concentration time curve in serum measured in the unit of concentration in milligram of tigeycline per liter of plasma multiplied by the time interval in hours (hour*mg/L)
