Brief Summary:
To investigate the pharmacokinetic characteristics of POL7080 co-administered with SoC during 10 to 14 days of treatment in VAP patients due to suspected or documented Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 25 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II, Open-label, Multi-center Study to Assess Pharmacokinetics (PK), Safety and Efficacy of POL7080 Co-administered With Standard of Care (SoC) Treatment in Patients With Ventilator- Associated Pneumonia (VAP) Due to Suspected or Documented Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Infection.
Study Start Date : October 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: POL7080, Anti-pseudomonal antibiotics
POL7080 daily co-administered with standard of care treatment
Drug: POL7080
Intravenous infusion

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To measure the plasma concentrations of POL7080 [ Time Frame: Day 3 and Day 6 ]
    PK profile of POL7080 will be determined on Day 3 and Day 6.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Daily assessment up to 34 days from informed consent. ]
    Number of adverse events reported by the patients or observed by the investigator will be recorded. Onset, end date, severity, causal relationship, outcome and measures taken will be summarized. Death, discontinuations and serious adverse events will be listed and narrative summaries will be provided.

  2. Laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: Day 4, Day 6, Day 10, Day 15, Day 24 and Day 34 ]
    The number and severity of blood chemistry and hematology abnormal findings will be summarized descriptively and compared to baseline. Clinically significant values/outliers will be listed and commented.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Clinical cure [ Time Frame: Day 4, Day 6, Day 10, Day 15, Day 24 and Day 34 ]
    Clinical cure will be measured based on clinical signs and symptoms and radiological findings.

  2. Reduction in bacterial count [ Time Frame: Day 4, Day 6, Day 10, Day 15, Day 24 and Day 34 ]
    Reduction in CFU/mL (colony forming unit /mL) of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the daily quantitative cultures.

  2. Known or suspected pulmonary conditions which are likely to interfere with the therapeutic response or might have additional impact on pharmacokinetics
  3. Patients with Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score >25
  4. Presence of septic shock at the time of evaluation for study entry
  5. History of lung transplant
  6. Patients with known HIV infection with CD4+ (cluster of differentiation 4) cell count < 200/mm3
  7. Concomitant morbidity of such severity that the patient is likely to die or present with serious medical conditions within 7 days of study entry
  8. Patients with impaired renal function
  9. Patients who are currently enrolled in, or have not yet completed at least 30 days since ending another investigational device or drug trial or are receiving other investigational agent
