Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Teicoplanin
teicoplanin, administered orally 100-200 mg, twice a day
Pharmaceutical form:solution for oral administration Route of administration: oral

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical cure rate [ Time Frame: 2 days after 7-14 days treatment ]
    Clinical cure is defined as: Resolution of diarrhea (ROD) (≤ 3 unformed bowel movement (UBM) per day for at least 2 consecutive days) on study treatment and maintained for 2 days after End of treatment (EOT), AND No additional antimicrobial treatment active against Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD) or fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) between first dose of study drug and 2 days after EOT (inclusive)

  2. Recurrence rate [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Recurrence is defined as reappearance of diarrhea during the 8-week follow-up period.

  3. Time to resolution of diarrhea [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Resolution of diarrhea (ROD) (≤ 3 unformed bowel movement (UBM) per day for at least 2 consecutive days) on study treatment and maintained for 2 days after end of treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of nephrotoxicity [ Time Frame: Until 10 weeks ]
    Nephrotoxicity is defined as: serum creatinine increase of more than 0.5 mg/dL if the baseline serum creatinine was ≤ 3 mg/dL or a rise of > 1 mg/dL if the initial serum creatinine was > 3 mg/dL; or 50% increase from baseline; or a drop in calculated creatinine clearance using Cockroft-Gault formula of ≥ 50% from baseline.

  2. Incidence of hepatotoxicit [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Hepatotoxicity is defined as: AST or ALT 3 times upper limit of normal or if AST or ALT baseline is abnormal, AST or ALT increase of ≥ 3 times the baseline and adverse events/ reactions using the MedDRA SMQ (Standardised MedDRA Query) "Hepatic Disorders".

  3. Incidence of thrombocytopenia [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Thrombocytopenia is defined as: platelets < 100 000/mm3 or < 100 Giga/L

  4. Incidence of hearing and balance/vestibular disorders [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Hearing and balance/vestibular disorders are defined as: identified via PT terms using MedDRA SMQ for "hearing and vestibular disorders" (narrow) and additionally the PT "balance disorder".

  5. Additional renal endpoints: renal failure, dialysis and renal replacement therapy [ Time Frame: Until 10 weeks ]
  6. Any untoward adverse events/reactions [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
