PK and Safety Evaluation of Daptomycin in Children Ages 2-6 With Proven or Suspected Gram-positive Infections
An Evaluation of the Pharmacokinetic Profile and Safety of a Single Dose of Daptomycin in Pediatric Subjects Aged Two to Six Years Who Are Concurrently Receiving Standard Antibiotic Therapy for Proven or Suspected Gram-positive Infection
This is a research study designed to look at the pharmacokinetics (distribution, breakdown, and removal) and tolerability of a single dose of daptomycin in patients aged 2 to 6 years who have infections that are caused by a specific group of bacteria (called Gram-positive bacteria).

  • Male or female between the ages of 2 and 6 years old, inclusive;
  • Able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study;
  • Clinically stable with no evidence of hemodynamic instability (defined as a requirement for pharmacological intervention to manage blood pressure) in the 72 hour window prior to enrollment, and no history or evidence of renal or hepatic compromise;
  • Suspected or diagnosed Gram-positive infection for which the subject is receiving standard antibiotic therapy;
  • A calculated creatinine clearance rate (CLcr) ≥ 80 ml/min/1.73m2 as determined by the Schwartz equation at baseline;
  • Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels less than 2X ULN (upper limit of normal) at baseline.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Investigational drug use (including daptomycin) or participation in any experimental procedure in the 30 days preceding study entry;
  • Known allergy/ hypersensitivity to daptomycin;
  • History of clinically significant cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, pulmonary (well-controlled asthma is acceptable), gastrointestinal, endocrine, hematologic, autoimmune disease or primary immune deficiency;
  • Pneumonia as sole Gram-positive infection being treated with standard antibiotics;
  • Subjects with clinically significant abnormal laboratory test results [including electrocardiograms (ECGs)], as determined by Investigator;
  • Administration of rifampin within 7 days of study drug administration;
  • Body mass index (BMI) that is outside of the 5th to 95th percentile;
  • Subjects in whom collection of the required blood volume would put them at risk of hemodynamic disturbance (at the discretion of Investigator);
  • History of or current clinically significant (at the discretion of the Investigator) muscular disease, nervous system or seizure disorder;
  • Administration of intramuscular injection between baseline and study drug administration or expected intramuscular injection within 24 hours following dosing;
