Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Patients were recruited from an outpatient dialysis center. Eligible patients were referred to study investigators by social workers or nurses.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
All study patients were assigned to receive study drug to explore the pharmacokinetic profile of ertapenem during CAPD. Once enrolled, patients were excluded if they developed infection.

Reporting Groups
Ertapenem 500 mg IV x1 All patients will receive ertapenem 500 mg IV once.

Participant Flow:   Overall Study
    Ertapenem 500 mg IV x1
