Brief Summary:
This is a research study designed to look at the efficacy and safety of daptomycin given at a dose of 6 mg/kg or 8 mg/kg in subjects being treated for prosthetic hip or knee infections caused by Staphylococci. These types of bacteria are among the most common types of bacteria causing infections of prosthetic joints.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Osteomyelitis Drug: daptomycin Drug: vancomycin Drug: teicoplanin Drug: nafcillin Drug: oxacillin Drug: flucloxacillin Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 75 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Randomized Study Investigating the Safety, Efficacy and Pharmacokinetics of Daptomycin 6 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg Versus Comparator in the Treatment of Subjects Undergoing Surgical Standard of Care for Osteomyelitis Associated With an Infected Prosthetic Hip or Knee Joint Caused by Staphylococci

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Daptomycin 6 mg/kg
Daptomycin (6 mg/kg every 24 hours [q24h]) as a 30 minute intravenous (IV) infusion for 6 weeks (± one week).
Drug: daptomycin
6 mg/kg
Other Name: Cubicin
Experimental: Daptomycin 8 mg/kg
Daptomycin (8 mg/kg q24h) as a 30 minute IV infusion for 6 weeks (± one week).
Drug: daptomycin
8 mg/kg

Active Comparator: Comparator
Vancomycin was administered at 1 gram every 12 hours (q12h) as a 60-minute infusion and teicoplanin was administered 6 mg/kg q24h as a 30-minute infusion also for 6 weeks (±1 week). Semi-synthetic penicillin (nafcillin, oxacillin, or flucloxacillin) was administered according to standard of care for 6 weeks (±1 week).
Drug: vancomycin
1 gram
Other Name: Vancocin
Drug: teicoplanin
6 mg/kg; used only at UK sites
Other Name: Targocid
Drug: nafcillin
1-2 gram
Other Name: Unipen
Drug: oxacillin
1-2 gram
Other Name: Bactocill
Drug: flucloxacillin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Any Creatine Phosphokinase (CPK) Elevation > 500 Units Per Liter (U/L) [ Time Frame: From the 3rd day of therapy to 1 week post last dose (approximately week 7) ]
    Number of subjects with CPK >500 U/L between Day 3 and 7 days following the last dose of study medication (Day 7P) as measured by the central laboratory.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety - Notable Laboratory Abnormalities [ Time Frame: From the 1st day of therapy to maximum of 23 weeks post last dose (up to maximum of week 30) ]
    Summary of Notable Laboratory Abnormalities - description of the proportion of subjects within each treatment group that had clinical laboratory values outside the reference range.

  2. Overall Clinical Outcome [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 weeks post last dose (approximately week 12) ]
    The sponsor determined overall clinical outcome based on blinded review of clinical, microbiological, and radiological response of the subject including, but not limited to, clinical signs and symptoms of PJI, microbiological assessments, radiographic findings, and surgical procedures performed. Subjects were a success if both clinical and microbiological responses were success. A subject who failed to respond clinically or microbiologically was a failure. If microbiological response was non-evaluable and/or clinical evaluation at TOC was not performed, the subject was non-evaluable.

  3. Microbiological Response [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 weeks post last dose (approximately week 12) ]
    Sponsor's assessment of subject-level microbiological response at the test-of-cure visit for the modified Intent-to-Treat (mITT) population.

  4. Pharmacokinetic Parameter: Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Day 4 (steady state) ]
    The pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of daptomycin at steady state for the 6 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg dose groups. On treatment day 4, PK samples for daptomycin levels were to be obtained prior to start of daptomycin infusion (0 hr) and at 0.5 hr (end of infusion), 1-1.5 hr, 3-5 hr, 8-12 hr, and 24 hr after the start of daptomycin infusion.

  5. Pharmacokinetic Parameter: Area Under the Concentration-time Curve During a Dosing Interval at Steady State (AUCss) [ Time Frame: Day 4 (steady state) ]
    The pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of daptomycin at steady state for the 6 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg dose groups. On treatment day 4, PK samples for daptomycin levels were to be obtained prior to start of daptomycin infusion (0 hr) and at 0.5 hr (end of infusion), 1-1.5 hr, 3-5 hr, 8-12 hr, and 24 hr after the start of daptomycin infusion.
