Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
NXL/104 ceftazidime
Drug: NXL104/ceftazidime
125mg/500mg TID
Active Comparator: 2
comparator 4 x daily
Drug: Imipenem/Cilastatin
4 x daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Estimate the by-patient microbiological response of NXL104/ceftazidime in the treatment of adult patients with complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI) [ Time Frame: 5 to 9 days post-therapy ]
  2. Evaluate the safety and tolerability profile [ Time Frame: Treatment plus 14 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Estimate the clinical outcome of NXL104/ceftazidime [ Time Frame: End of IV therapy, Test of Cure visit 5 to 9 days post-therapy and late follow-up visit ]
  2. Estimate the by-pathogen microbiological response [ Time Frame: End of IV therapy, the Test of Cure visit 5 to 9 days post-therapy and at the late follow-up visit ]
