The primary focus of the study is the evaluation of the safety of treatment with moxifloxacin in a pediatric population 3 months to <18 years old. Approximately 450 pediatric subjects with a complicated intra-abdominal infection will be enrolled in the study and treated with either moxifloxacin intravenously and orally if switched to oral therapy or ertapenem (intravenously) and, if switched to oral therapy, amoxicillin/clavulanate.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary objective of the trial is to evaluate the safety of treatment with moxifloxacin with a special focus on cardiac and musculoskeletal events. [ Time Frame: Treatment day 5-14 (end of treatment), day 28-42 after EOT (test-of-cure), 3 and 12 months FU ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of musculoskeletal adverse events [ Time Frame: Treatment day 5-14 (end of treatment), day 28-42 after EOT (test-of-cure), 3 and 12 months FU ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evaluation of electrocardiogram profiles obtained on Day 1 and Day 3 pre-treatment and post-treatment [ Time Frame: Treatment day 3 and 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evaluation of clinical response at the Test-of-cure visit among subjects with a bacteriologically confirmed complicated intra-abdominal infection [ Time Frame: 28-42 days after end of treatment (test-of-cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at a "during therapy" visit (Day 3-5) [ Time Frame: Treatment day 3 or 4 or 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at the End of Treatment visit [ Time Frame: Treatment day 5-14 (end of treatment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at the Test-of-cure visit [ Time Frame: 28-42 days after end of treatment (test-of-cure) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
