The primary objective of this pivotal study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of PAR-101/OPT-80 versus vancomycin in subjects with Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD). The cure rates at end of therapy and recurrence rates will be evaluated and compared.
Cure Rate at End of Therapy [ Time Frame: Study day 10 (+/- 2 days) ]
Percentage of subjects with 3 or fewer unformed stools for 2 consecutive days and maintained through the end of therapy, and the subject no longer needed specific anti-Clostridium antibacterial treatment after completion of the course of study medication.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Recurrence [ Time Frame: Study days 11-40 ]
Percentage of subjects with the re-establishment of diarrhea to an extent(based on frequency of passed unformed stools) that was greater than that noted on the last day of study medication, and the demonstration of either toxin A or B or both of C. difficile, and retreatment with CDI anti-infective therapy was needed.
Global Cure [ Time Frame: End of Study ]
Achieving a cure response at end of treatment and not having a recurrence at any time up to the post-study visit.
