Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study Comparing the Safety and Efficacy of Tigecycline With Ampicillin-Sulbactam or Amoxicillin-Clavulanate to Treat Skin Infections
Official Title  ICMJE A Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label Comparison of the Safety And Efficacy of Tigecycline With That of Ampicillin-Sulbactam or Amoxicillin-Clavulanate to Treat Complicated Skin And Skin Structure Infections
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of the antibiotic tigecycline with other antibiotics, ampicillin-sulbactam, and amoxicillin-clavulanate in the treatment of a complicated skin and/or skin structure infection (cSSSI).
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 4
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Skin Diseases, Bacterial
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: Tigecycline
    Treatment A: Tigecycline every 12 hours intravenous (IV) (an initial dose of 100 mg followed by 50 mg every 12 hours)
  • Drug: ampicillin-sulbactam

    Ampicillin-sulbactam: 1.5 g (1 g ampicillin plus 0.5 g sulbactam) to 3 g (3 g ampicillin plus 1 g sulbactam) intravenous (IV) every 6 hrs or Amoxicillin-clavulanate: 1.2 g (1000 mg amoxicillin plus 200 mg clavulanate) IV every 6 to 8 hrs.

    A glycopeptide antibiotic (either vancomycin 1 g IV every 12 hrs or teicoplanin IV loading dose of 400 mg the first day followed by a maintenance dose of 200 mg daily) may be added to the aminopenicillin/betalactamase inhibitor regimen if infection with methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is suspected or confirmed within the first 72 hrs of enrollment. If culture results fail to show a resistant organism, use of the glycopeptide may be discontinued.
