Brief Title  ICMJE A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Double-Dummy Trial of Azithromycin SR Compared With Clarithromycin Extended Release for the Treatment of Pneumonia in Adult Patients
Official Title  ICMJE A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Double-Dummy Comparative Trial of Azithromycin SR Versus Clarithromycin Extended Release for the Treatment of Mild to Moderate Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Adults
Brief Summary The study was performed to confirm that a single, 2.0 g oral dose of azithromycin sustained release (SR) at least as effective as 7 days of clarithromycin extended release (ER), 1.0 g by mouth once daily, when used to treat adults with mild to moderate community acquired pneumonia (CAP), and that both treatments were safe.
