Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE The Study Of Azithromycin Switch Therapy For Treatment Of Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP)
Official Title  ICMJE A Multicenter, Non-Randomized, Open Label Study Of Azithromycin Intravenous Followed By Oral Administration In Japanese Adult Subjects With Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) Requiring Initial Intravenous Therapy
Brief SummaryAzithromycin has high rates of clinical response and eradication, wide spectrum of activity, so we suppose the development of the azithromycin injectable formulation in Japan would deliver benefit to patients of community acquired pneumonia.
