representative(s);

- Male or female, gestational age ≥34 weeks, and chronological age 7 to time of screening;

- Diagnosis of sepsis within 36 hours before enrolment, defined as the presence of at
least 2 clinical criteria and at least 1 laboratory criterion in the presence of or as
a result of suspected or proven bacterial infection that requires IV antibiotic
therapy;

- Patients must meet at least 2 of the following clinical criteria :Hypothermia ( OR fever (>38.5°C); Bradycardia OR tachycardia OR rhythm instability; Urine output 0.5

count ≤4,000 × 109/L OR ≥20,000 × 109/L; Immature to total neutrophil ratio >0.2;
Platelet count ≤100,000 × 109/L; C-reactive protein (CRP) >15 mg/L OR procalcitonin ≥2
ng/mL; Hyperglycaemia OR Hypoglycaemia; Metabolic acidosis.

Exclusion criteria
The factors, or reasons, that prevent a person from participating in a clinical study.
Show details

- Documented history of any hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to any ?-lactam
antibiotic or aminoglycoside;

- At study entry, has confirmed infection with a pathogen known to be resistant to the
combination of ceftaroline fosamil, ampicillin, and the optional aminoglycoside of
choice OR confirmed viral, fungal, or parasitic pathogen as the sole cause of
infection;

- Refractory septic shock within 24 hours before enrolment that does not resolve after
60 minutes of vasopressor therapy;

- Moderate or severe renal impairment defined as serum creatinine ?2 times the upper
limit of normal (× ULN) for age OR urine output hours) OR requirement for dialysis;

- Evidence of progressively fatal underlying disease, or life expectancy of ?60 days;

- Documented history of seizure;

- Requiring or currently taking antiretroviral therapy for human immunodeficiency virus
(HIV) or a child from an HIV positive mother;

- Proven or suspected central nervous system (CNS) infection (eg, meningitis, brain
abscess, subdural abscess), osteomyelitis, endocarditis, or necrotizing enterocolitis
(NEC);

- Any condition (eg, cystic fibrosis, urea cycle disorders), antepartum/peripartum
factors, or procedures that would, in the opinion of the investigator, make the
patient unsuitable for the study, place a patient at risk, or compromise the quality
of data;

- Patient's parent(s) or legally-acceptable representative(s) involvement in the
planning and/or conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff and/or staff
at the study site). Concurrent participation in another clinical study with an
investigational product (IP), previous enrolment/participation in this study, or
participation in another study of ceftaroline fosamil within 14 days before the
intended start of the first dose of study therapy.

Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Ceftaroline in Paediatrics With Late-Onset Sepsis
Open-label, Multicentre Study To Evaluate The Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, And Efficacy Of Ceftaroline In Neonates And Young Infants With Late-onset Sepsis
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ceftaroline for the treatment of Late Onset Sepsis in neonates and young infants aged 7 to <60 days

This is a multicentre, multinational, open-label, single treatment arm study of intravenous (IV) ceftaroline fosamil and ampicillin, plus an optional aminoglycoside of choice, in hospitalized neonates and young infants aged 7 to <60 days with late-onset sepsis (LOS).

Baseline assessments for study eligibility will occur within 36 hours before administration of the first dose of study therapy. Study Day 1 is defined as the 24-hour period starting at the onset of the first administration of study therapy. Thereafter, subsequent Study Days are to follow the same pattern.

Safety assessments will occur throughout the study. Clinical outcome evaluations will occur at End-of-Therapy (EOT; within 24 hours after completion of last infusion) and Test-of-Cure (TOC; 8 to 15 days after the last dose of study therapy).
