The purpose of this study is to determine whether ceftaroline is effective and safe for the treatment of patients with Community-acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP) at risk for infection due to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Clinical Details

Official title: A Multicenter, Multinational, Randomized, Double-blind Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Ceftaroline Fosamil Versus Ceftriaxone Plus Vancomycin in Adult Subjects With Community-acquired Bacterial Pneumonia at Risk for Infection Due to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Evaluate the efficacy of ceftaroline and azithromycin versus ceftriaxone and azithromycin plus vancomycin in adult subjects with community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) at risk for infection due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

Evaluate the safety of ceftaroline and azithromycin versus ceftriaxone and azithromycin plus vancomycin in adult subjects with CABP at risk for infection due to MRSA

Detailed description: A Muticenter, Multinational, Randomized, Double-blind Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and safety of Ceftaroline fosamil Versus Ceftriaxone Plus Vancomyicn in Adult Subjects with Community-acquired Bacterial Pneumonia at Risk for Infection Due to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
