Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of ertapenem in the blood over time between hemodialysis session.

Clinical Details

Official title: Pharmacokinetics and Investigation of Optimal Dose of Invanz (Ertapenem) in Hemodialysis Patients

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome:

Mean maximum concentration (Cmax) of ertapenem in hemodialysis patients

Mean minimum concentration (Cmin) of ertapenem in hemodialysis patients

Mean area under the curve (AUC) of ertapenem in hemodialysis patients

Mean terminal elimination rate constant (ke) of ertapenem in hemodialysis patients

Mean terminal half life (t1/2) of ertpenem in hemodialysis patients

Mean time to Cmax of ertapenem in hemodialysis patients

Secondary outcome:

Number of participants with diarrhea

Number of participants with nausea and vomiting

Number of participants with headache

Number of participants with injection site reaction

Detailed description: After a hemodialysis session, subject will be administered ertapenem and the amount of ertapenem in the blood will be measured at seven time periods before the initiation of the next hemodialysis session.
