Condition(s) targeted: Chronic Kidney Disease; Bacterial Infection

Intervention: Daptomycin (Drug)

Phase: N/A

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: University of Oklahoma

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Teresa V Lewis, Pharm.D., Principal Investigator, Affiliation: University of Oklahoma
Martin A Turman, M.D., Ph.D., Principal Investigator, Affiliation: University of Oklahoma


The purpose of this study is to: 1. Study the pharmacokinetics and safety of daptomycin in children on hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). 2. Determine urine, HD and PD clearance of daptomycin.

Clinical Details

Official title: Study of the Pharmacokinetics of Daptomycin in Children With Renal Disease

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome: To evaluate the pharmacokinetic profiles of a single 5 mg/kg dose of daptomycin IV in children who are on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis

Secondary outcome: To determine urine, HD and PD clearance of daptomycin

Detailed description: Infectious and sepsis events are one of the most common complications in children with chronic kidney disease. The incidence is highest in children with an access for dialysis, especially in those with catheters. Staphylococcal species account for more than 50% of access infections (ranging from 58-77%). Failure to clear the infection results in loss of dialysis access. Daptomycin is a new antibiotic that provides coverage against most gram positive bacteria including methicillin-resistant staphylococci, vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus, and vancomycin-resistant enterococci. The pharmacokinetics of daptomycin in children on dialysis, a group of patients who may need the medication the most, remains unknown. Children on HD or PD with suspected or confirmed infections due to gram-positive bacteria and who are concurrently treated with standard of care antibiotics will be considered for this study. Each patient will be given a onetime dose of Cubicin (daptomycin). After receiving daptomycin, serial blood samples along with dialysis effluent and urine (obtained from non-anuric patients) will be collected to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of the drug.


Minimum age: 12 Years. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Children who are between 12-17 years of age who are either on HD or PD and whom the

Pediatric Nephrology Section of the OU Children's Physicians Clinics provide care.

- In addition to children on chronic HD and PD therapy, patients newly initiated on HD

and PD will also be recruited for this study.

- Patients with suspected or confirmed cases of dialysis related infection from

gram-positive bacteria and who are receiving standard of care antibiotics.

- Patients will be eligible for enrollment if they were admitted as an inpatient to the

Children's hospital or as an outpatient to the dialysis clinic Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients > 17 years of age

- Patients < 12 years of age

- Total amount of blood drawn as part of standard of care and for pharmacokinetic

analysis exceeds 3 ml/kg over an 8 week period

- Taking an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor within 7 days of daptomycin administration

- Having used daptomycin in the 30 days preceding study entry

- Participating in any experimental procedure in the 30 days preceding study

- A history of muscular disease or neurological disease

- Baseline creatine phosphokinase (CPK) values equal to or greater than 1. 5 times the

upper limit of normal (normal range 65-370 IU/L)

- Hemoglobin < 9 g/dl

- Hemodynamic instability within 72 hours before study enrollment

- Female subjects with a positive pregnancy test or failure to take a pregnancy test
