|Safety and Efficacy of Strategy to Prevent Drug-Induced Nephrotoxicity in High-Risk Patients
|Henry Ford Health System
|For more than fifty years, vancomycin has been cited as a nephrotoxic agent. Reports of vancomycin induced kidney injury (a.k.a vancomycin induced nephrotoxicity or VIN), have waxed and waned throughout the years for various reasons. Recently, VIN has reemerged as a clinical concern. This may be due to various reasons, including new dosing recommendations as well as an increased prevalence of risk factors associated with vancomycin induced nephrotoxicity. This study aims to evaluate a strategy which attempts to reduce kidney damage from vancomycin use.
|Study Comparing CUBICIN® (Daptomycin for Injection) With Vancomycin in Cellulitis or Erysipelas
|Cubist Pharmaceuticals LLC
|This study is designed to investigate the difference in speed and degree of symptom resolution between daptomycin and vancomycin in subjects treated for cellulitis or erysipelas by evaluation of the following parameters: - Time to erythema margin cessation to progress - Time to defervescence - Time to hospital discharge following relief of the presenting cellulitis or erysipelas - Degree of improvement of the following signs and symptom of cellulitis or erysipelas including - Degree of improvement of cellulitis-related pain and swelling as reported by subjects Additionally, the difference in frequency of Adverse Events between daptomycin and vancomycin will be described.
|Daptomycin in Treating Neutropenia and Fever in Patients With Cancer
|OHSU Knight Cancer Institute
|RATIONALE: Antibiotics, such as daptomycin, may control neutropenia, fever, and infection in patients with cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well daptomycin works in treating neutropenia and fever in patients with cancer.
|Daptomycin as an Adjuvant Agent in the Treatment of Enterococcal Native Valve Endocarditis.
|Weill Medical College of Cornell University
|The aim of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of daptomycin when used as an adjuvant agent to standard care in the treatment of proven native valve Enterococcal endocarditis. Patients with this disease will be offered the option of receiving daptomycin at a dose of 8 milligrams/kilogram/day in addition to the antibiotics they are already receiving. The hypothesis of this study is that daptomycin added to standard therapy for Enterococcal endocarditis is safe and efficacious. Patients who receive daptomycin + standard therapy will be compared to patients who receive standard therapy alone with respect to the following outcomes: 1. Safety. 1. The frequency of any Grade 3 or 4 toxicity (DAIDS scale) will be measured. 2. The frequency of muscle toxicity or renal toxicity, as determined by predefined criteria. 2. Efficacy. 1. Clinical efficacy. - Time to clearance of bacteremia - Cure at 6 weeks following completion of antibiotic therapy - Mortality at 6 weeks following completion of antibiotic therapy 2. Microbiologic efficacy. - Peak and trough serum bactericidal titers - The minimum bactericidal concentration of Enterococci to daptomycin We expect to enroll 40 patients over 2 years.
|Study of Daptomycin in Subjects Undergoing Surgery for Osteomyelitis Associated With an Infected Prosthetic Caused by Staphylococci
|Cubist Pharmaceuticals LLC
|This is a research study designed to look at the efficacy and safety of daptomycin given at a dose of 6 mg/kg or 8 mg/kg in subjects being treated for prosthetic hip or knee infections caused by Staphylococci. These types of bacteria are among the most common types of bacteria causing infections of prosthetic joints.
