Positive Study Results for Ceftaroline Phase III Clinical Study for the Treatment of Complicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections Presented at ICAAC / IDSA
Date:10/27/2008

ate that ceftaroline, as monotherapy, is highly efficacious and well tolerated in treating cSSSIs. Ceftaroline demonstrated efficacy in a variety of monomicrobial and polymicrobial infections including those with challenging pathogens and drug-resistant phenotypes. The full results from this study demonstrate that ceftaroline's efficacy as monotherapy is similar to combination therapy with vancomycin and aztreonam.

"We're very pleased with the data presented which corroborate ceftaroline's potential use for the treatment of complicated skin infections, including those caused by MRSA - a common yet highly serious and growing problem faced by hospitalized patients today," Marco Taglietti, Chief Medical Officer of the Forest Research Institute, explained. "We are committed to investing in highly effective therapies, such as ceftaroline, to treat the growing number of multi-drug resistant infections. Along with this commitment, it is our intent to build a novel and robust antimicrobial franchise."

Phase III Study Design

CANVAS I, a globally conducted, multi-center, Phase III, randomized, double-blind comparative study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ceftaroline as monotherapy compared to the combination of vancomycin plus aztreonam.(1) The data were collected from 702 adult patients with cSSSIs caused by gram-positive and/or gram-negative bacteria.(1)

Highlights of additional data presented at ICAAC / IDSA include the following:

--Ceftaroline activity tested against organisms causing skin and skin structure infections (SSSIs) isolated in USA and European medical centers in 2008 (Poster C1-160)(2)

--Antimicrobial activity of ceftaroline tested against contemporary (2008) bacteria isolated from community-acquired respiratory tract infections (CARTI), including oxacillin- (methicillin-) resistant

Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (Poster C2-1974)(3)
