uSSSI Study Design
The uSSSI study is a Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, open-label, comparative study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RX-1741 versus linezolid in the outpatient treatment of adult patients with Uncomplicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections (uSSSI). The study will assess the efficacy of a single dose of RX-1741 given either once daily or twice daily compared to linezolid given twice daily for five to ten days in the treatment of ambulatory patients with uSSSI. It will also evaluate the safety and tolerability profile of these two doses compared to linezolid.
The uSSSI study will enroll approximately 150 patients in 25 study centers across the US and the Company expects an interim analysis of the data to be performed when approximately 75 patients (50% of the planned patients) have completed the study. The Company intends to release data from all patients during the first half of 2008.
