The primary focus of the study is the evaluation of the safety of treatment with moxifloxacin in a pediatric population 3 months to <18 years old. Approximately 450 pediatric subjects with a complicated intra-abdominal infection will be enrolled in the study and treated with either moxifloxacin intravenously and orally if switched to oral therapy or ertapenem (intravenously) and, if switched to oral therapy, amoxicillin/clavulanate.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Multicenter Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Sequential (Intravenous, Oral) Moxifloxacin Versus Comparator in Pediatric Subjects With Complicated Intra-abdominal Infection

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Primary objective of the trial is to evaluate the safety of treatment with moxifloxacin with a special focus on cardiac and musculoskeletal events.

Secondary outcome:

Evaluation of musculoskeletal adverse events

Evaluation of electrocardiogram profiles obtained on Day 1 and Day 3 pre-treatment and post-treatment

Evaluation of clinical response at the Test-of-cure visit among subjects with a bacteriologically confirmed complicated intra-abdominal infection

Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at a "during therapy" visit (Day 3-5)

Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at the End of Treatment visit

Evaluation of clinical and bacteriological response to treatment at the Test-of-cure visit


Minimum age: 3 Months. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Hospitalized males or females 3 months to 17 years of age

- Able to obtain parental or legal guardian written informed consent and assent from

subjects as applicable by local laws and regulations

- Expected duration of treatment with antibiotics is a minimum of 3 days administered

IV, for a total of 5 to 14 days administered IV or IV followed by PO

- If the subject is a female of child-bearing potential she must have a negative

pregnancy test at the screening visit or be capable of practicing an adequate method of contraception, and agree to continue the same method for 1 month following the TOC visit. Lactating subjects are not to be included.

- Subjects may be enrolled upon a surgically (laparotomy, laparoscopy, or percutaneous

drainage) confirmed cIAI revealing at least one of the following:

- Gross peritoneal inflammation with purulent exudate within the abdominal cavity

- Intra-abdominal abscess

- Macroscopic intestinal perforation with diffuse peritonitis OR

- Subjects may be enrolled on the basis of a suspected cIAI, which must be supported

with radiological evidence (ultrasound, abdominal plain films, computed tomography [CT], magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) of gastrointestinal perforation or localized collections of potentially infected material and at least one of the following:

- Symptoms referable to the abdominal cavity (eg, anorexia, nausea, vomiting or


- Tenderness (with or without rebound), involuntary guarding, absent or diminished

bowel sounds, or abdominal wall rigidity

- Fever

- Leukocytosis

- The subject must be scheduled for a surgical procedure (laparotomy or laparoscopy) or

percutaneous drainage.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Presumed spontaneous bacterial peritonitis

- All pancreatic processes including pancreatic sepsis, peripancreatic sepsis, or an

cIAI secondary to pancreatitis

- Early acute or suppurative (nonperforated) appendicitis unless there is evidence of

an abscess or peritoneal fluid containing pus and micro-organisms suggestive of regional contamination

- Infections originating from the female genital tract

- Known severe immunosuppression. Subjects with known mild immunosuppression (eg, Type

I or II diabetes mellitus, trauma, or absolute neutrophil count [ANC] between 1000 and 1500 cells/mm3) may be enrolled.

- Congenital or documented acquired QT prolongation

- Receiving concomitant treatment with QT prolonging drugs

- History of tendon disease/disorder related to quinolone treatment

- Pathogenic organisms suspected or identified (eg, Pseudomonas) which are resistant to

any of the study drugs

- Abnormal musculoskeletal findings at baseline assessment; or chronic musculoskeletal

disease (eg, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis); or chronic illness with high risk for chronic or recurrent arthritis or tendinitis (eg, cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammatory bowel disease)

- History of myasthenia gravis
