Clinical research study to test amoxicillin and clavulanate tablet formulation for use in
Acute Bacterial Sinusitis (ABS) in adolescent patients weighing at least 40 kilogram (kg) and
no more than 16 years old. ABS is an acute bacterial infection of the sinus. The purpose of
this study is to find out how children tolerate Augmentin XR and what happens to Augmentin
XR in the body after it has been swallowed by children.
Official title: An Open-Label Study to Determine the Pharmacokinetic Profiles of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate in Adolescent Patients Weighing at Least 40 kg and no More Than 16 Years of Age Receiving Augmentin XR (Amoxicillin 2000 mg/Clavulanate 125 mg) Orally Twice Daily for 10 Days.
Study design: Treatment, Non-Randomized, Open Label, Uncontrolled, Single Group Assignment, Pharmacokinetics Study
Primary outcome: Pharmacokinetic data on amoxicillin/clavulanate
Secondary outcome: Safety, tolerability, and clinical response of oral amoxicillin/clavulanate
