Efficacy Evaluation and Safety of Single-dose IV Oritavancin vs. IV Vancomycin for the Treatment of Patients with Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infection (SOLO I)

Investigator: Henry Chambers, MD
Sponsor: PPD Inc.

Location(s): United States


The purpose of this Phase 3 trial is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of oritavancin in ABSSSIs, including those caused by MRSA and to evaluate the potential economic benefit of oritavancin administered as a single 1200 mg IV dose.

This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel, comparative efficacy and safety study of single-dose IV oritavancin/IV placebo versus IV vancomycin for 7 to 10 days in adults with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infection (ABSSSI) suspected or proven to be caused by Gram-positive pathogens. Approximately 960 patients will be randomized at 100 centers globally.

In addition, this study will characterize the PK and PK/PD properties of a single 1200 mg IV dose of oritavancin and evaluate the potential health economic benefits offered by this dosing strategy.
