Study of dalbavancin for Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteremia


This is a Phase 2b clinical study, multicenter, randomized, open-label, assessor-blinded, superiority study. The study will compare dalbavancin to standard of care antibiotic therapy for the completion of therapy in patients with complicated bacteremia or right-sided native valve Infective Endocarditis (IE) caused by S. aureus who have cleared their baseline bacteremia. Approximately 200 subjects will be randomized 1:1 to receive either dalbavancin or a standard of care antibiotic regimen that is based upon the identification and antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the baseline organism. Subjects randomized to the dalbavancin treatment group will receive 2 doses of dalbavancin intravenously (IV) 1 week apart (1500 mg on Day 1 and Day 8 after randomization, with renal dose adjustment if appropriate).

Subjects randomized to the standard of care antibiotic therapy treatment group will receive an antibiotic regimen considered to be standard of care based on the methicillin susceptibility pattern of the pathogen isolated at baseline for a duration of 4 to 6 weeks and up to 8 weeks for patients with vertebral osteomyelitis/discitis. The primary objective is to compare the Desirability of Outcome Ranking (DOOR) at Day 70 of dalbavancin to that of standard of care antibiotic therapy used to consolidate therapy for the treatment of subjects with complicated S. aureus bacteremia in the intent-to-treat population (ITT).

The trial is designed to enroll male and female 18 Years to 99 Years. The study start date is April 22, 2021.
