Resumen: Background Empiric treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) represents a clinical challenge because of the diverse bacteriology and the emergence of bacterial resistance. The efficacy and safety of tigecycline (TGC), a first-in-class, expanded broad-spectrum glycylcycline antibiotic, were compared with imipenem/cilastatin (IMI/CIS) in patients with cIAI. Methods In this prospective, double-blind, phase 3, multinational trial, patients were randomly assigned to intravenous (IV) TGC (100 mg initial dose, then 50 mg every 12 h) or IV IMI/CIS (500/500 mg every 6 h) for 5–14 days. Clinical response was assessed at the test-of-cure (TOC) visit (14–35 days after therapy) for microbiologically evaluable (ME) and microbiologically modified intent-to-treat (m-mITT) populations (co-primary efficacy endpoint populations in which cure/failure response rates were determined). Results Of 817 mITT patients (i.e., received ≥ 1 dose of study drug), 641 (78%) comprised the m...
