Genzyme, a Sanofi Company
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00106509
First received: March 25, 2005
Last updated: July 29, 2009
Last verified: April 2007
  Purpose

Approximately 520 patients will be entered into this study taking place throughout the US and Canada. This study aims to determine if an investigational drug is safe and effective for treating symptoms of C. difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD) and lowering the risk of repeat episodes of CDAD. The investigational drug will be evaluated in comparison to current standard antibiotic treatment, so all patients will receive active medication. All study related care is provided including doctor visits, physical exams, laboratory tests and study medication. Total length of participation is approximately 6 weeks.
