Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Serious Urinary Tract Infection With an Overall Microbiological Response to MK0826 Compared to Meropenem at the 5 to 9 Day Post Therapy Early Follow-up Visit [ Time Frame: 5 to 9 days post therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Microbiological response defined as: 1) Eradication-urine culture shows reduced uropathogen, 2)Persistence-urine culture taken after at least 2 days of therapy grows the original uropathogen, 3)Persistence with Acquisition of Resistance- urine culture taken after at least 2 days of therapy grows the original uropathogen but shows resistance to study drug, 4)Superinfection-Growth of uropathogen other than original pathogen, 5)New Infection-A new pathogen grows other than the original uropathogen, 6)Indeterminate-Any circumstance where impossible to define microbiological response.

  • Number of Participants With Serious Urinary Tract Infection With a Clinical Response to MK0826 Compared to Meropenem at Discontinuation of Intravenous Therapy (DCIV) [ Time Frame: After at least 4 days of IV therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical response at DCIV defined as: 1) Improved-All or most pretherapy signs and symptoms of infection have improved and no additional antibiotic is required, 2) Failure-No response to therapy, persistence or progression of pretherapy signs and symptoms, 3) Indeterminate-Study data not available due to complications related to underlying medical condition, patient withdrawn from study or extenuating circumstances preclude classification as improved or failure.

  • Number of Participants With Serious Urinary Tract Infection With an Overall Microbiological Response to MK0826 Compared to Meropenem at Discontinuation of Intravenous Therapy (DCIV) [ Time Frame: After at least 4 days of IV therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Microbiological response defined as: 1) Eradication-urine culture shows reduced uropathogen, 2)Persistence-urine culture taken after at least 2 days of therapy grows the original uropathogen, 3)Persistence with Acquisition of Resistance- urine culture taken after at least 2 days of therapy grows the original uropathogen but shows resistance to study drug, 4)Superinfection-Growth of uropathogen other than original pathogen, 5)New Infection-A new pathogen grows other than the original uropathogen, 6)Indeterminate-Any circumstance where impossible to define microbiological response.
