Infections For Which Microbiologic Surrogate EndpointsAre Useful for Clinical Trials

  • Group A streptococcus pharyngitis

  • Uncomplicated lower urinary tract infection

  • Shigella gastroenteritis


Infections For Which Microbiologic Surrogate EndpointsAre Useful for Clinical Trials

  • Group A Streptococcus Pharyngitis

    -symptoms will resolve regardless of therapy; time to resolution can be compared

    -suppurative and non-suppurative complications occur too infrequently to use as endpoints


Infections For Which Microbiologic Surrogate EndpointsAre Not Useful or Unproven for Clinical Trials

  • Skin and skin structure infections

  • Pneumonia

  • Acute hematogenous osteomyelitis or septic arthritis

  • Intra-abdominal infections

  • Viral meningitis or encephalitis


Infections For Which Microbiologic Surrogate EndpointsAre Not Useful or Unproven for Clinical Trials

  • Sites of infection are difficult to resample in order to document microbiologic eradication

  • Lack of eradication of the organism may not equal clinical failure-VAP and tracheal aspirates

  • Eradication of organism may not equal substantial clinical benefit-URI and pleconaril


Infections For Which Microbiologic Surrogate EndpointsMay be Useful for Clinical Trials

  • Bacterial meningitis

  • Acute otitis media and sinusitis

  • VP shunt infections

  • Coagulase-negative staphylococcus line-associated bacteremia

  • Pertussis

Outcomes

  • Are there data to show bacteriologic outcome is a good surrogate for clinical outcome?

  • Would bacterial endpoint alone miss the potential differential effect of drugs on inflammatory response?

  • How should clinical success/failure be defined and what should constitute the primary efficacy population?

    • ITT or evaluable?

  • How best can preclinical and early phase clinical trial data be used in meningitis trials to help address some of these issues?

Imo Ibia 2002 FDA/IDSA/PhRMA Workshop 2002


Evaluations

  • Timing of repeat lumbar puncture

    • Is there data to establish the best time?

    • What factors could impact that time and how should they be factored in?

      • organism, baseline quantity, drug, host factors

  • How many organisms in repeat LP constitute delayed sterilization and what is its utility in trials?

    • Few and patient improving, optional (IDSA 1992)

  • Quantification of baseline CSF pathogens

    • How feasible and consistent across multinational sites?

  • Imo Ibia 2002 FDA/IDSA/PhRMA Workshop 2002


    Outcome of Bacterial meningitis

    • IDSA Guidelines 1992: Endpoints of

      -cure

      -survival with mild neurologic sequelae

      -survival with severe neurologic sequelae (somewhat

      dependent on the observer and some sequelae

      improve with time)

      -death

    • Mortality is low in US

    • Audiology testing is an objective and quantifiable measure

    • As with other sequelae, hearing loss may improve over time


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    • Prospective, randomized multicenter study

    • Ceftriaxone (n=53) or cefuroxime (n=53)

    • Repeat CSF culture at 18-36 hours

    • No significant differences in clinical characteristics between the groups at enrollment

      Schaad et al N Engl J Med 1990;332:141-7


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    Schaad et al N Engl J Med 1990;332:141-7


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    • Hearing loss for H. influenzae type b

      Ceftriaxone-2/27 (7%); Cefuroxime-6/35 (17%)

    • 2 of 6 children who had hearing loss after cefuroxime therapy for Hib had delayed sterilization of the CSF i.e. 4 did not have delayed sterilization of CSF

    Schaad et al N Engl J Med 1990;332:141-7


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    • Hearing loss for S. pneumoniae

      Ceftriaxone-0/7; Cefuroxime-2/6

      None with hearing loss due to S. pneumoniae had delayed CSF sterilization

    Schaad et al N Engl J Med 1990;332:141-7


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    Sensitivity-90/99=91% Specificity-2/7=29%


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    • Four prospective studies conducted in Dallas-last 3 were dexamethasone trials. None of the studies were direct comparisons

    • Ceftriaxone-174; Cefuroxime-159

    • No significant differences between the groups at initiation of therapy

    Lebel et al J Pediatr 1989;114:1049-54


    Ceftriaxone vs Cefuroxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children

    Lebel et al J Pediatr 1989;114:1049-54


    Meropenem vs Cefotaxime for Bacterial Meningitis in Children


    Trovafloxacin vs Ceftriaxone for Bacterial Meningitis in Children


    Conclusions

    • Not clear how well repeat CSF culture at 24-36 hours after initiation of treatment predicts hearing impairment or

      overall outcome (vast majority of patients with severe sequelae have sterile 2nd CSF)

      ● Not clear if findings for Hib meningitis are applicable to pneumococcal or meningococcal meningitis
