OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of Seasonale, 91-day extended cycle oral contraceptive (OC). METHODS A parallel, randomized, multicenter open-label, 1-year study of the OC Seasonale [30 microg ethinyl estradiol (EE)/150 microg levonorgestrel (LNG), and Nordette-28 (30 microg EE/150 microg LNG)] in sexually active, adult women (18-40 years) of(More)
During two clinical trials involving the treatment of 835 outpatients with infected diabetic foot ulcers, 2515 bacterial isolates, including 2337 aerobes and 178 anaerobes, were grown from cultures of the ulcers. The in vitro susceptibility of these isolates was determined to pexiganan, a peptide anti-infective evaluated in these clinical trials, and to(More)
BACKGROUND A cross-study analysis of contraceptive clinical trials for two different 91-day oral contraceptive (OC) regimens was performed to examine the impact on bleeding patterns when supplementing the 7-day hormone-free interval with 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol (EE) daily. STUDY DESIGN Two separate 1-year Phase 3 clinical programs were conducted using(More)
A randomized, investigator-blind, multicenter phase 2 trial involving patients with complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSI) compared the safety and efficacy of omadacycline, a broad-spectrum agent with activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), to those of linezolid (with or without aztreonam). Patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate low-dose synthetic conjugated estrogens A (SCE-A) cream administered twice weekly for the treatment of moderate to severe vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) in a symptomatic postmenopausal population. METHODS In a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, 305 women with symptoms of VVA were(More)
BACKGROUND Oral contraceptives (OCs) are the most widely used method of reversible contraception. Recent alterations of the standard 28-day regimen have included shortening the traditional hormone-free interval (HFI), supplementing the HFI with low-dose estrogen, or increasing the number of active pills administered, thus extending the time between(More)
Adenovirus (ADV) types 4 (ADV-4) and 7 (ADV-7) are presently the major cause of febrile acute respiratory disease (ARD) in U.S. military recruits. We conducted a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 study of the new vaccine to assess its safety and efficacy. Healthy adults at two basic training sites were randomly assigned to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of synthetic conjugated estrogens B (SCE-B; 0.3 mg/d) for 12 weeks in the treatment of vulvovaginal atrophy in symptomatic, postmenopausal women. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. SETTING Forty-two participating sites in the United States. PATIENT(S)(More)
BACKGROUND Uremic pruritus is a common and deleterious condition among hemodialysis (HD) patients. Central gating of μ/κ opiate circuitry plays an important role in mediating and countering pruritogenic sensation. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of the mixed μ-antagonist/κ-agonist nalbuphine, administered(More)
