This is a randomized, active-controlled, open-label study to assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of Afabicin in the treatment of participants with bone or joint infection due to Staphylococcus aureus [both methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA)] and/or coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and to compare it to standard of care (SOC).

Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The problem of interest is that doctors are looking for new antibiotic treatments for bone and joint infections. Treatment for bone and joint infection is not standardized, which allows a wide range of antibiotic therapy to potentially be given. A type of bacteria called S. aureus is the most common cause of bone and joint infection. Methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is a type of bacteria that is not killed by some antibiotics, and it is increasingly common in U.S. and non-U.S. medical centers. This problem will be studied by investigating whether an antibiotic called tedizolid is tolerable, safe and effective to treat bone and joint infections.
Our lead scientists for Bone and Joint Infection research studies include Loren G Miller, MD MPH.
