The Pharmacokinetics of Extended Duration High-dose Cefixime for the Decreased Susceptibility of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae: A Phase I Pilot Study
This study is a Phase I, open label, non-randomized, dose-frequency escalation pharmacokinetics study among 30 healthy male and female subjects, aged 18 to 45 years to determine the pharmacokinetics and safety of high-, multi-dose cefixime for the treatment of [more...]  reduced susceptibility gonorrhea. Stage 1(Cohorts A and B) will examine the pharmacokinetics of single 400mg and 800mg dose of cefixime. Stage 2(Cohorts C and D) subjects will take 800mg of cefixime every 12 hours for 2 doses. If that dosing regimen is well tolerated, the dose-frequency will escalate to 800mg every 8 hours for 3 doses, and serum levels of cefixime will be measured. Stage 3(Cohort E) will evaluate the highest tolerated dose of cefixime co-administered with a single oral dose of azithromycin 1 gram orally once in order to determine the tolerability of the regimen and whether there are significant changes in cefixime pharmacokinetics when the drugs are administered together. Study duration is approximately 49 weeks.

A Pilot Study of the Addition of Bevacizumab to VOIT Regimen for Relapsed/Refractory Pediatric Solid Tumors
The purpose of this research study is to test the safety and of adding bevacizumab to the established regimen of vincristine, oral irinotecan, and temozolomide (VOIT) and see what effects it has in pediatric patients with relapsed or refractory solid tumors.
Status: Completed Start Date: October 2008 Completion Date: November 2012
N2003-01: Irinotecan, Temozolomide, and Cefixime in Treating Young Patients With Recurrent or Resistant Neuroblastoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan and temozolomide, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Temozolomide may help irinotecan kill more tumor cells by making them more sensitive to the drug. [more...]  Cefixime may be effective in preventing diarrhea that is caused by treatment with irinotecan. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of irinotecan when given together with temozolomide and cefixime in treating young patients with recurrent or resistant neuroblastoma.
Status: Completed Start Date: May 2004 Completion Date: 
VNP20009 in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors That Have Not Responded to Previous Therapy
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as VNP20009 use different ways to stimulate the immune system and stop cancer cells from growing. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of VNP20009 in treating patients who have advanced or metastatic solid [more...]  tumors that have not responded to previous therapy.
Status: Completed Start Date: August 1999 Completion Date: January 2008
Empiric Therapy of Mucopurulent Cervicitis (MPC)
Mucopurulent cervicitis (MPC) is a syndrome with associated symptoms including mucopurulent discharge (mucus and pus) from the cervix and other signs of inflammation such as easily induced cervical bleeding. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of no [more...]  treatment versus empiric treatment with a single dose of cefixime and azithromycin for cure of MPC. Empiric treatment is the initiation of treatment prior to a firm diagnosis. Study participants will include 772 women ages 18 and older in good health with MPC. Women will be randomly assigned to 1 of 2 possible study groups: Group 1 will receive a single dose of cefixime and azithromycin antibiotics and Group 2 will receive placebo (inactive substance). Study procedures will include pelvic examination with a cervical swab sample. Participants will be involved in study related procedures for approximately 2 months, which includes 3 study visits.
Status: Terminated Start Date: March 2010 Completion Date: December 2011

 

Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Participants often receive the best healthcare available for their condition.

Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. Trials are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect participants.

cefixime Clinical Trials Information presented on ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is not intended to be a substitute for qualified medical advice visit or treatment with a real physician. We are not physicians. Always consult with a medical doctor (MD). ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is a website dedicated to listing clinical research studies in human subjects, including those specifically related to cefixime. Clinical research trials and medical trials take place in hundreds of cities across the United States. A clinical trial or clinical study is a research project with human volunteer subjects. Clinical drug trials and pharmaceutical clinical trials generally measure the effectiveness of new treatments and drugs. The purpose of the studies is to answer specific human health questions. Clinical trials are a popular way for doctors, government agencies, and private sector companies to find treatments for all kinds of conditions. Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Many times the participants receive treatment for free, and sometimes they are paid for their time. Participants often receive the best healthcare available possible for their condition. Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. U.S. - based cefixime studies are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect patients.
