Arikace Compared to TOBI in People with CF with Chronic Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Infections
Number of Participants Being Recruited:
Single / Multi-Center:
STUDY BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
People with CF can experience chronic lung infections by bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Finding the best way to treat the chronic lung infections is one of the primary goals of CF therapy. Arikace (liposomal amikacin for inhalation) is a sustained-release form of amikacin encapsulated inside nanoscale liposomal carriers designed to be inhaled. This Phase 3 trial will look at the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of Arikace in treating CF patients with chronic lung infection compared to a currently available antibiotic, TOBI (tobramycin) Inhalation Solution.
The trial requires 9 clinic visit times (including the Screening visit) over a period of approximately 6 months. No overnight stays at the clinic will be required.
