SCAMP Enrollment is Wrapping Up

Two years ago, the study site at the University of Florida–Jacksonville Shands Medical Centerwe enrolled SCAMP’s first patient. With remarkable effort from more than 50 study sites, including 5 in Canada, SCAMP will close enrollment by the end of 2016. Once the enrollment period ends, the study team will analyze the data and submit the clinical study report.

SCAMP enrolls its first patient

SCAMP—a randomized, multicenter, open-label Safety study of Clindamycin, Ampicillin, Metronidazole, and Piperacillin-tazobactam in infants with complicated intra-abdominal infections—enrolled its first patient over the weekend. The research team at the University of Florida–Jacksonville Shands Medical Center did the honors, led by site principal investigator Mark Hudak and study coordinator Renee Prince.

SCAMP is seeking to determine the safety and efficacy of antibiotics routinely used in infants with these life-threatening infections. Approximately 350 infants will be enrolled at approximately 50 sites. Total length of study participation is 100 days, including 10 days of treatment and up to 90 days of follow-up assessments.

SCAMP is taking off. A randomized, multicenter, open-label safety study of clindamycin, ampicillin, metronidazole, and piperacillin-tazobactam in infants with complicated intra-abdominal infections, SCAMP held its first investigator meeting on 2/28/2014. Twenty-five sites have been selected to date, with an additional 25 sites in the U.S. still to be recruited.
