Summary
Brief summary
Two Phase III trials to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of oritavancin in the treatment
of complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSI) have been completed.

The pharmacokinetic profile of oritavancin in humans suggests that oritavancin has the
potential to be used safely and effectively when given either as a single dose or as an
infrequent dose for cSSSI. Data from animals support this theory.

SIMPLIFI has been designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of either a single dose of
oritavancin or an infrequent dose of oritavancin (First dose on Day one with an option for a
second dose on Day five) compared to the previously studied dosing regimen of 200mg
oritavancin given once daily for 3 to 7 days.
