  1. AE adverse event, EOT clinical response at the end of treatment, ITT intention to treat, mITT modified intention to treat, MRSA methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, PTE clinical response at the post-treatment evaluation, TOC clinical response at the test of cure
  2. aIn the Corey 2010 study, vancomycin was given with or without aztreonam
  3. b For clinical response at EOT/PTE/TOC, Talbot 2007 was the only study of ceftaroline. Only five patients on each arm had confirmed MRSA. Hence, for this network, data were insufficient to estimate comparisons with ceftaroline (the model did not converge), and Talbot 2007 was excluded. It was included, however, in the post hoc analysis because for this network there were other studies with ceftaroline
