Beta Blocker for Chronic Wound Healing
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of treatment of chronic cutaneous ulcers and burn wounds with topical beta adrenergic antagonists (Timoptic®).
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how to heal venous leg ulcers faster and to test the safety of a drug and see what effects it has on a venous leg ulcer.
- be interviewed and examined
- have a physical exam
- have blood and urine tested
- have photographs taken of the wound
- apply medication to the leg ulcer as directed

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A PEPTIC ULCER located in the DUODENUM.
Ulceration of the skin and underlying structures of the lower extremity. About 90% of the cases are due to venous insufficiency (VARICOSE ULCER), 5% to arterial disease, and the remaining 5% to other causes.
Bleeding from a PEPTIC ULCER that can be located in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
Penetration of a PEPTIC ULCER through the wall of DUODENUM or STOMACH allowing the leakage of luminal contents into the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
Various agents with different action mechanisms used to treat or ameliorate PEPTIC ULCER or irritation of the gastrointestinal tract. This has included ANTIBIOTICS to treat HELICOBACTER INFECTIONS; HISTAMINE H2 ANTAGONISTS to reduce GASTRIC ACID secretion; and ANTACIDS for symptomatic relief.
