This trial will evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of repeat dosing of UTTR1147A in patients with neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers that do not respond adequately to standard wound care. Patients across multiple sites will be assigned to one of the 4 cohorts (Cohort A, B, C and D) based on the eligibility criteria and randomized to receive subcutaneous (SC) injections of either UTTR1147A or placebo over 12 weeks, in addition to standard wound care.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)
Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
Distortion or disfigurement of the foot, or a part of the foot, acquired through disease or injury after birth.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.
