The study is a randomized double-blind controlled clinical trial designed to compare the ability of NaOCl to NSS in the reduction of bacterial burden in nonhealing acute and chronic wounds.
The study is a randomized double-blind controlled clinical trial designed to compare the ability of NaOCl to NSS in the reduction of bacterial burden in nonhealing acute and chronic wounds. Using the generally accepted surrogate endpoint of surface area reduction at 4 weeks, the study will also compare the healing of subjects utilizing NaOCl vs. NSS.
After consenting, the ulcers of eligible subjects are measured, photographed and undergo the MolecuLight imaging procedure (MiX). The subject is then randomized to one of two arms: target ulcer cleansed with NaOCl or NSS. After cleansing the wound a second MiX is performed. The subject is given a four-week supply of either NaOCl or NSS.

Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Penetrating wounds caused by a pointed object.
Wounds caused by objects penetrating the skin.
A dinoflagellate with a life cycle that includes numerous flagellated, amoeboid, and encysted stages. Both the flagellated and amoeboid forms produce toxins which cause open wounds on fish. Pfiesteria piscicida feeds on tissue sloughed from these wounds, as well as on bacteria and algae. It is found in Atlantic estuaries of the United States.
