The Use of CureXcellTM in a Community Setting for the Treatment of Hard to Heal Wounds

2014-08-27 03:14:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of the study is to define procedures for the use of CureXcellTM in the community through Clalit Health Services.Adults with chronic ulcers; pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, or diabetic foot ulcers will be recruited to the study. Patients that have been recruited for the study will be treated as required for their medical condition. As required, cultures will be taken, IV or PO antibiotics will be given and debridement will be carried out. Patients will be referred to catheterization, revascularization, or amputation as required and the decision to do so will not be affected in any way by the study. CureXcellTM will be used as adjunct treatment to good ulcer care (GUC).

Interleukin-2 Plus Activated White Blood Cells in Treating Patients With Cancer That Has Not Responded to Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy

RATIONALE: Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill tumor cells. Combining white blood cells, which have been activated by a vaccine, with interleukin-2 may kill mo...

Effects of Xiidra on Closed Eye Tear Film Leukocytes in Dry Eye Disease

Every night during sleep, there is an accumulation of white blood cells in the closed eye. The closed eye white blood cells are predominantly neutrophils, but there is a small population (...

Cytokine Induced Killer Cells as Post-Transplant Immunotherapy Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

The purpose of the study is to determine if the use of activated T cells can effectively treat relapsed disease following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation without causing GVHD...

Bispecific Antibody Plus White Blood Cells in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Glioblastoma Multiforme

RATIONALE: Bispecific antibodies plus white blood cells may be able to locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. ...

Phase I Study To Test The Safety of TVAX Immunotherapy As A Treatment For Recurrent Grade III/IV Gliomas

TVAX Immunotherapy is an experimental treatment that takes advantage of the fact that your body can produce immune cells, called 'killer' white blood cells that have the ability to kill la...

Vasculogenically conditioned peripheral blood mononuclear cells inhibit mouse immune response to induced pluripotent stem cell-derived allogeneic cardiac grafts.

Allogeneic transplantation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cardiomyocytes is apromising treatment for cardiac diseases, although immune rejection by the recipient poses a concern. In t...

Label-free rapid identification of tumor cells and blood cells with silver film SERS substrate.

The detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from peripheral blood is considered as great significance for the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer patients. Raman spectroscopy is a highly sensitive o...

Syngeneic, in contrast to allogeneic, mesenchymal stem cells have superior therapeutic potential following spinal cord injury.

We evaluated the importance of histocompatibility of transplanted MSCs in terms of therapeutic potential. Mouse syngeneic MSCs or allogeneic MSCs were transplanted following SCI in mouse. In this stud...

Suppressive Characteristics of Umbilical Cord Blood-derived Regulatory T Cells After Ex Vivo Expansion on Autologous and Allogeneic T Effectors and Various Lymphoblastic Cells.

The third-party umbilical cord blood (UCB)-derived regulatory T cells (Treg) are an alternative to donor-derived Treg as cellular therapy of graft-versus-host disease following hematopoietic stem cell...

Cutoff Value for Correcting White Blood Cell Count for Nucleated Red Blood Cells: What is it? Why is it Important?

Nucleated red blood cells (RBCs) are normally observed in the peripheral blood of neonates and during pregnancy. Under other conditions, the presence of nucleated RBCs in circulating blood indicates d...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The number of WHITE BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in venous BLOOD. A differential leukocyte count measures the relative numbers of the different types of white cells.

The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.

The treatment of patients without the use of allogeneic BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS or blood products.

The deformation and flow behavior of BLOOD and its elements i.e., PLASMA; ERYTHROCYTES; WHITE BLOOD CELLS; and BLOOD PLATELETS.

The process of generating white blood cells (LEUKOCYTES) from the pluripotent HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS of the BONE MARROW. There are two significant pathways to generate various types of leukocytes: MYELOPOIESIS, in which leukocytes in the blood are derived from MYELOID STEM CELLS, and LYMPHOPOIESIS, in which leukocytes of the lymphatic system (LYMPHOCYTES) are generated from lymphoid stem cells.
