Clinical Trials [5248 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Indocyanine Green (ICG) and SPY Imaging for Assessment of Burn Healing

Hypothesis: Higher levels of perfusion on indocyanine green (ICG) fluoroscopy indicate higher likelihood of burns healing whole lower levels of perfusion correlate with lower likelihood of...

Safety and Efficacy Study of FS 4 IU VH S/D (Fibrin Sealant With 4IU/mL Thrombin, Vapor Heated, Solvent/Detergent Treated) to Adhere Split Thickness Skin Grafts and Improve Wound Healing in Burn Patients

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate skin graft adherence and wound healing in burn patients to evaluate whether FS 4IU VH S/D is equivalent or superior to the current standa...

Quantification and Derivation of Metabolic Needs in Children During Burn Rehabilitation

The investigators are collecting information on the calorie needs of patients in the first year postburn. The investigators hypothesize that increased energy needs continue for up to a ye...

Topical Collagen Powder for Healing of Acute Full-thickness Wounds

We have designed a pilot study to investigate the effect and potential utility of topical NuvagenTM (collagen powder) on the rate and quality of wound healing in healthy volunteers using t...

Wound Healing in Healthy Volunteers

The skin plays a critical role in protection where it acts as a barrier from damage and pathogens between the external and internal environments. Wounds compromise its protective role by d...

PubMed Articles [6700 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Probiotic supplements containing Lactobacillus reuteri does not affect the levels of matrix metalloproteinases and interferons in oral wound healing.

The use of beneficial bacteria may stimulate wound healing. We performed a randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind cross-over study comprising ten healthy volunteers. The aim was to investigate th...

Exceptional Risk: Healthy Volunteers' Perceptions of HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials.

As with all early-stage testing of investigational drugs, clinical trials targeting HIV/AIDS can pose unknown risks to research subjects. Unlike sick participants seeking a therapeutic benefit, the mo...

Preparation, characterization and evaluation of glycerol plasticized chitosan/PVA blends for burn wounds.

Chitosan like natural polymers have been widely used in burn wound management. Novel low molecular weight chitosan-PVA soft membranes have been studied for antibacterial and wound healing properties. ...

Burn Wound Bacteriological Profiles, Patient Outcomes, and Tangential Excision Timing: A Prospective, Observational Study.

Because infection can thwart burn healing, microorganisms, their susceptibility patterns, and the effect of tangential excision timing on outcomes of burn patients were examined.

Preparation of self-regulating/anti-adhesive hydrogels and their ability to promote healing in burn wounds.

Few burn dressings can self-regulate the optimal humidity levels that are required for wound healing, while also providing good anti-adhesive properties to prevent damage that can occur when wound dre...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from, accessed 2/14/2013)

The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.

Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.

Persons who donate their services.
