Apligraf Versus Standard Therapy in the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

2014-07-24 14:20:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the ability of Apligraf to improve the time to and incidence of complete wound closure of diabetic foot ulcers, as compared to diabetic foot ulcers treated with standard therapy.

Description

Ulceration of the diabetic foot is a result of multiple problems including repetitive stress on a neuropathic or insensate area that is often associated with an underlying bony prominence. By healing diabetic foot ulcers quickly the risks of infection, osteomyelitis (infeciton of the bone) and limb loss can be reduced.

This study will evaluate the ability of Apligraf to heal diabetic foot ulcers that have been present for at least 2 weeks and are between 1 - 16 cm2 in area. Patients will be randomized to either (50:50 chance) treatment with Apligraf or a saline moistened dressing regimen (standard therapy). All patients will receive standard cares for the ulcers which includes debridement, orthotics and off-loading throughout the treatment period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A state of unconsciousness as a complication of diabetes mellitus. It occurs in cases of extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA or extreme HYPOGLYCEMIA as a complication of INSULIN therapy.
