Efficacy and Safety of Medifoam and Betafoam in Pressure Ulcer

As the primary objective, the percentage of completely healed patients and the time to complete healing will be assessed after applying the study device, MedifoamⓇ or BetafoamⓇ, for 12 weeks to pressure ulcer patients. In addition, the pressure ulcer size reduction rate over 12 weeks will be evaluated. Patients will ...

Phase N/A

Obtaining and Storing Standard of Care Wound Biopsies for Immediate or Future Wound-Related Scientific Study

The criteria for considering a wound biopsy in a given patient are a chronic wound (venous leg ulcer, diabetic foot ulcer, decubitus ulcer) that has been present for over two (2) months and has failed to progress towards healing (less than 20% decrease in size over 2-week period of time). ...

Phase N/A

Skin Blood Flow Response to Insulin Iontophoresis in Pressure Ulcers of SCI

Pressure ulcers (PU) are skin breakdowns that often form after blood flow in the skin is reduced from prolonged and repeated exposure to externally applied forces. As many as 85% of individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) report the occurrence of at least 1 PU since being injured. Despite ...


Support Surfaces to Prevent Pressure Injuries

The presence of pressure injuries has been considered a quality indicator of health care services and efforts has been made to develop guidelines to prevent this issue. Intensive care unit admissions (ICU) are recognized as risk factors to develop pressure injuries due to reduced mobility of critically ill patients and ...

Phase N/A

Leptospermum Scoparium Honey and Wound Care for Pressure Ulcers

Design: Non-inferiority Trial. This design is intended to demonstrate that Leptospermum scoparium Honey treatment is no worse than the standard treatment for pressure ulcers. Data Collection Procedures: Members of the research team will administer all wound care treatments on all of the patients in this research project. After initial evaluation ...


Use of Honey for Pressure Ulcers in Critically Ill Children

Children admitted to the PICU would be eligible for inclusion. The interventions will be initiated within the hospital itself. All children will be managed as per standard treatment protocols of the unit for various disease conditions. The enrolled children would be randomized to one of the groups 'study group' or ...

Phase N/A

Pressure Area Distribution on a Variety of Clinical Surfaces

Participants in the study will be adults with full mobility, with the capacity to give informed written consent. The investigators will recruit a group of volunteers in order to represent a variety of BMIs, in an attempt to gain a sample of the BMIs found in the population. The investigators ...

Phase N/A

Use of Adhesive Elastic Taping for the Therapy of Medium/Severe Pressure Ulcers in Spinal Cord Injured Patients

All patients with a significant deficiency of skin sensitivity and reduced mobility are potentially at risk of Pressure Ulcers (PUs), in particular the persons affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), also due to their frequent alteration or loss of subcutaneous skin sensitivity. More than one-third of individuals hospitalized in Spinal ...

Phase N/A

A Real World Observational Registry of Chronic Wounds and Ulcers

This is a longitudinal, observational study of chronic wounds and ulcers treated at participating hospital based, outpatient wound centers. Data collection began in 2005. Structured data are collected at the point of care in the patient electronic health record and data from all patients at more than 100 wound centers ...

Phase N/A

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapy in Chronic Wounds Using a Pressure Sore Model

Aim of the study: Evaluation of feasibility, safety and potential effects of stem cells on chronic wounds using a pressure sore model. Clinical relevance: - Accelerated healing of uncomplicated wounds - Enhanced healing of complicated (chronic, non-healing) wounds Study design: - Prospective controlled phase I/II study - Cohort of 5 ...
