Efficacy and Safety of Artacent for Treatment Resistant Lower Extremity Venous and Diabetic Ulcers


Brief description of study

This study will compare the proportion of patients who have wound closure within 12 weeks as well as the time to wound closure in patients receiving Artacent versus standard of care for treatment of non-healing lower extremity wounds. The recurrence of healed wounds will be assessed at 6 months via a telephone survey

Detailed Study Description

This study is to document the efficacy of Artacent Human Amniotic Membrane (Artacent) in the treatment of diabetic and vascular lower extremity ulcers. The study will add to the currently available literature by also assessing the impact of treatment on quality of life and on heal economic outcomes. Finally the study will follow patients for longer than previous studies and will obtain data on healing and recurrence at 6 months.

The objectives of this study are 1) to compare Artacent to standard of care (SOC) in the treatment of non-healing lower extremity ulcers and 2) to evaluate the impact of treatment on patient quality of life. Health economic outcomes will also be collected. The proportion of patients receiving Artacent who have wound closure with 12 weeks will be compared to those patients receiving SOC only will be compared. A comparison of time to wound closure will also be compared between the two populations.

Patients who are randomized to the SOC group (control) and require further treatment at 12 weeks due to incomplete wound healing, may receive treatment with Artacent if the investigator determines that to be a potentially beneficial option.
