Default Re: Clinical Trials Updates

Obtaining and Storing Standard of Care Wound Biopsies for Immediate or Future Wound-Related Scientific Study
Quote:
The objective of this study protocol is to use wound biopsies that have been obtained during standard of care management for further scientific evaluation after standard evaluation by a pathologist. Further imaging and molecular analyses would closely evaluate the presence, architecture, and interaction of wound biofilm and human host tissues.

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). Also any suspicious wound in which cancer is strongly considered on a clinical basis should be biopsied immediately without any arbitrary timeline being imposed.
