Treatment of Cutaneous Ulcers With a Novel Biological Dressing

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00207818
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : September 21, 2005
Last Update Posted : February 11, 2014
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
CHU de Quebec-Universite Laval

Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is to evaluate the effect of a biological dressing on the healing process of venous ulcers. The dressing is a reconstructed skin substitute made with the patients own cells.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Venous Ulcers Device: self assembled skin substitute (SASS) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The hypothesis of this trial is that the cutaneous model SASS, a dermal epidermal skin substitute, created by the LOEX could be as high-performant, or even better, than the one's already existent in North America for the wound care. We anticipate showing on 6 patients that ulcer that did not close with conventional treatment, will heal or at least improve with this treatment.
