Grafix® DFU: Open-Label Extension Option to Evaluate Safety & Efficacy of Grafix® for Chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU)

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: NCT01596920
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 11, 2012
Last Update Posted : April 9, 2014

Osiris Therapeutics

Brief Summary:

The primary objective of the present study is to further establish in a randomized controlled trial, the safety and efficacy of weekly Grafix® administration versus control in patients with chronic diabetic foot ulcers. The primary endpoint is complete wound closure of the index wound, defined as 100% re-epithelialization as determined by the Investigator.

Grafix® is a product regulated for use in the US by the FDA as a Human Cellular and Tissue Based Product (HCT/P) under Title 21 CFR Part 1271.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetic Foot Ulcers Other: Tissue Other: Control Phase 4

Detailed Description:

The treatment indication is for chronic, diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) between 1cm2 and 15cm2 located below the malleoli on the plantar or dorsal surface of the foot. Patients must have confirmed Type I or Type II Diabetes.

Patients will receive treatment every week for 12 weeks duration in the Single-Blind Treatment phase of the trial.

Patients who receive Grafix® or control will be evaluated for primary efficacy up to 84 days, and for safety and wound re-occurrence for 84 days after wound closure. Patients in the control group whose wounds are not closed at the end of treatment may be offered Grafix® in an Open-Label Treatment phase. The Open-Label Treatment phase can last up to an additional 84 days.

  3. number of applications of Grafix® versus control [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days after the Single-Blind Treatment Visits ]
  4. number of re-occurrences of index wound post-healing [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days after the Single-Blind Treatment Visits ]
  5. percent of wounds achieving complete closure [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days after the Single-Blind Treatment Visits ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Between 18 years and 80 years of age inclusive, as of the date of screening
  2. Confirmed diagnosis of Type I or Type II Diabetes
  3. An Index Ulcer defined as chronic (presence of wound for > 4 weeks) but not present for more than 52 weeks at the Screening Visit
  4. Index Ulcer is located below the malleoli on the plantar or dorsal surface of the foot
  5. The Index Ulcer is between 1cm2 and 15 cm2 at the Screening Visit
  6. The Index Ulcer extends into the dermis or subcutaneous tissue without evidence of exposed muscle, tendon, bone, or joint capsule
  7. Wound is free of necrotic debris
  8. Patient has adequate circulation to the foot as documented by either:

    • Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) > 0.70 and < 1.30, or
    • In patients with non-compressible ankle vessels defined as an ABI ≥ 1.30, a Toe Brachial Index (TBI) ≥ 0.50
    • In patients with non-compressible ankle vessels defined as an ABI ≥ 1.30 and TBI cannot be performed (e.g., toe is absent, wounds are present, or site cannot perform a TBI), a Doppler waveform in the posterior tibial or dorsalis pedis arteries at the ankle consistent with adequate flow in the foot (biphasic or triphasic) and other diagnostic confirmation of adequate flow (e.g., duplex imaging, normal pulse volume recording [PVR] testing).

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Index Ulcer is of non-diabetic pathophysiology
