Brief Summary:
This study will compare the Omeza® Products Bundle to standard of care (SOC) for in subjects with chronic venous leg ulcers and subjects with diabetic foot ulcers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Venous Leg Ulcer Diabetic Foot Ulcer Device: Wound dressing Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, multi-center, open-label study comparing the Omeza® Products Bundle versus standard of care treatments for 2 different types of chronic ulcers (venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers). The treatment period will be 12 weeks, with subjects coming into the study site weekly for evaluations, photography and formal measurements of the target wound, and dressing changes. There will be a total of 13 study site visits. The Screening Visit (Day 0) will occur 1 week prior to randomization and will include routine labs and vascular assessment to determine inclusion/exclusion of the potential subject from the study; followed by weekly treatment visits (Week 1 through Week 11); randomization will occur at Treatment Visit Week 1; the Treatment Visit Week 12/End of Study Visit will include end of study labs. Target wounds will be photographed and measured, and vascular assessment will be done at each of the 13 visits.

If the wound closes before Week 12, the subject will continue to come in for all the remaining study visits until study completion. If the wound does not close by Week 12, the subject will be immediately exited from the study and no further follow-up will occur as part of the study.
