Taliderm Dressing for Venous Ulcers
Safety and Wound Healing Efficacy of the TalidermR Wound Dressing a Poly-N-acetyl Glucosamine-derived Membrane Material in Humans With Venous Stasis Ulcers: a Pilot Study.
The study will test a new wound healing dressing called Taliderm® on leg ulcers caused by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Some people with CVI have poor vein circulation that causes ulcers to develop on the lower legs. This new dressing is hoped to help the ulcers heal more quickly. The study hypothesis is to determine whether the TalidermR Wound Dressing, a poly-N-acetyl glucosamine (pGlcNAc) derived membrane material expedites wound healing in humans with venous stasis ulcers.

Interventional
Early Phase 1
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Venous Stasis Ulcers
  • Venous Insufficiency
Other: Taliderm wound healing dressing

Taliderm wound healing dressing will be applied to the wound site as follows depending on assignment to group:

Control group receives no intervention. Experimental Group 1 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR only one time at the beginning of the treatment phase.

Experimental Group 2 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR to the wound every other week during the treatment phase.

Experimental Group 3 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR to the wound every three weeks during the treatment phase.

  • No Intervention: 0
  • Experimental: 1
    Experimental Group 1 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR to the wound once during the treatment phase.
    Intervention: Other: Taliderm wound healing dressing
  • Experimental: 2
    Experimental Group 2 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR to the wound every other week during the treatment phase.
    Intervention: Other: Taliderm wound healing dressing
  • Experimental: 3
    Experimental Group 3 (n = 10) will receive TalidermR to the wound every three weeks during the treatment phase.
    Intervention: Other: Taliderm wound healing dressing
