Pivotal Trial of Dermagraft(R) to Treat Diabetic Foot Ulcers
A Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Single-Blind, Phase III, Clinical Investigation of Dermagraft(R) in Patients With Plantar Diabetic Foot Ulcers
This study randomly assigns patients with diabetic foot ulcers to receive standard therapy (surgical debridement, saline-moistened gauze and offloading) alone or standard therapy plus Dermagraft(R). Dermagraft is a device containing live human fibroblasts grown on an absorbable Vicryl mesh. Patients are seen weekly until they heal or the 12-week treatment period is complete.

  • Ulcer is free of necrotic debris, exhibits no signs of clinical infection, and appears to be made up of healthy vascularized tissue.
  • Patient's Ankle-Arm Index by Doppler is >/=0.7.
  • Patient has adequate circulation to the foot as evidenced by a palpable pulse.
  • Female patients of child bearing potential must not be pregnant and must use accepted means of birth control.
