Pexiganan Versus Placebo Control for the Treatment of Mild Infections of Diabetic Foot Ulcers
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Multicenter, Superiority, Placebo-Controlled Phase 3 Study of Pexiganan Cream 0.8% Applied Twice Daily for 14 Days in the Treatment of Adults With Mild Infections of Diabetic Foot Ulcers
The purpose of this study is to establish the clinical superiority and the safety of topical pexiganan cream 0.8% plus standard local wound care, as compared to placebo cream plus standard local wound care, in the treatment of mildly infected diabetic foot ulcers.
