Subject with non-VLU-related chronic pain must be on a stable pain medication regimen and must, in the Investigator's opinion, not be anticipated to require a new pain medication for the chronic pain condition during the course of the study.
Subject is not willing to discontinue the use of topical analgesics at the VLU (topical anesthetic is permitted for debridement).

Subject who has received an investigational drug, device, or biological/bioactive treatment within 30 days prior to study enrollment.
Subject who is scheduled to have a vascular intervention on the study extremity during the study.
Subject with a biopsy confirmed active malignancy at the VLU. Also, subject with any active malignancy not at the VLU, with the exception of squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma.

Subject has vasculitis, severe rheumatoid arthritis, and other collagen vascular diseases.
Subject has signs and symptoms of wound infection, cellulitis, or osteomyelitis at the VLU.
Subject has a VLU with an avascular wound bed.
Subject has a VLU with exposed bone, tendon, or fascia.
Subject has other wounds (DFU, surgical, etc.) on the same limb as the VLU.
