|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Beta Adrenergic Receptor Modulation of Burn Wound Healing|
- The primary efficacy parameter will be complete ulcer healing, which is defined as 100% epithelialization with no drainage or need for an absorptive dressing. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- 100% re-epithelialization will be clinically determined at each visit by the Investigator. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
