Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint is the eradication of the bio-burden as measured by a reduction in culture growth to ≤ +2. [ Time Frame: at 28 days post enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary endpoint measure is a reduction on wound size. [ Time Frame: 28 days post enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 7
Study Start Date: December 2005
Study Completion Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Nitric Oxide
    Topically applied gaseous nitric oxide at 8 to 10 parts per million, for 8 hours each night for 14 nights.
    Other Names:
    • ViaNOx-H
    • gaseous nitric oxide
    • gNO
Detailed Description:

The primary goal of this study is to determine the effects of topically applied gaseous nitric oxide on the bio-burden of chronic non-healing wounds of the lower extremities. Reports will include:

  • Comparisons of the demographics and diagnoses of those patients treated with ViaNOx-H.
  • Tabulation as to the organisms found and the bio-burden as measured by counts (0 to +4).
  • Tabulation of the number and types of adverse events during ViaNOx-H treatment.
  • Comparisons of the response of different organisms to ViaNOx-H treatment.
