Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Dermagraft(R) for the Treatment of Patients With Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Official Title  ICMJE A Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Single-Blind Clinical Investigation of Dermagraft(R) in Patients With Plantar Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Brief Summary This study randomly assigns patients with plantar diabetic foot ulcers to receive conventional therapy (debridement, infection control, saline-moistened gauze dressings, and standardized off-weighting) alone or conventional therapy plus Dermagraft(R). Dermagraft is a device containing live human fibroblasts grown on an absorbable polyglactin (Vicryl) mesh. Patients are evaluated weekly until Week 12, then every four weeks until Week 32.

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The study ulcer is on the plantar surface of the forefoot
  • The ulcer is >/= 1.0 cm2 at Day 0 (the day of randomization).
  • The ulcer extends through the dermis and into subcutaneous tissue but without exposure of muscle, tendon, bone, or joint capsule.
  • The ulcer is free of necrotic debris and clinical infection and is comprised of healthy, vascular tissue and is suitable for skin grafting.
  • The patient's Ankle-Arn Index by Doppler is >0.1
  • There is adequate circulation to the foot to allow for healing.
  • The patient's diabetes is under control as determined by the Investigator.
  • Female patients capable of bearing children must test negative for pregnancy and must use an acceptable means of birth control.
  • Patient and caregiver are willing to participate in the clinical study and can comply with the follow-up regimen.
  • Patient or his/her legal representative has read and signed the Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved Informed Consent form.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The ulcer has tunnels or sinus tracts that cannot be completely debrided.
  • The patient's diabetes is uncontrolled and could interfere with the completion of the study.
  • There is a medical condition(s) that in the Investigator's opinion make the patient an inappropriate candidate for this study.
  • Patient has/had a malignant disease not in remission for 5 years or more.
  • Patient has acute or chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, has a serum albumin of <2.0 gms/dL, or has alkaline phosphatase or LDH at twice the upper limit of the normal range.

  • Patient has Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) or is infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
  • Patient has participated in another study utilizing an investigational drug or device within the previous 30 days.
