Diabetic Foot clinical trials at University of California Health

5 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • C-myc Biomarker Study for Diabetic Foot Ulcers

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a multi-center observational cohort study of patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) to develop and validate potential tissue-based biomarkers that predict complete wound healing. Eligible and consented participants will begin standard of care treatment after collection of tissue specimens from the wound's edge. An additional tissue specimen is collected at 4 weeks if clinically indicated. Tissues will be tested for c-myc and phosphorylated glucocorticoid receptor (p-GR) levels using validated protocols at a central laboratory. Participants will be followed weekly for up to 12 weeks or until complete wound healing (whichever occurs first). One final assessment 2 weeks after complete wound healing will occur to confirm healing.

  • Implementation of Telemedicine for Patient With Lower Extremity Wounds

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The objective of this study is to determine if patients with lower extremity wounds in rural communities who undergo specialty referral through telemedicine have expedited care compared to patients who are treated through standard in person referral.

  • TEWL Biomarker Study for Diabetic Foot Ulcer Recurrence

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a multicenter study of patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) to develop and validate potential tissue-based biomarkers that predict DFU wound recurrence. Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) will be measured on the closed wound site and a location similar to the wound site (reference site). Participants will be enrolled within two weeks after closure of their DFU. Complete wound healing will be verified at a second visit two weeks later and this visit will start the 16 week timeline where participants will be followed weekly by phone until the earliest of DFU wound recurrence or 16 weeks. Participants who experience a DFU wound recurrence and a subset of participants who do not experience a DFU wound recurrence by week 16 will be asked to attend one final visit.

  • Implementation of ABI and WIfI in Rural Health Clinics

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The objective of this project is to assess the fidelity and sustainability of in improving provider performance with Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) assessment and ulcer staging with the would ischemia foot infection (WIfI) tool for new patients with lower extremity ulcers due to peripheral artery disease (PAD) and diabetes mellitus (DM) at RHCs in the telemedicine network through a rural provider education program that is aligned with preexisting continuing medical education activities.

  • Safety and Efficacy of ActiGraft Compared to Standard of Care in DFUs

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    • The study is a multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled, single blinded clinical study consisting of 150 subjects from up to 20 centers. - The subjects are randomized to receive 1 of 2 treatments, either with ActiGraft and standard of care (SOC) or with SOC alone. - The target ulcers are evaluated weekly by the investigator. The subject is treated once a week, to receive weekly applications of the ActiGraft + SOC or SOC until for up to 12 weeks or until the study ulcer has completely healed (i.e., 100% closure as assessed by the Investigator and blinded assessor and confirmed 2 weeks later at the healing confirmation visit (HCV). One additional visit per week is optional for both arms, for the purpose of changing only (1) the secondary dressing in the ActiGraft arm or (2) change the standard of care dressing in the control arm. - Immediately after the study ulcer is confirmed as completely healed, subjects will enter the 12-week Follow-up Phase. During the Follow-Up phase, subjects will be evaluated twice during the first month and then monthly for two additional visits every 4 weeks until the completion of the 12-week Follow-up Phase.
