Do You Have A Diabetic Foot Ulcer?
Foot ulcers are breaks in the skin or a deep sore, which can become infected. Foot ulcers can result from minor scrapes, cuts that heal slowly or from the rubbing of shoes that do not fit well. People with diabetes are more likely to develop foot ulcers. Among people with diabetes, a foot ulcer is the beginning stage of approximately 85% of severe foot infections that ultimately require some part of the toe, foot or lower leg to be amputated.
The Deaconess Clinic Would Care Center is conducting a national clinical research study for a new investigational treatment for diabetic foot ulcers. If you have a foot ulcer, you may qualify for a no-cost physician evaluation, study medication and compensation as part of the research study.
Health insurance is not required for participation.
