rolonged, non-healing, inflammatory state). Chronic wounds are often derivative of another illness or condition such as diabetes, obesity, peripheral vascular disease and immobility.

Diabetic foot ulcers are those that occur in individuals with diagnosed diabetes mellitus with peripheral neuropathy. These wounds are considered inherently difficult-to-heal and at risk of becoming chronic due to the underlying disease state interfering with the normal healing process. The longer it takes for a wound to heal, the greater the likelihood of complications.

It is estimated that 7% or 20.8 million people have diabetes in the Unites States alone, and the incidence is expected to increase some 14% annually. Of those diagnosed with diabetes, up to 15% will develop a diabetic foot ulcer in their lifetime, and up to 59% will have recurrence of their foot ulcers, leading to over 82,000 amputations annually.  The total annual direct cost of non-infected diabetic ulcer treatment has been estimated at over $6 billion.

"Non-healing diabetic foot ulcers are the number one cause of non-traumatic amputations in the United States," said Bert Slade, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Healthpoint Biotherapeutics.  "Regranex® Gel continues to be an important option in the therapeutic armamentarium for patients with these wounds."
