Research + Clinical Trials


A Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Controlled Clinical Study of NuShiled and Standard of Card (SOC) Compared to SOC Alone for the Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

This study will follow a superiority design that will test whether the treatment group (NuShield plus SOC) compared to the control group (SOC alone) demonstrates statistically significant differences for time to and frequency of complete wound closure in patients with diabetic foot ulcers. Subjects in the study will be randomized 1:1 to either: Group 1, NuShield plus SOC weekly for up to 24 weeks, or Group 2, SOC (control) weekly for up to 24 weeks.
